If you have ever experienced a traumatic experience, then you know that the mental component you suffer from a traumatic experience can last a lifetime, unless you work past it. Traumas come in all shapes and sizes and impact everyone differently. They can be as commonplace as a divorce or as unyielding a becoming the victim of a crime. A trauma does not have to be made public for it to create emotional turmoil.
Just as grief has many layers, so does the impact of a traumatic event. The impact can be emotional, physical, or both. It can also have “triggers” which bring back the traumatic experience as if it just happened all over again. The only way to truly move past a traumatic event is to work through it.
Traditional trauma therapy focuses on talk therapy. However, in many cases, talk therapy can only do so much. In fact, for many victims of a trauma, it is simply not the best path to healing. In an untraumatized individual, the nervous system can pendulate between states of activation and restoration. The two nervous system branches, sympathetic and parasympathetic, work together to maintain equilibrium. When the nervous system becomes dysregulated, it can no longer move between states of activation and restoration and becomes ‘stuck’ in a fight/flight/freeze response. Accordingly, Rewire Therapy understands trauma to be a response that disrupts the functioning of the body’s control center. Experts agree that traumatic experiences have an impact on the central nervous system, which engages and reengages when triggers happen.
Rewire Therapy is an online platform that offers a different approach to healing. Created by medical and integrative care professionals, Rewire focuses on healing the trauma-impacted nervous system. Members can expect guided neuroplasticity exercises, carefully designed by practitioners, as well as theory modules presented by experts in trauma treatment. The combination of theory and practical techniques empowers survivors with both the insight and the tools to support their healing journey.
“Survivors experience less frequent and intense emotional triggers after practicing Rewire Therapy’s exercises,” says Tanya Zajdel, a Psychiatric Nurse and the Co-Founder of Rewire Therapy. “In my own trauma healing journey, I discovered most therapists are not trained to recognize and work with a frazzled and burnt-out nervous system.” Zajdel created Rewire Therapy after searching the world to find solutions to heal herself. She quickly realized just how many people suffer traumatic experiences annually and became a voice for them.
Rewire offers clients a complete survivor’s toolkit, as well as cutting-edge classes, all of which are specifically designed to help survivors heal in approximately 10-20 minutes of practice per day. The program is both portable and accessible and includes a variety of modalities that are proven to engage the healing process. Science-backed and user-friendly, with industry best practices in place, the company has already made a difference for tens of thousands of survivors.
