Writing Is Therapy!
Did you know that dopamine, a chemical in the brain that controls emotions, releases in huge amounts when you are writing? Did you know writing could be not only cathartic psychologically, but also physiologically? We are on a hunt to discover the secrets behind cathartic writing. There is a loose term called “Expressive Writing Therapy” that exists, yes, but we dive deeper than that. This is a crash course in what we offer, how you can benefit from Expressive Writing.
Expressive writing is a concept termed, yes but it never truly tapped into the true nature of writing’s benefits on the human psyche. When you write, you are actually releasing chemicals in your synapses that cause the regeneration of neurons. Endorphins release, causing a “writer’s high.” So many things happen beyond our understanding, so why are we talking about this again?
The Caveman Effect
Ever wonder what is going on inside of the human brain? Ever consider that writing can regenerate neurons? We are working on a research methodology that will help explain the benefits of writing on the human brain and psyche. Physiologically, it has been semi-proven that writing a passage, a journal or a blog daily actually regenerates neurons. This is because writing has a primitive background. We needed to write to communicate with each other as cavemen.
We are working on a research study that will span over the next five to ten years, and we want you to be a part of it. We offer Expressive Writing therapy, which is a simple process: write and feel better. We will teach you how to methodologically write as a tool for therapy. We are partnering with Valiance Coaching to help!
Our Research Studies
Wait until you hear this. We are partnering with Florida International University’s Center For Writing Excellence department, which is our main hub. We are going to be throwing several workshops over the next several years that will teach you how to write for therapeutic effects. We also want to expand this into a massive research study, where we study the actual long-term effects of writing on the human psyche and physiology. There is no doubt that writing can relieve stress, but in order to conclude this, we need to research the “why” and the “how.”
This Already Exists
Expressive Writing is a new therapeutic technique, but there is very little research on the topic. We have done our due diligence and have researched this, only to find that very few services exist for writing as therapy. Yes, we all have heard of writing therapy, but what is it? Why is it important? We hope to find a way to make this a unique experience, and we need your help!

We are going to be hosting several workshops over the next couple of months with the help of Florida International University’s Center For Writing Excellence department.
