Website Disclaimer

Welcome to the HaveningLouisville.com website where Havening Louisville offers events, training, and educational products featuring the Havening Techniques® (“Havening”). This Disclaimer contains important information to share with you and for you to understand.  Please be advised of the following:

The information contained on this website, including ideas, suggestions, techniques, methods, videos, articles, classes, trainings, books, products, resources, and other materials is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice or treatment.


You understand by viewing this website you will be introduced to Havening, an innovative healing approach developed and created by Ronald Ruden, MD, PhD in collaboration with his brother Steven Ruden, DDS. Havening can be described as a type of psycho-sensory modality based on the fields of neuroscience and neurobiology which uses sensory input in order to alter thought, mood, and behavior. It is believed that when an event or experience is perceived as traumatic or stressful, it becomes immutably encoded in the psyche and the body, often with life altering consequences. Havening is designed to make changes in the brain in order to de-traumatize and remove from both the psyche and the body the emotional memory of a traumatic or stressful life event and its negative effects. Therefore, Havening is a healing modality that is designed to help individuals overcome problems that are the consequence of traumatic or stressful encoding. Havening is comprised of protocols which includes human touch as a therapeutic tool identified as Havening Touch®.

Havening has three (3) distinct applications, one is for emotional disturbances, second is for wellness, stress management, and peak performance, and the third is as a self-help tool. Therefore, Havening can be used within a psycho-therapeutic setting with licensed mental health care clinicians that have been fully trained and certified in Havening. In addition, Havening can be used by allied health care professionals and by non-licensed practitioners who have been fully trained and certified in Havening. Havening can also be used as a self-help technique and shared with family members and friends.

By visiting this website you will have the opportunity to enroll in Havening training events, including an Introduction to the Havening Techniques® Workshop and the Accredited 3 Day Training in the Havening Techniques®. In addition to offering these events to the general public, you understand the Accredited 3 Day Training in the Havening Techniques® is also part of the Havening Techniques® Practitioner Certification Program (the “Program”). If you are healing arts practitioner, Havening Louisville invites you to consider becoming a Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioner which will grant you the right to identify and represent yourself as a Havening Techniques® Practitioner. Because “Havening Techniques” and “Havening Touch” are registered trademarks owned by Ronald Ruden, MD, PhD, they can only be used with permission. Therefore, you cannot legally use the trademarks, or any derivatives thereof, in any advertisement (website) or represent in any manner you use the Havening Techniques® unless you are certified by the Havening Center for Research & Training, Inc.


Although Havening appears to have promising emotional, mental, and physical health benefits, Havening has yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, Havening is considered experimental and the extent of its effectiveness, as well as its risks and benefits, are not fully known. Havening is self-regulated and no state in the United States licenses practitioners of the Havening Techniques® and considers them to be alternative or complementary healing methods.
