Polyvagal Theory

The Polyvagal theory explains the different states with which we respond to our environment in an effort to survive. Specifically, it describes the physiological changes in our body that occur as a result of perceiving threat (or danger) instead of safety.

It helps us understand what we perceive as a threat and how that perception stimulates inflammation and other physical changes in our body. Furthermore, it helps us distinguish between beneficial responses (cuts, broken bones, natural disasters) and detrimental ones (chronic stress, anxiety, overwhelm).

Polyvagal theory helps us understand why we get stuck in patterns we desire to change. If our goal was merely to survive then there would be little need to address this further. However, at WeHeal our goal is to thrive and if you want to achieve a state of Life Is Wonderful, then understanding the Polyvagal theory and its impact on your life can make all of the difference.
