What Is Ruden Havening?

Havening techniques describe are based on evolutionary biology and offer you the opportunity to live a healthier, hopefully, happier and more productive life. To Western eyes, to watch pain instantly disappear, long-standing problems resolve and disturbing memories fade into the irretrievable past is nothing short of astonishing.

We call this method Havening. Havening, the transitive verb of the word haven, means to put into a safe place. While some forms of this approach have been around for decades, many mental health professionals remain skeptical given that it involves no medication, talking or prolonged exposure.

How Do You Prepare For Ruden Havening?

You should discuss what to expect from a Havening appointment with your practitioner before going in. Havening can deal with specific memories and it’s a good idea to establish your boundaries and goals in advance. We will do everything possible to address any concerns you may have and make sure that your appointment is as pleasant and stress-free as possible.

Why Is Havening Performed?

The Havening Techniques® are powerful tools that can be used to treat the consequences of encoded traumatic or stressful memories. Depending on the nature of the encoded trauma it can be done with guidance by a certified Havening Techniques practitioner or by oneself. Please do not use the Havening Technique with yourself for a serious trauma or if you suffer from any psychological disorders. We advise that you seek the help of a professional mental health care provider who is certified in the Havening Technique if you have experienced severe trauma or suffer from a psychological disorder.

What Can You Expect From Havening?

The Havening Techniques® is a method, which is designed to change the brain to de-traumatize the memory and remove its negative effects from both our psyche and body. As part of its protocol, The Havening Techniques uses the sensory input of the human touch as a therapeutic tool which we have identified as Havening Touch®. The process of the Havening Technique requires touch. The decision of who should provide the touch must be made jointly. For guidelines Please see The Havening Techniques educational materials and certification process. Please see our disclaimer for additional information.

What Is The Follow Up To Ruden Havening?

We cannot fully guarantee the effectiveness of this technique, but in most cases it has been observed to be successful, the positive effects seeming to be permanent. Memories and emotions may continue to emerge following your session, and it’s important to discuss any ongoing symptoms or potential side effects with your healthcare provider.

What Are The Potential Risks Of Ruden Havening?

There is a possibility that Havening techniques will produce negative reactions, such as sadness or anger, during the session. Emotional and physical discomfort may occur, and there is a small chance that emotional symptoms will be worse following the session. This typically occurs when the technique causes surfacing of forgotten but still powerful negative memories. If you are experiencing negative side effects, you should cease Havening and seek alternative care from a mental health professional.
