What if there was a war overseas and you signed up to serve your country and then you got there you were told you could never go home from the war? That would be cruel, inhuman, unjust and unfair. For many veterans, that is exactly what happens. Their body comes home, but their nervous system stays at war. It’s like never really coming home. It’s hard to re-adapt to normal life, to come out of fight or flight mode, to feel safe, secure and able to focus on relationships, getting a job, and building a life when your nervous system believes you are still at war. For some the journey back home is only terrifically hard. Unfortunately, for too many it seems impossible and they give up on life when everything they try fails.
The need to help veterans make this transition is huge, and I’m very honored to have been invited to present Accunect Connect for the veterans community. Accunect is a very powerful tool for releasing deep emotional trauma and balancing the bodymind on all levels to come back to stability and health and the potential to help veterans with Accunect is exciting. The course is being organized by Pathways for Veterans, a national organization that helps veterans to heal and to reconstruct their lives. They have a powerful vision of hope for veterans by helping them find their path to health and wholeness through creative programs in many areas.
I’ve worked with some veterans in the past and I know this work can help. Accunect was developed to address the root causes of disease – which in traditional Chinese Medicine is mostly emotional trauma. Over my many years in practice I’ve really seen that underneath the most difficult physical and psychological problems is deeply held trauma. Often this is in the form of abuse or other severe emotional trauma from childhood. Since children don’t have the tools and maturity to deal with these traumas, they just become imprinted on the nervous system. The patterns of stress underlying disease aren’t conscious choices, they are reactions coming from deep within the nervous system. For veterans, the stress and trauma comes in adulthood, but it is so intense and so unrelenting that it makes a deep and lasting impact on their psyche and their nervous system.
These kinds of stress are difficult to address using talk therapy for that reason. To get powerful shifts in these patterned responses you need to balance the whole bodymind to change the automatic responses – no one decides to jump at a sudden noise, it’s a nervous system reaction. You have to balance the nervous system, as well as the acupuncture meridian system in order to break the cycle.
It’s not just me that gets results with mental and emotional issues – the system works for everyone. Here’s a testimonial from Accunect student Gary Niki about his results using Accunect shortly after taking the class to help a client battling depression:
“Recently, during a bout of depression, I met with Gary Niki, who performed a procedure called Accunect Connect on me, a process in which one identifies "what is ready to shift" and then, through simple movements, helps that shift occur. Gary then showed me how to perform the procedure on myself. The results were amazing. Within about a minute of performing the movements, I felt something ripple free from my heart center. I continued to perform the movements and, as I did so, laughter repeatedly bubbled up. What an amazing shift from the feelings of despair and irritability I had been experiencing before beginning this process--and so fast. In just minutes I felt much lighter and happier. I can't thank Gary enough to introducing me to this incredibly simple yet profoundly effective technology.”
