What is Limbic Hacking?

Limbic Hacking is considered a Coaching Service as it requires the client and Parnisia to work together focused on resetting the brain link to the body, decrease pain and increase capacity. This is done by decoding negative emotions, events, conditions, and past regrets through a series of assessments, holistic bodywork, exercises, affirmations, meditations, mindfulness techniques and more. Limbic Hacking can connect the mind, body, spirit, and soul in ways most people will never experience in their lifetime.
