Epigenetics: The Science of Gene Expression

Epigenetics is a big word, but it's all about how our environment and experiences can change the way your genes work without changing the actual DNA. Think of your DNA as a giant instruction manual for your body. Epigenetics is like the bookmarks and highlighters that tell your body which parts of the manual to read and which parts to skip.

When you have traumatic experiences, it can add "bad" bookmarks to your DNA. These bookmarks can turn off important genes that help with things like stress management and immune function. This can lead to health problems like heart disease, diabetes, and mental health issues.

The NLP Communication Model: How You Process Information

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It's a way of understanding how you think, communicate, and behave. The NLP Communication Model explains how you take in information from the world, process it, and then respond.

Here's how it works:

  • Deletion: You ignore some information because your brain can't handle everything at once.
  • Distortion: You change information to fit your beliefs and experiences.
  • Generalization: You make broad rules based on specific events.

With traumatic events, you delete, distort, or generalize information in ways that make you feel unsafe or unloved. For example, if a child is often yelled at, they might create the belief that they are always bad, even if that's not true.

The Impact of Traumatic Life Experiences on Health and Behavior

Epigenetic Changes

Traumatic life experiences can add negative tags to your DNA. These tags can turn off genes that help manage stress and keep the body healthy.

This can lead to:

  • Mental Health Issues: Increased risk of depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
  • Physical Health Problems: Higher chances of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions.
  • Accelerated Aging: If you've experienced a lot of traumas, you might age faster at a cellular level, becoming susceptible to diseases earlier in life.

Changes in Communication and Behavior

The NLP Communication Model helps you understand how trauma can change the way you see the world and interact with others.

If you have a trauma history, your unconscious mental filters will:

  • Delete Positive Experiences: You ignore good things that happen to you because you are so used to negative things. What we notice and what we focus on becomes real for us.
  • Distort Reality: You see neutral or positive events as negative because of your prior life experiences. Distortion allows you to take an experience and change it.
  • Generalize Negatively: You might believe that all people are untrustworthy or that you are always in danger. Generalizations take information from one experience and apply it to a larger range of experiences or areas of life.

Releasing Your Unhealthy Patterns and Building Resilience

Fear and resistance to change are universal human experiences that create all kinds of unhealthy patterns and habits. Change and growth are a normal part of life, and resisting it is exhausting and painful. Your perspective and approach to life is one of the few things you can control.

The difference between resisting change and leaning into it comes down to knowledge and understanding. One simple concept that helps you embrace the endless cycle of change is the Universal Model of Change

Traumatic events happen for you at all ages and stages of life, and they can have serious physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual effects. No one escapes hard times, and  there are ways to help you build resilience:

  • Supportive Relationships: Find and surround yourself with caring friends can help you feel safe and loved.
  • Positive Experiences: Start exploring activities or skills that you're interested in as nurturing your spirit will begin counteracting the negative effects.
  • Therapy and Counseling: Professional help teaches you how to manage your feelings and to establish a functional baseline for living.
  • Coaching and Energy Medicine: Rapid Releases and Breakthrough coaching release the underlying issues creating your negative behaviors by expanding your neurology for optimal functioning.

  • Intuitive Bodywork: Unwinding and releasing imbalances from your body right down to the cellular level.

Intuitive Bodywork

Understanding traumatic life experiences through the lenses of epigenetics and the NLP Communication Model hopefully helps you to be a little kinder and gentler with yourself. No one has a 'perfect' life, and some experience more stress and trauma than others.

Give yourself the space, the grace, and the time to 'clean the filters' in your unconscious mind. Filter cleaning changes your physiology and improves your behavior in every area of life. The coaching, energy medicine, and intuitive bodywork services offered are the tools used for breaking free from your pain and unhealthy patterns to lead a healthy, happy life. Remember, it's never too late to make a positive change!

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you focus on in your practice?

I focus on supporting you in releasing your unhealthy, unconscious patterns impacting your life. These are negative physical, mental, and emotional patterns arising from inherited generational trauma, gestational trauma (what your birth mother experienced during your pregnancy), and from your own personal traumatic experiences from birth up to around 7yrs old. At the point of conception, individuals inherit generational trauma energies, and they absorb or collect personal trauma energies from that point forward.

