What is the SOOTHE program like?
SOOTHE is a program consisting of three ten minute segments of a sound frequency tone in the mid range designed to create an envelope of safety that allows for a reduction of fear and anxious thoughts.
What does the SOOTHE progam do?
This soothing program wraps you up in a soft blanket of gentle sound, encasing you in a bubble of safety. This allows you to feel protected enough to relax and begin the healing process.
Who needs SOOTHE?
HUSO configured the SOOTHE program specifically for those who are facing the challenges of fear, panic and highly anxious thoughts. You might choose SOOTHE as your program if:
- Your nervous system is stuck in full on “5-alarm-fire” fight or flight.
- You are hyper sensitive to sudden unexpected sounds, events or sensations.
- You are overly worried about your health and well-being and are alarmed by every new feeling or unexplained reaction in your body.
- Your mind is stuck in loop mode, continuously recycling fearful and anxious thoughts.
- You are filled with feelings of depression or hopelessness.
- You feel afraid, as if something “bad” might happen if you allow yourself to relax.
When is the best time to use SOOTHE?
The SOOTHE program can be used any time of day or night, whenever you feel the fear monster begin to rear its little head. If you can train yourself to recognize the signals your body gives you of an impending anxiety stampede, you will be able to cut it off at the pass by spending 30 minutes in a quiet calm space listening to the calming sound of SOOTHE.
How often should I use it?
Once you have spent a few days acclimating yourself to the new sensations that come with a relaxed state, you can use SOOTHE two times in a row for a full hour session if you feel you need this.
You may find yourself releasing some long held tension, trauma and emotions held in your body. This can look like crying, laughing, muscle twitches, shaking, feelings of cold or heat, or low-level aches. This is a type of detox and is normal when you begin to relax after months and sometimes years of carrying around deep unresolved issues that caused your nervous system to become traumatized in the first place.
If this happens and becomes too much, try breathing through it by utilizing deep slow steady breaths, making sure you are breathing from your diaphragm rather than shallow breathing from your chest only. (You can monitor this by placing your hand on your abdomen. If your hand rises and falls with your breath, then you are breathing correctly for this purpose.) Try not to contract. Visualize a scene that brings you comfort and let yourself relax into the sound so that these long-held patterns can be released and healing can occur. If it gets too overwhelming, then stop the program and try again when you are ready. You can also start with listening to only one of the three ten-minute segments for the first few days until you get used to HUSO, and then gradually work up to completing a full 30 minute session.
Remember, your body and mind need to reaquaint themselves with feelings of relaxation, of knowing it is safe, and nothing “bad” will happen if you allow yourself to let go.
