Millions of Americans suffer from PTSD. The new RTM treatment protocol can change their lives. Over 90% of the veterans in the first two research studies who received the RTM treatment had complete cessation of nightmares, flashbacks, and the emotional problems related to their traumatic memories. Here are some of their stories.
Post Treatment Testimonials
Client 4028- scores on PCL-M (see more on PCL-M here) went from 74(intake) to 20 (2 wk) to 19 (6 mo) to 17 (1 yr). PSSI scores went from 44(intake) to 3 (2 wk) to 2 (6 mo) to 0 (1 yr). Observe how these low scores have been maintained for 365 + days.
Here is what Client 4028 had to say at 1 year check in: "The trauma events no longer interfere in my life anymore. They are a non-issue. It blows my mind. It's like what happened? I am no longer triggered and no more nightmares that I was experiencing 3-4 times a week. I no longer have a sense of loss and tragedy. Now when I contact vets from my unit in Iraq it is not out of sadness but out of caring for my team mates. Since the treatment everything has changed in my personal and work life. I am no longer preoccupied with keeping my emotions at bay. Before I was afraid to even touch that box without worry that a bomb was about to go off. This created a lot of avoidance as things were just too sensitive. This kept me from getting to know people. Now I am more open including with my close relationship (husband). Before I felt I had to keep certain parts of myself off limits as it was easier and cleaner to keep it all inside and I did not want to burden someone else as they may not understand. I thank you everyday."

“I can speak about the events without anxiety, in detail, without fear. I’m sleeping through the night now. I am not as focused on the past. I have more self-confidence, more self-esteem. My doctor is taking me off lithium because my mood is more stable. It was valuable to do the three treatment sessions because my life now feels worthwhile.”
1/4/16. Client 4004, Age 22, Gang Rape
“I have been more willing to go out. I am more comfortable around others I do not know, and not on guard. My boyfriend says I look happier and calmer. I feel more relaxed and happy. I am sleeping throughout the night. Now during conversations I am present instead of wandering off mentally.”
1/25/16. Client 4003, Age 28, Two Rape Events
“I have more better days more often as well as being myself. I have been more outgoing at home. My husband says, “Who are you? I like this.” I laugh and have fun. I am the complete opposite of depressed. I am now allowing myself to go to public places more often. I am more aware and confident of what my abilities are. I am getting things done. I am less dependent on my husband and can go and do without waiting on him to come with me.”
