Nerves and muscles work together in our body. Nerve impulses activate our muscles and make them move. When chronic stress reactions overload the nervous system there is a discharge of excess energy through involuntary movements in a form of nervous tics.

Based on the concept of Traditional Chinese Medicine that healing is facilitated by balancing the flow of vital energy, we use Muscle Response feedback (MRF) in the treatment of nervous tics.

This is a noninvasive method of evaluating body systems and organ energetic imbalances by getting direct feedback from the body. Based on the findings we use customized body-mind balancing interventions like tapping, light therapy, sound therapy and other energy sources to help your body return to its natural balance and health.

The Experience of Nervous Tics

Experiencing involuntary physical twitches and movements throughout the day without much control can make anyone feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in social situations. It can be distressing and it affect one’s sense of confidence.

While some people manage to suppress them for a short time, it usually takes a lot of concentration and it can be exhausting.

In fact, suppressing tics is like trying to suppress a sneeze that really wants to come out. Once it is released; most people feel a sense of relief afterwards.

Treating Nervous Tics Naturally

Research studies found a link between tics and the sympathetic nervous system (SNC) which controls the bodily reactions to emotions. Prolonged anxiety, stress and unresolved trauma can trigger over-activity of the sympathetic nervous system that just doesn’t turn off.

These triggers among other factors can cause ongoing involuntary muscle twitching.

There is a natural treatment called IPEC Therapy that helps clear nervous tics successfully by regulating overactive sympathetic nervous system reactions.

As a result there is a significant decrease of nervous tic symptoms associated with deep relaxation and in many cases they clear all together.

The Science Behind Tics

Most people don’t know that a nervous tic is actually a muscle spasm that goes through the emotional part of the brain before it makes the muscle move. Nerves and muscles work together in our body. Nerve impulses activate our muscles and make them move.

Tics are sudden, repetitive movements or sounds that are often hard for a person to control. They can happen in any part of the body, but they are most common on the eyelids or face. In the US 5% to 20% of children and adults, experience various kinds of nervous tics.

Our holistic therapy in Encino, CA can help you learn about and treat your tics.

When chronic stress reactions overload the nervous system there is a discharge of excess energy through involuntary movements in a form of nervous tics.

It’s important to understand how tics are categorized. There are two types of tics: motor tics, which are movements, and vocal tics, which are sounds.

Motor tics are then either simple or complex. A simple motor tic involves one movement, such as blinking or shrugging. A complex motor tic, however, involves multiple movements that are performed together and or in a particular order.

The cause of tics is currently unknown; however, things like stress, anxiety, and or sleep deprivation have been known to play a role in tic disorders.

Tic Disorders

There are three different types of tic disorders: provisional tic disorder, chronic motor or vocal tic disorder, and Tourette’s disorder.

People diagnosed with provisional tic disorder have had motor and or vocal tics for less than one year. Chronic motor or vocal tic disorders involve a patient who has been dealing with motor or vocal tics for at least a year or more.

Tourette’s, the tic disorder with the most severity, deals with both motor and vocal tics for one year or more. Determining which type of tic disorder you have will help you figure out the treatment plan that is best suitable for you.

For the most part, tics are minor and do little to no harm. However, if they worsen to the point where they begin to affect certain areas of your life such as your work or your relationships, then it is time to seek help. It is important for you to know that nervous tics are treatable and can be greatly reduced or cleared with natural treatment.
