A Mindfully Based Nervous System Re~Regulation
and New Direction for
Healing Chronic Conditions
Traumatic Stress, Anxiety Disorders and Pain
We live in a complex society. Too much to do, too many worries, too little time. The overactive mind wreaks havoc on the body, soul, spirit, and quality of life of the individual. Add to this, chemical, physical or emotional stressors and trauma thus creating an environment ripe for stress related disorders.
From chronic pain, migraines, low energy and sex drive, to sleeplessness, job dissatisfaction, an inability to stay focused, or outright diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiac disease, chronic stress obliterates the possibility of healthy living.
There is much research and scientific literature on the benefits of meditation, breathing exercises, yoga, herbal remedies and the like. All these may help, but if the nervous system is operating in Survival Mode which keeps the nervous system dysregulated due to constant or chronic stress, it is very difficult to benefit and get the most out of these healthy disciplines.
Chronic stress produces a complex array of internal biochemical changes, suffice to say that “Serotonin” the feel good hormone goes down, and there are more elevated amounts of “Cortisol” the stressor hormone which allows you to survive a sticky situation. Unrelenting stress may cause exhaustion of all systems, from endocrine to digestive to the nervous system, even individual cells are affected.
Thankfully for the research in bodymind science, there is a powerful and efficient approach to get you out of the Survival Mode; a certain way so beneficial it actually produces deep peace and relaxation, allowing you to expel the excess stress, energy and tension. The body-mind is autoregulatory and has an innate system that basically “knows what to do”.
This most powerful biological, self~regulating system in the body controls, coordinates and re~organizes all other systems and has the potential to release stress, trauma and pain in such a way that it can turn previously painful experiences into life changing positive ones. This in turn will be followed by rest, recovery and deep states of peace.
Such a discovery, as supported by larger research studies, will be known as a major breakthrough in the healing arts and sciences.

"The real secret is to make a more evolved human being. A more evolved nervous system. So people can come to Integrative Bodywork not only just for pain, stress and trauma release but also to become more aware, more evolved, go further into healing and have higher levels of consciousness and health.
When subjected to a life stressor or life challenge, the nervous system efficiency is measured in how well it is able to adapt, recover, learn, and eventually evolve into something new and more efficient. That's what growth, healing and positive evolution are all about."

Hands~On Therapy for Healing
Introduction to Unified Therapy™
Unified Therapy™ has gained increased attention from a wide variety of practitioners including; physicians, mental health practitioners, physical therapists, body workers, neurologists, and psychiatrists. Featured in a presentation offered during the 2011 Integrative Medicine Symposium held at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, Eugene Ahn, MD, an oncologist, spoke about the vital role of consciousness in healing.
Bringing together many different disciplines and therapies to find common understandings, Unified Therapy™ has demonstrated very promising results particularly in regards to conditions such as: PTSD, Anxiety and Chronic Pain, which are often times resistant to other more traditional therapeutic approaches.
We invite all medical and healing practitioners to view the Unified Therapy™ introduction video which includes patient testimonials and footage of patients undergoing treatment. Mr. Fazio encourages collaboration across multi-therapeutic disciplines. For referrals or for more information, please call us at 321-456-5051.

The most common complaint in current medical practice, that of persistent and unexplained CHRONIC PAIN, has its roots in the changes in brain circuitry associated with traumatization.
~ Robert C. Scaer, MD
