Website Disclaimer 

Welcome to where Caryn Scotto d’ Luzia, as the single member of SOAR Global Institute, LLC, offers her services as a somatic and holistic facilitator to individuals and groups. 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 and accompanying blog (collectively “website”), including ideas, suggestions, techniques, social media postings, methods, articles, videos, publications, CDs, trainings, programs , events, and other materials, is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice.

By viewing this website you understand you will be introduced to an innovative non-medical/non-psychological approach created and developed by Caryn Scotto d’ Luzia called the AST Model of Holistic Shame Resolution® or AST Model® (the “AST Model”).  The AST Model is intended to facilitate shame resolution and resiliency through a body-oriented approach using neuro-biological principles. The premise of the AST Model is that by using nervous system logic to unlock stuck autonomic nervous system responses to shame and freeze states, it can expand an individual’s ability to be in touch with the sensory body in present time, allowing an individual to feel more resilience in the face of life’s challenges and more empowered.  The AST Model has two (2) distinct applications, one is for mental health conditions and the second is for stress management, overall wellness, and for personal growth and development. Consequently, the AST Model can be integrated within a psychotherapeutic setting with professional mental health care clinicians who have been fully trained in the AST Model.  In addition, the AST Model can be used by non-licensed practitioners, who have been fully trained in the AST Model, as a protocol in sessions for stress management, overall wellness, and personal growth and development.

Although the AST Model appears to have promising emotional, mental, neurobiological benefits whose byproducts may be psychological, and physical health benefits, it has yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities.  Therefore, the AST Model is considered experimental and the extent of its effectiveness, as well as its risks and benefits are not fully known. The AST Model is self-regulated and the State of California does not license any practitioners of the AST Model and considers it to be an alternative or complementary resolution and recovery model. While Caryn Scotto d’ Luzia is a certified Somatic Experiencing practitioner and somatic-based holistic facilitator and the developer of the AST Model, you understand she is not a psychologist, psychotherapist, physician, or other licensed health care provider and her services are not licensed by the State of California.
