Personal Programs and

Professional Trainings

When life serves us stress, we can volley back…

Whether it’s everyday demands, chronic and ongoing challenges, or the impact of traumatic stress that you are facing, you can begin to flow with the currents of life instead of against them.

Learn how to support your nervous system from the inside out.

Reconnect with your innate resilience and build greater capacity for life’s challenges.

Whether you are interested in self-care or you are a professional looking to support your clients and bolster their healing capacity, the Nervous System RESET personal programs and Professional Trainings will help you access the skills and awareness to better negotiate the impacts of stress.

Personal RESET (for the General Public):

The Personal RESET is 6-session program that spans 3 months of private and ongoing learning and mentorship under Jessica’s guidance.  Nervous system regulation and re-education work is delicate and takes time to cultivate.  Pacing things this way allows you to integrate the information and to learn the somatic skills gradually and apply them regularly over time.  The goal of this program is to support you in making lasting, self-care changes that will help transform your life.

All sessions are conducted via video conference so they can be arranged from the comfort of your home or office, whichever you prefer.  All you need is a strong internet signal and a laptop or tablet with a camera.  This also allows Jessica to work with clients from any geographical region.

The cost for this program is $385 which includes the 6 sessions as well as a guidebook that you download and work with between your sessions.  Clients find this guidebook to be a helpful tool  in integrating their learning.

The Personal RESET can also be offered in a group format that works well for organizations wanting to bring effective self-care strategies into their workplace.  The group format combines an initial, in-person workshop blended with weekly individual video conference sessions to create a deep, experiential process.

For more information on group offerings, please contact Jessica directly.

Content covered in the program:

  • Basic physiology of the stress response
  • The body’s natural protection and recovery responses
  • Cultivating and tracking internal safety
  • Signs and indicators of activation and calming cycles in your stress response
  • Orienting exercises and tracking body sensations
  • Regulation skills and approaches
  • Working with the restorative tremor as a regulation tool
  • An understanding of the social nervous system and the vagus nerve
  • Building an individually-calibrated approach to self-practice so that you are able to continue supporting your nervous system after the series is over

Nervous System Know-How for Practitioners and Clinicians: Introduction to Nervous System RESET

Nervous System Know-How for Practitioners is the introductory, pre-requisite pathway that prepares professionals interested in pursuing the Professional Training Program (see details below).  This pre-requisite track has beed designed as a fully online, distance learning format allowing easy access for professionals regardless of their geographical location.  This program provides a theoretical and experiential overview of the Nervous System RESET process and consists of the following components:

  • 6 private video sessions with Jessica where you will learn the somatic practices that form the foundation of the RESET approach
  • a 6-Module, self-paced online course of study that covers the foundational theory, physiology, and neuroscience of stress and trauma
  • a 2-hour group video session to review core concepts prior to the commencement of the Professional Training program

All participants will receive with an overview of the comprehensive neurophysiology of stress and trauma, as well as an understanding of how to begin to cultivate a neurophysiology of safety within the body.  Participants will also receive an assortment of practical somatic skills for quieting the nervous system and promoting resilience.  Because additional learning, skills, and training are needed before one is ready to deliver this transformative approach, participants will not be able to use the Nervous System RESET process directly with clients without first completing the full Professional Training Program (see details below).

What People Are Saying. . .

  • I must share my profound and life changing experience of the Nervous System Reset program which is so simple yet so powerful on so many levels!!!! To name some of shifts I have seen: I am more in tune with my nervous system. I am more aware of what triggers me. I know how to practice simple tools and awareness in the moment to down regulate my nervous system. My stress levels are staying at a healthier and more balanced state. My body feels like it is running more optimally. I have more space to enjoy and appreciate all of of life. My recommendation to each and every person is to schedule with Jessica for her 6- session program.   It is the best gift you could give yourself or anyone you love.

    Laura Houston
  • Since working with Jessica and the RESET program I have found a greater sense of control, where I felt completely out-of-control before in regards to my nervous system response.  Previously when my anxiety would start to tick up, I felt as though I was being tumbled and overrun by the waves.  Now that I have learned how to read the signs of activation I have a box full of tools that I can utilize immediately, allowing me to ride the waves of panic, rather than to be a passive bystander.  This has been invaluable to me in that I now have much more self-compassion and can actively participate in my body and my life.  Jessica's guidance is gentle, kind, clear, and very supportive.  I highly recommend this program to anyone suffering from trauma, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, or really anyone with a nervous system.

