What is IBSR? (Integration Based Stress Removal)
IBSR is a therapeutic tool that addresses the trauma and stress that is in our body causing an increase in anxiety and depression.
IBSR resets the body and the body regains homeostasis (stability/balance). Once the balance is restored the stress is released in the body.
What happens when you experience unhealthy stress?
As humans we have an animalistic response to freeze (fright and flight) called, “primal immediacy.” The body may hold on to the stress instead of allowing it to release unless the primal response of the threat can be reenacted in a safe, gradual, and natural way. IBSR helps the body release unhealthy stress.
Individuals develop unhealthy habits and patterns of behaviors that interfere with our ability to manage stress effectively thus causing an increase in anxiety, difficulty focusing, and depression.
Integration Based Stress Removal has shown to be effective in helping people with a wide variety of conditions including:
- Eating Disorders
- Emotional/Physical Distress
- Everyday Stress
- Numerous Mental Health Diagnoses
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Symptoms
- Abuse (Physical, Sexual, Emotional)
- Addiction Issues
