Introduction to Anxiety Relief Online Course. Video One- How to Use this Course.
This course is designed to teach you about your own nervous system and how we view anxiety through a Somatic Therapy lens.

Each module is full of tools, practices and information designed to empower you to:
- accurately self reflect
- shift neural pathways of anxiety to pathways of regulation and calm
- feel safer in your body
- have more choices about your nervous system state