Trauma is trauma at all ages, and it negatively affects every aspect of your health and well-being. As children, we absorb and learn from our surroundings; we mimic and repeat what we see and experience, becoming creatures of habit with both positive and negative unconscious patterns as adults. For example, research has shown that adverse childhood experiences contribute to the development of health issues, such as obesity, heart disease, depression, and chronic pain in adulthood.

What should I expect after a session?

Coaching, Energy Medicine, Ortho-Bionomy® & Intuitive Bodywork

Keep in mind that after a session, you can expect to go through an "integrative processing period" which may take up to 4 days to complete. With coaching and energy medicine, this period is for neurological reintegration, and with bodywork, this period is for physiological unwinding - these are both completely interwoven processes. There may be degrees of awareness/soreness with the body, and I recommend very gentle exercise, like walking or swimming.

Less than 20% of the time, there may be some symptoms associated with your processing, such as minor emotional irritability or fatigue. Occasionally, some people experience more uncomfortable symptoms such as headache or nausea. It always depends on the patterns you are clearing, and what's happening in all areas of your life. You can make the processing period easier by listening to your intuition, getting extra sleep, drinking a lot of pure water, avoiding overly stressful situations, and by increasing your self-care.

Some clients may feel subtle or dramatic changes right away, while others may need to receive additional sessions before shifts take place. Each person is unique with varied life experiences, so the pace of healing is not exact or predictable. Consider the image of dropping a pebble into a pond. The waves ripple out from the centre point over the entire surface of the pond. Healing energetic, neurological and physiological patterns creates ripples throughout your whole being.

Your course of action depends upon the goals and/or the issues you are addressing. Ultimately, personal health and well-being are your responsibility. I focus on creating safe spaces, coaching, energy medicine and/or intuitive bodywork sessions to assist you in clearing your negative patterns as quickly as possible, and then supporting you in following through with your strategic action plan or inspired action steps.

Agape - What does it mean?

The Greek word, agápē (pronounced uh-GAH-pay), is a Greco-Christian term referring to unconditional love, the highest form of love or charity. Within a therapeutic context, agape is the intentional response to promote well-being when confronted by that which generates ill-being.

How do you do a virtual session?

Have you ever been thinking about someone, and they then call you out of the blue? This is a common example showing how we're all energetically connected. During virtual sessions, I use intention for clearly tapping into a connection that's already present.

What is muscle testing? Why do you use a pendulum?

Some experts think the conscious mind only makes up about 0.1% of your intelligence. The other 99.9% is the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind archives everything we receive at conception from our lineages, as well as everything we experience from conception forward in life. It's like a binary computer and can be asked “yes” or “no” questions.

Muscle testing determines answers from the unconscious mind by the physical response to things that are true or false. To illustrate, telling a lie creates a weak muscle test, whereas speaking the truth creates a strong muscle test. It's really that simple.

Using a pendulum instead of muscle testing is something that’s easier on my hands. Specifically, I connect energetically to you and then ask the pendulum to swing in a direction that indicates a “yes” or the equivalent of a strong muscle test. Then I ask to be shown the swing direction that indicates the opposite.

What is your educational background?

Education and Training

I have an undergraduate degree in kinesiology and was a registered massage therapist from 1994 until 2018. In addition, my training includes-Practitioner training in the Emotion Code™, the Body Code™ System, Quantum Release, Root Cause, and Somatic Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Reiki 1 & 2; Facilitator training in PSYCH-K® (Basic, Master, and Advanced levels), plus a variety of other Energy Medicine modalities that use muscle testing; Student associate practitioner - Ortho-Bionomy Association of Canada (OBAC).

What kind of coaching do you do?

Coaching Overview

Coaching creates a repeatable, tangible, sustainable difference in the lives of people and it is NOT therapy. Therapy is necessary for individuals who cannot progress because of significant neglect, abuse, and/or trauma. Coaching focuses on moving from functional states towards optimal performance in any chosen area of life. Whether that is through Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), which is how our the brain works to create labels that either help us get the results we want or not; Root Cause Coaching (RCC) which is how our thoughts affect our emotion and our behaviors until we get down to the core thoughts, emotions, and behaviors; International Coaching Federation (ICF) which is the structured process of coaching by setting an agenda, asking empowering questions, listening, and having a structure of ethics; Somatic Coaching which is how to go inside the body and gain the wisdom stored inside the body; or Energy Medicine, which is working with energy and the unconscious mind in order to shift the repressed emotions embedded at a cellular and unconscious level.