    Monika K. LMT, Yoga and Somatic Movement Teacher
  • I reluctantly attended my first RESET session as part of a group and was very skeptical about what was going to happen, having spent the past 3 years running a gauntlet of therapies and medications trying to find something to relieve depression, anxiety and PTSD symptoms. I haven’t had a panic attack since the first week of using RESET techniques and am now off all medications and sleeping better. I’ve felt very supported throughout the experience and am most grateful for learning that my body was trying to heal naturally, but I wasn’t hearing it.  I learned how to listen to myself which has drastically changed my quality of life for the better.  I recommend RESET especially if traditional treatments haven’t clicked for you.

    MLR Consultant
  • As a psychiatrist I have been treating the wounds of trauma for many years, and I've received many diverse trainings based on the unified Body-Mind-Spirit model. The professional training I received from Jessica has proven itself to be extremely valuable to my understanding of the BodyMind and has advanced my skills as a clinician greatly. Jessica is a gifted teacher, and a remarkably thorough student of the many wisdom sources she has so well integrated into this very impressive training.  As someone treating PTSD I am pleased that this program offers a healing process that is adapted to each individual’s capacities, needs and limitations. This training which offers a body-focused program belongs at the front end of trauma treatment and will make clients’ participation in formal psychotherapy, when that is the natural next step, far more tolerable, effective and briefer. Any clinician seeking to deepen personal and professional knowledge and skills to deal with the myriad woundings that real life offers would be lucky to be trained by Jessica Schaffer.

    Charles E. Thompson, MD
  • Jessica Schaffer is one of the best teachers I’ve worked with. She brings a wide range of expertise and explains complex and challenging concepts in clear, simple language. Jessica is also deeply compassionate and supportive as you work your way over the learning curve. I’ve gained so much from working with her, and I highly recommend her.

    Charlie Glickman PhD
  • Learning from Jessica was a pleasure. She is highly educated, experienced, and passionate about what she does. Jessica offers her teaching through a lens of compassion, acceptance, and an attitude of openness. With respect to learning how to teach self regulation, I don't think I could have learned as well as I did from anyone else. I look forward to benefiting from Jessica's passion and knowledge again the future!

    Meg Gorosh Certified Yoga Instructor, Licensed Social Worker
  • Jessica Schaffer is a wonderfully insightful provider and trainer. She has a gentle, respectful and grounded presence that promotes healing for her clients. Her unique, integrated approach offers a knowing sense when it comes to working with people as she accounts for the whole: body, mind and nervous system. Her commitment to understanding the science behind the healing is apparent in her clinical work and when teaching clinicians. She is dedicated to emphasizing with both clients and practitioners the need to attune to the sense of comfort and safety within. In doing so she empowers individuals to internalize this experience and gain their own attunement and regulation within. As a psychotherapist I have learned so much from Jessica’s expertise in the body and nervous system as it relates to trauma. It is clear that working with clients to attune to their body and mind is a necessary and integral piece in laying the foundation for the path to healing. There is no question that knowledge and guidance from Jessica has made me a better provider on so many levels.

    Christa Hines LCSW, CADCII
  • Over the course of a year, I had the privilege of having Jessica as a teacher, guide, and mentor. From the instant I met her I was struck by her calming presence and open heart. I felt that she really understood me and cared about me. This immediately helped me feel at ease and open to learning new concepts. Learning from Jessica was easy because she is very clear, concise, smart, and engaging. She was able to meet the diverse learning needs of all the individuals in my cohort. I left each class with a deeper body of knowledge that could be immediately integrated in my career. I highly recommend Jessica as a teacher. Knowing her is a privilege. Learning from Jessica has deeply impacted my life which in turn has helped me to be a better therapist.

    Shanti O'Connor Licensed Counselor, Registered Yoga Instructor
  • In the 23 years I have been attending trainings and in my 44 years of life, I have never met someone like Jessica. Her ability to hold space for and keep safe a diverse group of people is absolutely beautiful.  Her compassionate and skillful way of communicating is awe inspiring. Her organization and time management are impeccable. The content of Jessica's training has forever changed both my personal and professional life. Her understanding of the nervous system and the human organism is deep and vast and the ease with which she presents complex concepts is a joy.  My newfound understanding of the nervous system has facilitated a whole new level of healing in my bodywork practice. My clients are amazed when they become aware of the subtleties of their nervous systems and their innate ability to come into balance. My own personal journey of healing has been profound with Jessica's guidance. I have so much respect for Jessica and I hold her as a mentor of the highest order.

    Kelley Curtis Licensed Massage Therapist
  • Jessica is an extraordinary trainer.  Her immense organizational skills, her commitment to excellence, her quick response to email and questions from students, her advocacy for her students, and her warmth and genuine caring all contribute to her fine work. In addition, her passion, openness, and continued curiosity about the method make her trainings very engaging.  Her enthusiasm is contagious!
