What is Trauma Gates™?

Trauma Gates™ is an advanced, faith based, somatic therapy training for professional healthcare providers or approved individuals within healing ministry programs. It is science-based, using a series of proven Autonomic Nervous System regulation techniques.  By providing a safe environment to connect with their “somatic self” the client unwinds releasing trauma from the cellular memory, new neural pathways are developed, and integration of the mind, body, and Spirit takes place without retraumatizing the person. The focus is on the body’s somatic response, the sensations, not the cognitive memory and emotions of the trauma story. 
Rebuilding what had been shattered from past traumatic events, the client is empowered with revenant awareness of the body and a new sense of identity 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.
Trauma Gates™ is Christian faith-based in principle.

  • Who is the healer?

  • What is our power and authority as followers of Christ?

  • Who does God say we are?

  • What is the body to God?

God our healer, Jehovah Rapha – As practitioners, we invite and host the holy presence of God with every session. We submit to the leadership of the Holy Spirit, within us as we help guide clients through a gentle unwinding of their nervous system. As the client navigates this experience of connection with their “somatic self”, trauma that has been stuck in the subconscious, cellular memory of the body begins to release. Through a “new experience” safety and choice, new neural pathways of connection are developed. The client realizes their personal power, authority, and sense of self while integrating their body into alignment with who God says they are and the design of heaven!

Who are Trauma Gates Practitioners?

As Trauma Gates™ practitioners are followers of Jesus Christ and know Him as the only son of God, Lord, and Savior. We understand our Identity and authority as followers in Him.  We have the privilege to invite the Holy Spirit into the healing process to be our guide and to provide a safe space for our clients to build connections and trust 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.

Mountain Path
Some of my God-given talents and giftings were buried in past years due to unhealthy boundaries with myself and others. Once I went through a series of T.G. sessions with Anna, as well as the training, I was then able to act in line with my abilities and step into my calling as a T.G. practitioner and a Mental Health Counselor.    
Anna met all my expectations as a trainer and support facilitator. She provided an abundance of training material and communication, as well as patience, consistency, and encouragement throughout the whole process. Her passion and enthusiasm for Trauma Gates showed me that she genuinely cared about my success in becoming a T.G. practitioner.
One of my clients stated that Trauma Gates therapy enabled her to let down walls with her counselor which allowed major emotional breakthroughs and change in her relationships. She also stated that she had a new relationship with her body and finally felt at home within her body.

What does it look like for the client?

All people are included and need not have a spiritual practice or faith walk. We do not proselytize.

It is not a traditional massage as no touch is necessary if the client chooses.

It is not cognitive behavioral talk therapy. You are not required to retell your trauma story.
Ten consecutive weekly 1.5 hr. sessions with the client fully clothed.

The client will learn about their nervous system and how to identify when they are in a “triggered,” fight-or-flight, or freeze- or fawn response. Simple tools will be taught for self-regulation, resiliency, and boundary awareness.
In the process of the sessions, the body will be given a gateway to release, thus completing the trauma cycle. This often happens with accompanying movement and/or emotions. Integration of the body and mind happens through the "shift" into a new experience.

Great care is taken to not re-traumatize keeping the process within the clients’ control where they feel safe and always have a choice.
