"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not an incurable, hopeless mental disorder. PTSD has physical roots. I hope you will join us in the years to come as we seek to eliminate PTSD from the trauma equation."
"I am grateful for the CranioSacral Therapy Intensives. I have personally been able to allow my trauma experiences to take their rightful place in my life. I no longer fear that they must be hidden or suppressed because they are a part of me. When the physical restrictions were released, the long-held emotional trauma surfaced. I am not alone. Most of us, or I dare say all of us, have some trauma, some more than others. I have experienced true compassion for myself and others, and now really enjoy being alive."
"I started having panic attacks when I was a child growing up in an environment with constant violence. CST has given me the opportunity to release these past traumas and create pathways in dealing with stress and perceived threats. PTSD is absolutely a disease of dis-connection in ourselves and with others. CST is the bridge back home to self."
"I was able to face the trauma and relive it without panicking and let it go from my body and not just my mind. It is so much more effective than all other therapy I have EVER had."
"I have received and practiced CranioSacral Therapy; however, this intensive program has given me new hopes for myself and other veterans. This is an awesome modality to help in the treatment of PTSD. It is natural, effective, and allows touch to improve one's ability to break down barriers to healthy relationships."
