How does iRest resolve trauma?

iRest is an evidence-based form of guided meditation that has been shown to resolve symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The simple steps of iRest (which have been tested in clinical trials) calm the nervous system, release stress, increase resiliency and restore a sense of balance and control.

iRest is easy to learn and can be practiced by anyone. Even short practices of 10 or 20 minutes can bring about a sense of calm and ease and the ability to face difficult or stressful situations.

There are currently iRest programs in active duty military and VA hospitals and clinics across the United States, as well as in correctional facilities, hospices, homeless shelters, clinics and schools around the globe. Based on current studies with iRest in the military, the Defense Centers of Excllence has approved iRest as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine warranting continuing research for its use in the treatment of PTSD.
