A police officer walks into a dangerous situation to protect a civilian's family from home. He is confronted by a gun in his face. Shots were fired. The perpetrator died. This happened twice within 3 months. Since that day he has been suffering from PTSD which is now affecting his marriage ...his work ...his life. This is a true event from an actual client of Neurolease™.
This is his story... I’m a 45-yr. old male that suffers from primary PTSD and secondary depression. I have been a first responder for 12 years and have seen a lot of things that have remained in my thoughts. In addition, I was involved in 2 shootings within three months where both situations resulted in death of the other party. These situations have changed my life. I tried to deal with my issues without professional help and it almost destroyed my marriage and put me in a hole I would not have been able to get out of. Before going to my first Neurolease appointment, I was detached, emotionless, angry, hypervigilant and suffered from insomnia. I would experience anxiety whenever I went to the range to shoot. This was certainly not me and that’s when I knew I needed help. I was referred to Erin and Jakki. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this treatment, but I was desperate. And I will tell you that I’m glad I went.My first 2 sessions were very intense and exhausting. As much as I love to drive, I asked my wife to drive home afterwards. During the sessions I didn’t realize it and nor did I feel it, but my hands and feet were moving. Erin talked to me and forced my mind into uncomfortable thoughts. It was not what I wanted to do and I tried to self sooth by removing myself from the situation. Erin would then bring me back to these uncomfortable thoughts. Little did I know I was healing.By my 3rd session I could actually recognize what was bothering me and started to open myself up to figure out what my mind was trying to resolve. Jakki’s body work brought a sense of calmness during the session. I am not sure if I would have been able to handle the intensity without Jakki there. When I left the session, my wife and I stopped at a busy restaurant to grab food for our ride home. While waiting in line inside, I was talking to my wife, making eye contact and joking. That is when my wife realized that I was not as hypervigilant as I had been in public. Before this, if I went out with my wife I wouldn’t look at her nor would I really pay attention to her because I was paying more attention to my surroundings. When she pointed this out, I realized I wasn’t worried about who was around or who was coming in and out of the restaurant. I didn’t feel the transition, it just happened.By my 4th session I was able to answer some questions that my mind couldn’t resolve prior to this session. Overall I was feeling less hypervigilant and was not detached like I had been. I also felt more grounded. In addition, I was felt more emotional. This to me was a good indicator that I was connecting with myself. I was even able to sleep.I’ve had several other sessions and each one has gotten easier. Neurolease™ has been helpful in not only saving my life but also my marriage. I have since been sleeping better, eating better and exercising. I have less anxiety and I am more focused when going to the range to shoot. One of the other things I found helpful is that when I went through the process I did not have to talk very much. I just laid down and let Erin and Jakki work their magic. I have a clearer head now and I owe it to Neurolease™.
We are Neurolease™
- a cutting edge treatment for releasing toxic emotions. When a person endures a traumatic experience, their nervous system can become stuck in the fight, flight, freeze cycle. Their body remembers it as a function of survival.
Neurolease™ focuses on updating the neurological system to realize there is no present threat or action required. The body and mind become synchronized to its natural grounded state.We are asking for your support to bring in and help as many First Responders as we can.
This is our ongoing donation program. These funds will be applied to our first responder clients who are experiencing PTSD… Help us to help them.
Where? The treatments will take place at our office in Tampa FL. You can find us at Neurolease.com.
Why we are asking and offering donations? We need to take care of each other. We have lost our tribes. First responders are risking their lives on a daily basis to keep us safe. We owe it to them to help them cope and heal from traumatic experiences they encounter while protecting us.Criteria for this Neurolease™ Treatment Scholarship:
- The first responder will be verified to be actively employed or prior (fire, military, police).
- Participants will be provided up to 5 sessions paid in full through the GoFundMe scholarship, specific to job related stress / trauma. (Current value $2000-2500)
- We will not begin treatment without being able to guarantee up to 5 sessions covered in advance.
- The participant is required to contribute $25 each session into the GoFundMe account to go towards the next first responder. Why? Often times when one has a career in the helping field, they struggle to accept help themselves or to be in the role of the receiver of acts of generosity. To help bridge that gap and minimize any obstacles, we have implemented the $25 pay it forward policy. Looking into the future with Neurolease™:
We have clients from all over see us for therapy. The progress we are making is incredible. We hope to one day share our treatment plan with other therapists. We also recognize the opportunity we are presenting for industries to be merging: mental health and massage therapy. This treatment alone will improve one's sense of self-awareness.
