Emotions Affect The Way We Breathe, Feel, Move & Heal.

Neuroconnective Therapy looks at your whole body and not just your injury or condition.

By taking in the broader aspects of your life and how your nervous system interprets information, you quickly learn to identify the triggers in your environment so you can plan for predictable outcomes.  Emotions affect the way we breathe, feel, move and heal.

Energy + Motion = Emotions. 

Throughout your body there is a network of connective tissues called fascia.

Facts about Fascia.

  • Fascia thickens upon lines of tension.
  • It can glue itself to muscles causing restricted movement.
  • It covers muscle, it weaves its way through your body and suspends and encases your organs.
  • It responds to emotions, so when you become uptight so does your fascia and it doesn’t always relax when you do.
  • It also wraps around your organs so when you feel compressed you are quite literally feeling the restrictions as the connective tissue tries to hold you safe.  The feeling isn’t very nice at all.

2. The Heart- Brain Connection.

  • Your heart produces electrical activity which is called a sinus wave. This wave influences your brain waves and emotions carry different frequencies. Isn’t that interesting?
  • Feelings like happy, love, contentment and gratitude carry the highest frequencies. 
  • Self criticism, self doubt, undermining, being subjected to negativity carries the lowest frequencies.

3. Mind Your Matter.


  • Your mind is the most powerful thing in your body.
  • When all is happy in mind-universe all is well in the body.
  • A real threat or a perceived threat elicits the same response.#

Your mind can come up with the most fantastical scenarios about stressful events that haven’t even happened yet. You can play the stories over and over as if they are real and this results in a series of chemical reactions that range from making you a bit upset to dangerously unwell

4. Hebb’s Law – Neurons That Fire Together Wire Together. 

  • Repetitive negative thought patterns are both physically and mentally harmful.
  • Talking about your condition, injury, hurt stimulates pain pathways.

The way you think affects the way you feel and heal.

Take that idea, distil it into daily life and quickly take stock of what you are feeling right now. Depending on the level of stress in your environment and how you are managing that pressure, you begin to understand why physical injuries become chronic or a chest infection is recurrent. 

5. Physician Heal Thyself – Socrates. 


  • Understanding how your body responds to pain and stress is a big step in taking care of yourself.
  • Our bodies are designed to heal.
  • Thought and emotions play a big part in healing.
  • Taking personal ownership of your own healing is empowering and speeds up the process.
