I've used Pstec basic and I find it very effective-although I've only used it 2 or 3 times. I must say that Cascade Release really resonates with me and I'd like to develop that process. I'm a self help guy and I was thinking of using the click only CD. My question; is it necessary to be verbally guided thru the exercise or can I mentally/silently direct the process as I have some variations on the time frame?. Would appreciate any feedback.

Hello Steve I've been experimenting with Cascade Release too and have come to really value it as an addition to the PSTEC family.
As a therapist I use it by giving the instructions to the client myself while retaining eye contact. It creates a powerful dynamic as the physical gauge of their arm moves in response to the sub-conscious changes that are being made. Giving the instructions myself also means I can use the client's own phrases or key words and use appropriate emphasis to really individualise the process. Clients have found it to be an effective and even emotionally uplifting process as all that negativity is dumped into the rubbish bin of their mind.
I've used it successfully with physical issues such as eczema, physical issues attached social to anxiety such as excess sweating and even for food cravings.
When I use Cascade Release on myself, which I have done now quite a few times on different issues I simply use the audio click track with Tim's voice over giving instructions and that works perfectly.
So, Steve for self-helpers, I really recommend you follow this method. With Tim's instructions it means you can simply focus on the issue(s) you are working with and be able to check in and notice the changes in yourself that you feeling.
Good luck with your work. I truly think Cascade Release is an amazingly powerful technique. Regards SallyMarch 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm#22711Steve MoorePSTEC User
> Hi Sally, Thank you very much for your reply. I'll follow your advice until I”m proficient/confident enough to experiment. I consider myself fortunate to have found PSTEC and this community. Again, Thank you very much. Regards, SteveMarch 4, 2012 at 7:02 am#22712bjdutchPSTEC User
I have the cascade release audios as well and I was wondering how you do this on your own? I've listened to the tutorial but maybe I missed something. Do you just hold your hand up the whole time. Tim says the arm should move down slowly but would this be very tiring?
Again I more than likely missed something as my earphones are broken, flicking off and on. I will be getting new ones in a few days excited to try cascade release for myself!

Well the ear phone replacement is a definate You may have certainly missed some key info, so let me try to help you out here.
Tim provides two versions of the audio tracks, one without his voice-over and one with his voice talking you through the process.
So, as a self-helper just choose a time when you have some peace and privacy and listen through head phones to the tracks with his voice-over instructions. Tim explains the process in a very straight forward way, just as his voice over does on the PSTEC Therapy System FREE tracks.
He will prompt you to raise your arm to shoulder height straight out in front of you and yes it can feel tiring as you slowly lower your arm back down to your lap, or where ever it lands, but it is all part of this fantastic process.
If you note the audio length it's less than 10 minutes so is do-able I hope by most people. Also the sense of lightness and release is tangiable and well worth any slight physical effort to achieve this.
Do try this on your own if you feel able. You could even clear doubts and fears about being able to work with the Cascade Release with the free click tracks first.
If you get really stuck look for a therapist trained to PSTEC Advance Level in your locality or one who is experienced working with PSTEC via skype. It really wouldn't take long to release a whole heap of associated issues.
I hope it goes well for you. Regards SallyMarch 5, 2012 at 5:46 am#22714bjdutchPSTEC User
I will be sure to get new earphones and go over the tutorial once again. Thanks for the advice and cant wait to try this new technique for myself and see how it compares to the normal click tracks!

I wasn't sure whether to start a new topic, but I stumbled across this post whilst searching the subject 'sweating' and found that Sally has experience in successfully treating excessive sweating relating to social anxiety with cascade release. I have quite a few issues that I am trying to work through, many of which relate to social anxiety and an underlying belief that I am 'not good enough' in various ways. I've been trying to use the click tracks, accelerators as well as PSTEC positive and have encountered some challenges along the way. I have had some very helpful input from Tim on these issues via a couple of private sessions, and I'm not going to give up on the click tracks, but I'm also keen to try cascade release to see if that can help me at all. I was wondering whether Sally (or anyone else) might be able to give me any pointers on how I might be able to use cascade release on sweating and blushing related to social anxiety. Would I try and address the sweating and/or blushing using cascade release for each issue separately? Or do I try and use it for the social anxiety more generally, if that makes sense?
Many thanks in advance for your help.

Working with cascade release for sweating and blushing is an highly feasible way forward. With your conscious mind during the process concentrate on recalling as many incidents, memories or events where you have experienced these forms of social anxiety. Really conjure up those memories, events or conclusions you've experienced as if you are there again, experiencing them once more. Really focus on those negative feelings throughout the process. If you were to rate those uncomfortable feelings where would they be on a scale of zero to ten with ten being the most uncomfortable. Get the number really high, to a ten then focus some more – get those negative feelings upto a 12 and then begin the cascade release. All the time your conscious mind is recalling as many memories, events and conclusions you've made about yourself your sub-conscious mind remembers every single incident perfectly. You'll be amazed at what pops into your head. Run the cascade release and follow Tim's instructions you should feel many times lighter and more relaxed afterwards. Remember it's a two part process so don't forget to put everything you've recalled into the rubbish bin in your mind so that none of those events or memories can trigger you as they used to.
To really be able to conjure those feelings as fully as possible I often use EFT first btw. This allows you to recal and connect with the emotions you're going to clear.
Good luck with your work. Regards SallyMay 21, 2014 at 4:03 pm#22717KatyPSTEC User
Thanks a lot for your help with this – I'll let you know how I get on! Can I ask whether your client with excessive sweating was able to actually reduce or eliminate their sweating, or was it more that the sweating no longer bothered them?
