Overview - Why TVM™?

The Triple Vagal Method® (TVM™) is a revolutionary, rapid and safe somatic approach to releasing trauma from the body by inducing a therapeutic level of oxytocin, breaking down calcification of the fascia, and regulating the nervous system to build resilience. TVM™ is a modality that gives you measurable physical results and psychological results faster than anything out there. Working directly, safely and efficiently with the nervous system, TVM™ uses the intelligence of your body and its innate desire to optimally restore itself; releasing stress and trauma from the body & mind.

Trauma healing and building vagal tone supports a thriving human experience in virtually every way, everything from healthier bodies, stronger immune systems, less stress, the capacity to make better decisions & a larger cognitive capacity to name a few. In fact, many may say it is the foundational prelude to absolutely every other successful & thriving experience or condition an individual can have. This training lays down the foundations of trauma & trauma healing through what may be the most effective bottom-up approach; TVM™.

This training provides the foundations of trauma-informed somatic therapy, based on the Polyvagal Theory, in addition to an understanding of trauma in the human fascia and the Triple Vagal Method® basic releasing techniques to restore the nervous system from its key trauma responses. Our training also integrates anatomy study, tantric practices, cognitive-behavioral therapy, somatic meditations and business coaching for practitioners.

The syllabus was designed to be a robust and comprehensive framework to introduce key concepts in bottom-up somatic therapy and become a licensed TVM™ Practitioner.
