Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


Evidence mounts that people with trauma benefit from body-based therapies.  Bessel van der Kolk, a psychiatrist who is considered an authority on PTSD, sees engagement in a physical practice like yoga, tai chi, qigong or feldenkrais as a key element in his patient's recovery from and ability to transcend Post Traumatic Stress.

Bill has extensive experience working with trauma including providing physical therapy to people after spinal cord injury, brain injury and other severe trauma and knows how to create a safe space and agency for clients,  Rather than viewing PTSD as "dysfunction", he sees it as a natural response to trauma that you have gotten "stuck in".

Bill has studied how to combine psychotherapy and somatic work with MDMA for treating severe PTSD with Annie & Micheal Mithoefer as part of the MAPS training conducted by California Institute of Integral Studies program in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy & Research.

Bill Gallagher is a holistic physical therapist and is trauma aware and treats post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in New York City Housecalls.
