My mission is to change the way trauma is treated in Israel and abroad, reducing unnecessary suffering caused by wrong conception of the essence of trauma, which leads to inefficient treatments.
It breaks my heart to know that people are still suffering for years and years from PTSD, panic attacks, insomnia, chronic pain, depression, etc.
Because I know there is a solution.
I will know my mission is successful only after the trauma symptoms are interpreted as lack of balance in the autonomic nervous system. The cause of the symptoms is "psychological".
Trauma is in the body.
And most importantly, the symptoms can be cured relatively quickly and efficiently.
This is what I am here for. Thank you.
This body-mind method was developed by Dr. Peter Levine, internationally well-known Doctor in Biophysical Medicine and Psychology.
This method treats with great efficiency physical, mental, emotional and behavioral symptoms derived from chronic stress or traumatic incidents (road accidents, medical procedure, assault). Symptoms of trauma or chronic stress may include: insomnia, flashbacks, chronic pain, feelings of helplessness, psychosomatic symptoms (non-derived from medical issues), difficulty interacting with people and depression.
This method was developed by observing animals (mammals) in nature. This led to understanding that although animals are in a continual danger, they barely present traumatic symptoms. It also revealed born mechanisms of regulation and release of "stuck" energy in the nervous system, mechanisms existent not only in animals but also in humans. The method teaches us to identify bothersome sensations related to a traumatic incident and how to slowly and gradually release this energy which is "stuck" in the body. The release of this energy helps the patient recuperate the physical and mental equilibrium and put an end to the suffering caused by circumstances out of his control.
SE™ therapy is greatly efficient and often alleviates the patient's symptoms even after the first session. Another advantage of this method is that the patient quickly learns how to restore ones own balance to the nervous system by himself, without the need of an external assistant.
