Holographic Memory Resolution is a technique that helps you locate, access, reframe, and release negative memories being stored in the body, without needing to relive them.
Developed by Brent Baum, a licensed addictions counselor who has now treated over 20,000 trauma survivors including personnel and survivors from 9/11, the Oklahoma City Bombing, and TWA Flight 800, Holographic Memory Resolution helps you to emotionally reframe past events, helping you to remove emotional triggers, release trauma, and unravel the emotional causes behind things such as:
- Autoimmune Disorders
- Eating Disorders
- Behavioral Disorders
- Dissociative Identity Disorder
- Chronic Pain
Stored memories can play another role in your life. In fact, your relationships (or lack thereof), your finances, or any other challenges you have can be a direct result of your unresolved history. From that one comment a teacher made in 2nd grade, to feeling misunderstood by your family, to what your ex-partner did that one time — if the emotional charge goes unresolved your decisions and life circumstances can be fueled by these moments and create unwanted patterns.

Frequently Asked Questions
Holographic Memory Resolution. Yeah, it’s a mouth-full. The shortest way to explain it is like this:
HMR is a technique that helps you locate, access, reframe, and release negative memories being held in the body — without needing to relive them.
How do you find and access the memories?
HMR uses a verbal and energetic technique to help you locate and access the memories. The verbal technique is a series of simple questions that help you define the “trauma metaphor” or “icon of memory”. Once you locate the icon, there are two final questions that bring up the memory.
You can think of it like an icon on your computer’s desktop. When your body stores a memory, it reduces it to this little holographic piece and then stores it somewhere. The initial questions help you to become aware of the icon, and the final two questions are like the double-click of the mouse, providing access to the memory so it can be reframed and released.
The energy component helps you more easily find, see, and access both the icon of memory and the memory itself. To apply this, the facilitator places his hand on the C-7 spot of your spine — right where your spine and neck meet.
For some, this technique can be applied remotely via Skype or Zoom. An interview between the you and the facilitator must take place first to determine if this option is available.
How do I release the memories? // What do you mean by "reframe"?
Once you’ve accessed the memory, the facilitator will prompt you: “If the adult you could go back to change the scene, what would you like to see happen instead?” This starts the reframe, which overall is an “emotional reframe” of the scene. After creating the reframe, the facilitator shows you how to move the new emotional frequency through the area storing the memory and throughout your body. When this happens, the memory releases. This release begins immediately and can be felt by the client.
It is important to note that you are not changing the past — you don’t need to. You are simply changing the emotional charge you are holding from the event. These stored memories are a self-hypnotic state. Within the stored memory is a piece of you that dissociated at the time. In moments of emotional or physical overwhelm, your consciousness freezes the scene and stores it in the body a millisecond before the overwhelm hits. The emotional reframe technique releases the charge from this stored scene and essentially de-hypnotizes that piece of your subconscious, cutting ties with the event so you are fully present now. You are in this moment now, not in the moment of the past. HMR helps your subconscious to realize this so you stop experiencing the emotional or physical pain from the event.
