New PTSD Recovery Process

In my trauma recovery I tried a slew (technically I’m defining that as ten!) of trauma and PTSD treatments. Hoping to heal I dove headfirst into both traditional and alternative approaches to PTSD recovery. Some were successful and helped me move into a new phase of recovery, and others …. well, not so much. Some processes resonated with me while others made me just feel awful while I was doing them and then for days afterward.

In your ongoing quest to overcome PTSD I know you, like me, are also always looking for ways to get the job done. Even though my recovery is complete I still read up and listen to anyone who has ideas for how to make the process more effective, efficient and gentle. Recently I met a man who has some ideas about that. Tom Kavanaugh is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and the originator of the R.E.L.E.A.S.E. Technique, a protocol developed to release the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in war veterans, first responders, and trauma survivors.

This week on YOUR LIFE AFTER TRAUMA (Wed., 2pm EST) Tom Kavanaugh joins me to talk about how how the R.E.L.E.A.S.E. method works and how it may be helpful to you. PLUS: he’s agreed to give away a free session for our PROJECT GIVE BACK GIVEAWAY!

Until then, you can check out this testimonial from a combat vet:
