Welcome to
Rocky Mountain Brainspotting Institute (RMBI)

RMBI Logo

The Rocky Mountain Brainspotting Institute (RMBI) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that was created to promote and advance the use of Brainspotting, an emerging new treatment in psychotherapy. We are a professional association of psychotherapists who use Brainspotting in our practices. Brainspotting (BSP) uses a Mind/Body approach to psychotherapy that evolved from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and the Somatic Experiencing (SE) Traditions. Upsetting memories are stored deep within the brain and the body.  BSP helps to release these stressors because it works from the deeper level of the autonomic nervous system and within the limbic system in the brain. Brainspotting is an effective and efficient healing modality that can be used with children, adolescents and adults and has been beneficial with all types of performance work and spiritual development. Read More or listen to this podcast from Heartseed Health in which Thad Frye, LCSW and RMBI Board Member explains how Brainspotting works, the relationship between Brainspotting and the body, and what kinds of conditions Brainspotting has been proven to be effective in treating.