My coaching philosophy is that you:

  • Have the answers inside of yourself.
  • Are the expert about your own life.
  • Have the resources available or a creative way to get them.
  • Are whole and complete.

What is energy medicine?

Energy Medicine Overview

The physical body and the aura surrounding it is pure energy and, given the right conditions, has an incredible ability to heal itself. Negative energies can become stuck or trapped because of any sort of life experience. If they remain stuck, over time they can impair physical function and contribute to stress, trauma, sickness and even disease. In fact, most people live somewhere on a spectrum in this kind of state, suffering from it, but the good news is that this process is often reversible. Releasing energetic imbalances is a powerful way to restore health to the body, by simply making the conditions right for it to re-balance itself. I use Reiki, applied kinesiology with muscle testing and/or a pendulum.

What is intuitive bodywork?

Intuitive Bodywork Overview

My prior career as a massage therapist facilitated a great deal of training in a lot of bodywork modalities, which are used when muscle testing or a pendulum shows the modality is highly beneficial. The main modalities in which intuitive bodywork sessions are partly based upon includes Body Scan, Fascial Release, Swedish Massage, Ortho-Bionomy, Trigger Point Release and Visceral Manipulation.

Am I doing therapy with you?

The short answer is no, as I'm not a registered medical or mental health professional. The coaching, energy medicine and/or intuitive bodywork sessions provided are a co-creative experience where we tap into your body's inherent healing wisdom. If you are currently receiving therapy, we will need to have your mental health professional give you the green light to receive our coaching services.

Is it okay to see other practitioners while I'm seeing you?

Yes - I strongly encourage you to stay connected with all your traditional and alternative health practitioners when you're receiving any sort of sessions at Agape Therapeutic.

Are you diagnosing or prescribing?

There is no diagnosing or prescribing with the services offered at Agape Therapeutic Health Services as I am not a registered medical or mental health professional. I do encourage you to remain connected with all your traditional and alternative health practitioners.

Do I need to take my clothes off to receive bodywork?

This will depend upon what shows up with muscle or pendulum testing. If your body wishes to receive Ortho-Bionomy them you're fully clothed. If your body wants visceral manipulation or a Swedish-style massage, then you're taking at least some of your clothes off. You are draped appropriately with a top sheet, and we work together to ensure your comfort.

How do you protect my privacy?

I live and work in Vancouver Canada, and I'm subject to the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). PIPA is a Province of British Columbia legislative act and the GDPR is a regulation in EU law. Both are concerned with data protection and privacy of personal information of clients, prospects, or employees. I securely store your personal health information and session notes on Canadian servers, and you can request the information to be erased at anytime.

He Has Kept Me Going

I've been a client of Kent's since 2007. Over the years he has kept me going, allowing me to work as hard as I do. Most often my sessions are consisting of deep tissue work but at times I require the Body Code.

The Body Code was very helpful in my grieving the sudden loss of my brother. It's also helped me let go of other emotional issues from traumatic childhood events.

Kent listens and adapts his sessions to the specific needs of his clients. I've referred my friends and family to him with great results. I feel very fortunate to have found Kent as my intuitive bodywork practitioner and I'll follow him wherever he goes.

Dissolving What Stands in the Way

The Body Code is a remarkable modality. The best way of describing the Body Code is that it uncovers what lies hidden beneath the surface of an issue. Issues may be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual in nature. The Body Code ends up dissolving what stands in the way of healing. Thus restoring balance to the whole being.

Kent's approach using the Body Code can be applied in so many different ways. It feels like there is no problem too big to tackle. Kent provides a welcoming and safe space allowing you to express your needs openly. I have experienced significant shifts by feeling heard and supported by Kent. I highly recommend Kent as a practitioner.

Heal My Childhood Traumas

I have been working with Kent over the past 9 years. Above all, Kent is enabling me to heal my childhood traumas and deep emotional pain. In short, he is intuitive, kind and powerful.
