Regression, simply, is an exercise in remembering. Our unconscious mind stores everything we have ever sensed. It is associated with the right side of the brain (the intuitive side of us) and works on a 'stacking-system'. That's why we sometimes repeat things to ourselves often, consciously, to help us to keep them at the top-of-the-list for easier recall from memory.
Regression back by a few days, or weeks, months, even years - can clarify facts.
