We are born with the ability to regulate our own emotions.
After a car accident or the break-up of a relationship, we are likely to experience heightened emotions. It can feel like they will never end. Eventually, however, the emotionality naturally resolves itself. One day we find ourselves driving without a second thought or madly in love with another person.
However, for some circumstances this natural ability may be blocked.
In his study Luc Nicon observed that during a Tipi session people relived a moment in the past when they had lost consciousness. After revisiting this gap, the emotional difficulty no longer recurred.
Researchers such as Bruce McEwen, Jean Pierre Changeux, and Joseph Ledoux have also associated lost of consciousness (often occurring during pre- and perinatal occurrences) as the cause of emotional patterns and long-standing traumas.
Our body stores the memory of the sensations leading up to the loss of consciousness (suffocation, heart rate increase, knot in the stomach). When we experience an emotional difficulty, those same sensations instantaneously resurface. Nicon found that by consciously re-experiencing these sensations allows emotional blocks to be integrated and resolved – permanently.
These patterns are deactivated when the event that created them are relived through sensations, without mental interference. It is through physical sensations and not intellectual analysis that using Tipi we look for, find, and re-experience the root of a fear or behavioral pattern. By giving attention to these physical sensations and how they shift, a natural and permanent regulation takes place.
A critical benefit of this technique is the ability to resolve long-standing traumas and emotional patterns without emotionally re-activating the patient.
Tipi sessions rarely need to exceed 30 minutes to obtain a complete and permanent resolution.
Tipi is widely used by nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists in France, Germany, Belgium, USA, Spain, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.
Cedric Bertelli has been introducing Tipi in the U.S. since 2009. He has been personally trained by Mr. Nicon in France, and they continue to collaborate closely as the technique gains worldwide momentum.
