Mission Statement
We are an apostolic business that equips professional practitioners in the body of Christ to offer Trauma Gates™ Therapy to people suffering from the somatic effects of trauma. Through this faith-based service, our practitioners provide an opportunity in the presence of Jehovah Rapha, God our healer to guide the clients through a process of gently releasing trauma from the cellular memory and developing new neuropathways of connection. In an atmosphere of love, peace, and safety, integration happens between the mind, body, and spirit. The outcome is a renewed sense of identity of themselves, feelings of powerfulness, connection and freedom.

What is Trauma Gates?
Trauma Gates™ is an advanced form of bodywork that is called somatic trauma therapy. It is an experience of “BEING” in the presence of God the healer, Jehovah Rapha, and applying science-based techniques for connection, resiliency, and self-regulation to unwind the nervous system, allowing it to release trauma from the cellular memory of the body. By providing a protected, safe environment to connect with memories and pain from past traumatic events that are stuck in the body’s cells, the client unwinds and releases. As this happens a powerful “new experience” takes place in the present moment with emotions, sensational expressions, and movement of the body. Through the release of incomplete trauma cycles from past traumatic events the client can slowly and gently rebuild the connection between their mind, body, and spirit in the presence of peace.

Trauma is released from the cellular memory, new neuropathways are developed, and integration of the mind and body takes place without re-traumatizing the person. The focus is on “BEING” present and connecting to the body’s somatic response (sensations), not the cognitive memory and emotions of the trauma story. Through rebuilding what had been stolen and shattered from past events the client is empowered with a new sense of self that feels safe and free! Trauma Gates™ is performed in a series of ten sessions, once a week for ten weeks. Some clients may require more sessions depending on their level of trauma. The client remains fully clothed and has complete control of the process through choice, perception of safety, and boundary awareness.

It is Christian faith-based in principle. 
     •   Who is the healer?
     •   Who does God say we are?
     •   What is the body to God?
     •   What is our power and authority as followers of Christ?

God is our healer! We have the privilege to partner with Him helping to guide the client through the safe, gentle unwinding of the nervous system to release trauma that has been stuck in the cellular memory of the body. The body being the Temple of the Holy Spirit is allowed a “new experience” that is empowering and reverently protected by the Trauma Gates™ practitioner. Through awareness of sensational responses and freedom of movement, neuropathways of connection between the mind and body are developed. The client realizes their personal power, authority, and sense of self to bring their body into alignment with who God says they are.

 

Who are Trauma Gates Practitioners?
As Trauma Gates™ practitioners we are followers of Jesus Christ and know Him as Jehovah Rapha, God that heals. We understand our Identity and authority as believers in Him.  We have the privilege to invite Holy Spirit into the healing process to be our guide and to facilitate a safe space for our clients to begin to build connections and trust once again. We give our clients an opportunity to encounter Creator God and themselves, which brings healing to the mind, body, and spirit. We don’t proselytize.

Every practitioner holds a certification from their professional licensing board that allows them to touch. i.e.: doctor, nurse, physical therapist, chiropractor, massage therapist, psychotherapist.

Each professional brings unique experiences and gifts to the process. Practitioners will eventually develop their individualized niche and style of the Trauma Gates™ process. Often practitioners are drawn to healing work because of what they have overcome themselves.  Life experiences can lend much intuitive understanding and compassion to the process. It can also stir up suppressed emotions of their own. When this happens, it is strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity and seek inner healing with a professional. It is recommended that practitioners are seasoned in their field lending maturity and modeling a fruitful healing journey in their own life. Practice what you preach!

 

What does it look like for the client?
Ten consecutive weekly 1.5 hr. sessions with the client fully-clothed.

Trauma overwhelms the Autonomic Nervous System and its ability to regulate itself. The client will learn about their nervous system and how to identify when they are in a fight-or-flight-or freeze response. This is a “trigger” and a subconscious response to feeling threatened. Simple tools will be taught for self-regulation, resiliency, as well as boundary awareness.

In the process of the sessions, somatic sensational responses will occur opening a gateway to suppressed incomplete trauma cycles from the past.  The body will be given a place to release, thus completing the trauma cycle. This often happens with accompanying movement and/or emotions. Great care is taken to not retraumatize, keeping the process within the clients’ control where they feel safe and always have a choice.

At this point, a “new experience” has occurred, and new neuropathways are being developed for mind, body, and Spirit connection.
