PTSD research shows 61% decrease in stress after sessions.
Dr. Thomas Geracioti, MD, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, (2009)
directed 8 patients diagnosed with PTSD
to the PTSDSRESS.com program on their own personal computer. The self-reporting measurements displayed significant decreases in levels of stress as follows:
Treatment Results: Baseline (pre-session) pre-EYE MOVEMENT MEMORY PROCESSING session subjective units of distress averaged 7.44 +/- 0.44 [M+/-SEM], but post-session subjective units of distress fell to 2.87 +/- 0.63. (1-10 scale where 10 = maximum distress, 1 = minimum distress.)

"I was surprised to find out after I completed the session I felt calmer and more relaxed. The same thing happened after my second session. I recalled the same trauma both times and I'm still calmer about that trauma. Progress is a good thing."
(OIF Combat Veteran with PTSD and TBI)
"A big deal"
"It ended with me feeling less pissed then normal about what happened and that is still the case weeks later. That might not sound like a big deal, but it is."

(James M., New Mexico)

"I was able to let go and move on."
"There are several events from my past that continued to cause me pain and distress. I couldn’t seem to let the past go, and what it was doing to me wasn’t pretty. After two sessions on your site, I was able to let go and move on."
(David F., Minnesota)
