What is Root-Cause Therapy and How Can It Help?

Root-Cause Therapy is a revolutionary healing method that aims to address the underlying causes of various mental and emotional issues, such as anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, and more. Unlike conventional therapies that focus on the symptoms or the surface-level problems, Root-Cause Therapy goes deeper into the subconscious mind and the body to release the negative emotions, beliefs, and patterns that are holding you back from living your best life.

Root-Cause Therapy was created by Melissa Hiemann, the co-founder of The Centre for Healing, an online education company that offers courses and certifications in this innovative modality. Melissa Hiemann has a background in NLP, hypnosis, and timeline therapy, but she found that these techniques were not enough to heal her own anxiety and substance abuse issues. She realized that there were key somatic elements missing from these approaches, such as working with the nervous system, the breath, and the body sensations12.

She developed Root-Cause Therapy as a way to integrate these somatic elements with the cognitive and emotional aspects of healing. Root-Cause Therapy is based on the premise that most of our issues stem from unresolved trauma, which can be defined as any event or situation that overwhelms our capacity to cope and leaves us feeling helpless, hopeless, or out of control3. Trauma can be caused by a single event, such as an accident or abuse, or by repeated or chronic stressors, such as neglect or bullying. Trauma can also be inherited from our ancestors or passed down through our family systems.

Trauma affects not only our mind but also our body and our energy system. It creates blockages in our nervous system, which regulates our stress response and our emotions. It also creates distortions in our energy field, which influences our thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. These blockages and distortions prevent us from expressing our true self and living authentically3.

Root-Cause Therapy helps to identify and release these blockages and distortions by using a combination of tools and techniques, such as:

  • Somatic awareness: becoming aware of the sensations, feelings, and impulses in the body
  • Breathwork: using the breath to activate, regulate, and calm the nervous system
  • Energy work: using various methods to clear, balance, and harmonize the energy field
  • Hypnosis: using trance states to access the subconscious mind and reprogram it with positive suggestions
  • Timeline therapy: using visualization to revisit and heal past events and create a positive future
  • NLP: using language patterns to change the way we think and communicate

By using these tools and techniques, Root-Cause Therapy helps to:

  • Release negative emotions, such as fear, anger, sadness, guilt, or shame
  • Heal negative beliefs, such as “I’m not good enough”, “I’m not worthy”, or “I’m not safe”
  • Break negative patterns, such as self-sabotage, addiction, or procrastination
  • Restore balance and harmony in the nervous system and the energy field
  • Enhance self-esteem, confidence, and empowerment
  • Increase happiness, peace, and joy
  • Improve relationships, health, and well-being
