Havening is Not Medical or Psychological Advice or Treatment and is Not a Substitute Therefor
The information contained on this website is solely for educational and general purposes and is not a substitute for medical or psychological care. The information contained on this website is not medical, psychological, coaching, bodywork, or other professional advice or treatment of any kind or nature whatsoever. Moreover, such information is not intended to and does not create any professional or treatment relationship of any kind between you and Westchester Lactation Services LLC or its respective principals, associates, employees, agents, representatives, consultants, and volunteers ("WLC"). Nothing contained on this website is intended to represent, or represents, that Havening is a substitute for seeking professional medical or psychological advice from an appropriate professional health care provider.

Never disregard professional medical or psychological advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this website. You are advised to seek professional advice as appropriate before making any health decision.
You understand that by viewing this website you will be introduced to the Havening Techniques® (“Havening”), which form an innovative, psychosensory tool based on current understanding in the fields of neuroscience and neurobiology. Developed by Ronald Ruden, MD, PhD, Havening uses sensory input in order to alter thought, mood, and behavior. It is believed that when you perceive an event or experience as traumatic or stressful, it becomes immutably encoded in your brain and body, often with life-altering consequences. Havening is designed to de-traumatize your nervous system by removing or altering the emotional memory of your traumatic or stressful life event and its negative effects. Therefore, Havening is a modality that is designed to help overcome problems caused by traumatic or stressful encoding, and it uses touch as a tool.
Havening is Experimental, Has Risks, and is Not Appropriate for Everyone
Although Havening appears to have promising emotional, mental, and physical health benefits, and although Havening was developed by a medical doctor, it is still important to understand that Havening has yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, Havening may be considered experimental, and the extent of its effectiveness, as well as its risks, are not fully known. Although it is self-regulated, Havening is not licensed in the United States. Rather, it is considered alternative or complementary to modalities that are licensed in the United States. If you have questions or concerns about Havening, please visit www.havening.org or contact Erica Charpentier for more information.
It is important to understand that Havening may not be suitable for certain individuals and may induce emotional and psychological discomfort or distress in some people.
