You know how it feels to…
…be exhausted no matter how much rest you get?
…be stuck with re-occurring pain, health symptoms and issues?
…get so stressed by almost everything?
…be low and upset much of the time?
…want a better life and health but just can’t find anything that works?
If that’s you, then the Lightning Process could just be the answer you’re looking for.
What is The Lightning Process?
The Phil Parker Lightning Process® (LP) is a training course that focuses on the science behind how the brain and body interact; it gives you powerful tools to use this brain-body link to influence your health and life. The tools involve gentle movement, visualisation and mental exercises.
With practice you can use them to change the way your nervous system works, switching on pathways which promote health and switching off ones which aren’t so good for you.
What if you could learn to reset your body’s health systems back to normal by using the well researched connection that exists between the brain and body?
Watch this 1 minute video that explains the LP in a easily understandable way…
Physical Emergency Response (PER) and Allostatic Load
The PER is the flight or fight response – it’s our body’s natural reaction to any threat and provides amazing bursts of strength and speed, changing our body’s hormones and fuel usage and so on – and is ideal for escaping a tiger in the wild – this ability to manage our body’s system depending on what we need is called Allostasis. The PER is generally a good thing, but it’s really designed to be activated only for very short periods of time.
Unfortunately, the ‘threats’ we find ourselves under, such as illness, chronic infections, pollution, relationships, jobs, exams or paying the mortgage, tend to last for longer periods of time. And research shows that long-term activation of these changes as a result of the PER is really bad for us – creating havoc with our sleep, healing and immune system, digestion, clear thinking and general mood – this is called Allostatic Load and has been shown to be linked to chronic illness, including heart disease, abdominal obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.
Reducing allostatic load is considered to vital for improving chronic health conditions. The Lightning Process does this by teaching you how to spot when the PER is happening and how you can calm this response down, allowing your body to re-balance itself.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s amazing ability to rapidly change just by being used differently. Research has shown that simply by using new ways of thinking, old nerve pathways are switched off and replaced by new, more useful, pathways. Watch this brief video to see it in action.
The Lightning Process will teach you how to use Neuroplasticity to break out of any destructive unconscious patterns that are keeping you stuck, and learn to use new, life and health enhancing ones instead.

The seminar itself is an interactive teaching experience, run in an informal, discussion, class-room style. It is run over the course of three, consecutive, half-days and attended by a few other people with similar issues (often along with parents/carers). There is also the option to take the training as a 1:1. The seminar is led by me and I am a trained Lightning Process practitioner, using a coaching style that encourages self-reflection whilst being caring and compassionate.
A number of key concepts are explained, discussed and practiced within the seminar; all of which are designed to encourage an understanding of how we can use the brain to make changes to our body’s level of health. These topics include; how important the words we use are in activating brain pathways; how movement can change brain activation and health; how to develop a supportive internal dialogue.
The practical teaching elements include mental rehearsal techniques, the use of simple postural exercises, movements and gestures (including a ‘stop’ process to interrupt unhelpful pathways) and self-coaching tools that help to steer the brain towards pathways that stimulate better physiology and recovery.
Each day some simple homework is given, including self-devised goal setting, that helps put the tools into practice and ensures the main teaching points have been understood. On day 2 and 3 some time is spent reflecting on successes and any issues when using the tools outside of the seminar (this is why its run over 3 consecutive days).
