What is Post-traumatic Stress Disorder?

PTSD occurs when a person has experienced a drastic and shocking event and has not (yet) processed it properly. Such an event can be, for example, a life-threatening situation, mistreatment or serious physical injury after an accident. This event then comes back again and again in your thoughts or dreams.

You may develop an acute stress disorder after a drastic event. This can be over within a few weeks, but it can also develop into PTSD. However, not everyone with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder initially experienced an acute stress disorder.

Thus, PTSD can affect anyone, at any age. It often interferes with daily life, making normal functioning in society difficult.

Our solution for PTSD

The connections in your brain get stuck. This causes physical and mental symptoms. We can measure this with a QEEG measurement. 

The brain is plastic. Your brain is perfectly capable of adapting. This is the power of the neurotraining of Move the Brain. You can optimize your brain by weakening stuck connections and stimulating new ones, so your brain performs better and you suffer less from all kinds of mental and physical symptoms. 

In our PTSD recovery program we work to restore your brain & body, in an intensive program with good guidance, exercises, measurements and training. 

Symptoms PTSD

The symptoms present may vary from person to person. Sometimes the symptoms  are related to anxiety, but they can also be linked to a person’s mood, such as anger or aggression. The various physical and psychological complaints can manifest themselves in, among other things:

  • Painful memories of the event that recur regularly / flashbacks

PTSD Recovery Program 10-day intensive training program

The 10-day recovery program is an intensive and extensive program that focuses on the recovery process of your body and brain. This program consists of three phases. Under the guidance of a multidisciplinary team, we work on restoring your body and brain, for a lasting and sustainable result. 

1. Preliminary phase
Every person is different. During the intake interview, we want to gain more insight into the nature of you. We do this on the basis of questionnaires and a functional assessment. Based on this, we draw up a suitable program, adapted to your complaints and symptoms. Based on this research, we provide an advisory report with our recommendations. After you agree to the training
program, we will also give you a week program a month before the program starts to prepare yourself as well as possible for the training on location.

2. Training Phase
The goal of Move the Brain’s training program is to help people overcome the debilitating symptoms of Post-Concussion
Syndrome, burnout and PTSD. We do this based on the philosophy that the whole body should be trained. We conduct extensive assessments, including brain mapping, to find factors in the brain and body that are preventing you from reaching your potential. Every aspect of the program provides a clear focus and essential training when it comes to holistically healing your body, mind and
brain. Using various tools, we monitor your progress in the program to improve the effectiveness of the various training components.

This program is personalized based on the advice drawn up during the intake, and specially developed for people with
a low energy level due to the fatigue symptoms that many of our participants experience. From personal experience we know exactly how to draw up a suitable program, which is adjusted where necessary on a personal level. Thanks to our
innovative methods, your body is stimulated to recover. In this way we ensure that you work towards an effective and lasting result. 
The program takes place every day between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM, after which you can have dinner and overnight in a
hotel nearby.

3. Return phase
The training program is certainly not over after this 10-day program. In the first month after the program we will
contact you weekly to discuss the recovery process. After a month you will return to the location for a number of measurements. We compare the results of this with the tests of the intake and at the start of the program. In the meantime, you will continue to work on your behavior and lifestyle using the tools and knowledge we have given you. Depending on your programm, we will
continue to coach you. In this way we hope to achieve an effective change without relapse. achieve change without relapse.
