A needed voice

The first episode I heard was about changing PTSD to PTSI. What a powerful and needed message. Thank you for sharing these stories. And then recently I heard the episode with the 97 yr old WW2 veteran demonstrating how PTSd/i can be healed. People need to hear this!!

Thank You

I began listening to this podcast episode after episode scoffing that CPTSD/PTSD could be healed. I’ve suffered from it for 45 years. After two sessions of RTM, I have my life back. Thank you for what you do! If you have PTSD whether military or civilian- try it. What do you have to lose except trauma! 👍🏻
