(Therapist), PT has been treating me with Reflexercise and the Associative Awareness Technique for approximately 5 months now and I want to rave about this form of treatment. It has been extraordinarily beneficial in every conceivable way.
I am a survivor of the Fort hood massacre and 34 years of military service, both active duty and Army Reserve, in addition to 4 deployments in time of war. AAT has made a significant difference in my life. I live with an undercurrent of anxiety that has now departed because of these techniques. I am trying very hard to convince some of my trauma patients, as) do specialize in the treatment of PTSD, to arrange to treat with (therapist) PT as the benefits have been unlimited and the potential for healing, infinite.
Thank you profusely for what you have taught (therapist). She has labored intensively to bring AAT and Reflexercise to the Dayton VAMC. It is my sincere hope that there are listening ears in the wings and that there is an avenue for these interventions to take hold in the VA medical system for the many thousands of returning forces that stand to reap tremendous benefits from these very powerful techniques. Of equal importance is the fact that they have no side effects and cannot be overprescribed in lethal amounts.
Thank you again for such enormous relief and recovery.
