How does it work?
The Lightening Process works on the basis that the body reacts to threats by producing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol which affect our muscles and nervous system. According to practitioners of the process, certain techniques of movement and mental coaching can help to overcome this response to fear and worry, allowing the body to concentrate on healing itself – so that you can start to get more out of life.
The Lightening Process is taught over a period of three consecutive days, with seminars taking up 3-5 hours each day. You will be encouraged to continue applying the Process’ techniques by yourself after the course has finished, but don’t panic - your practitioner will continue to give you support, either in person or on the phone.
Is it for me?
Practitioners claim that this treatment can help patients to overcome symptoms of conditions such as Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME), chronic pain and multiple sclerosis, as well as assisting with weight loss, phobias and depression.
The Lightning Process is suitable for children and teenagers as well as adults. It is not a physically demanding process – good news for pregnant women and those who are not very mobile.
Good to know
The Lightning Process was invented by British osteopath Phil Parker in the late 1990s.
