Physical & mental violence – sexual exploitation

a traffic accident, the amputation of both legs

Dear Eliezer,

I started coming to you after a traffic accident that my husband and I were involved in nine months ago. I saw my husband was being seriously injured, and I was miraculously saved. I saw the strongest person I knew (who is also the person who means most to me) literally fall apart in front of me, and I then had to continue to deal with the consequences and a new life.

When I would walk in the street, any truck that was in the area, and it could have been distant, would make me shake uncontrollably and “freeze”; any car journey, slow as it may be, would leave me extremely tense.

I couldn’t really deal with my husband’s injury – the amputation of both legs –, and that was what I really wanted to take care of. It was providence that sent me to you, Eliezer. I must admit that I did not have great expectations for quick results yet I was enormously and pleasantly surprised.

I found a God fearing man who does extremely special work with a technique that seems to be very simple, but changes the world. After each treatment, I would leave rejuvenated and happy. The anxieties dissipated, the fear of trucks disappeared, and I accepted the situation with love; I am now able to continue to deal with what lies ahead with new strengths.

During the treatments, old matters that I had never dealt with came up, and these were dealt with most effectively and quickly.

I tell my story to everyone, wherever I am, and publicize my personal miracle and the Divine Providence that were my lot.

Thank you, Eliezer, and may God bless you.

 

 


Release from trauma to happy life

 

By the time I reached Jerusalem, I had reached the end of both my patience at how much pain I was in and my ideas of what to do about it. I had been through many different kinds of therapy and body work. I was even a licensed therapist and certified body worker myself. So I knew how to think about healing. But I could not heal my own body, at least not enough to feel at ease and comfortable.

Because I was having difficult learning Hebrew and knew that I had been diagnosed with an auditory processing disorder, I made an appointment with a speech therapist for an evaluation. She suggested that I find a neurolinguistic programmer and change some of the basic messages that I had been living with all my life. She said that I had some dyslexia with Hebrew but before I worked on that, I had to clear out some of the incorrect information that I was using to live my life with. I was given Eliezer’s name as someone who practiced neurolinguistic programming and called to interview him. I wanted to be sure I was working with the right person. I was on a fixed income and wanted what little money I had to go for the right treatment.

When I spoke to Eliezer, I knew I wanted to see what he could do for/with me. He first said he thought I did not need NLP work, that I needed to get the trauma out of my body and it was the trauma that was creating the pain. I had spent many years working with trauma survivors and what he said rang true to me. As long as the trauma remains in our bodies, we are not free to live the life we were meant to live. Free to live up to our true potential and creativity. I decided to make and appointment and see what would happen.

The method that we worked with (Tapas Accupressure Technique-TAT) is deceptively simple and easy to use. The theory is we have 12 energy centers that basically match our organ system. For example, there is a heart meridian, lung meridian, stomach meridian, etc. Each of those organs and consequently energy centers absorb unresolved trauma and create a negative reaction in our bodies. The more we hold on to the trauma, the more our bodies are filled with stress and tension. TAT engages the meridians, the seat of the body’s healthy reactions and replaces the traumatic messages with the most important information for the survivor, that the trauma happened long ago, is over and the person is now okay. But this is okay, not in the sense that there is no pain or reason to focus on the trauma but that the person is out of the trauma, is not still endanger because of it. But can feel themselves free from that situation and free to create a different kind of life based on the reality of what is happening right now, not what already happened in the past.

This was crucial information to me. It’s not that I had not known that concept before but no matter how many times I told myself that, I still felt like I was sitting or standing or lying in the middle of the trauma with no way to escape. But working with TAT, I found myself out of the trauma experience. Sometimes I was sitting alone in the room, sometimes dancing with myself or others, sometimes laughing and joking with people who had before been my tormenters.

For the first few sessions, I felt complete release. My body had never felt so good. I was relaxed, peace, had so much more energy, and was more social. People who saw me said I looked as though I had just woken up from a long nap and was refreshed.

But I would not be telling the whole story if I did not add this next piece. After the first 3 or 4 weeks, the work became harder and I was dragging myself through my past traumas with less ease. But and this is very important, with the same kind of equanimity that I had discovered during the first few sessions. I could feel more of the pain of the trauma but I felt it through a veil of healing. I knew it was leaving my body and I knew new layers of trauma were coming up but I was not reliving the trauma. Rather I was releasing the trauma and through that release, I was discovering different parts of myself that I did not know were there or rediscovering parts that I hadn’t had access to for many years.

Between sessions I tracked my progress. There was always some positive change even if I also had more memories or more experiences of different traumas than the one I was working on. But the positive changes didn’t leave even when something new was coming up. I maintained the work I did in the office and added to it both during the week and at the next session. I paid very close attention to what I was feeling, thinking, doing. How high my level of stress was. How much I wanted to be with people, or be alone. I tend to want to be alone so I paid attention to when that was intensified and when I was able to be more social.

The biggest piece of trauma that I worked on was a car accident that happened when I was five. I had three serious injuries and was incapacitated, in bed for 4 months. In doing this work, I connected pains in my head, leg, and shoulder and back with injuries I had received from this accident. Some of them were obvious but I had not connected them. Some were not obvious at all and I was stunned at how long I had been carrying this pain with me. As I focused my attention on each part of the trauma, my body released the trauma and breathed life into itself.

Besides the dimension of working with trauma that actually happened in my life, we also worked on the trauma that happened to my ancestors and to me in other gilgulim. I had done a lot of work about my family and my own past lives but this work got to the heart of the issues-how the traumas of my family affected them and also affected me through them.

There is one thing I would caution you about. It is crucial to be willing to change, to be willing to let go and have your life become more natural and comfortable. All of us can get used to the affects of the trauma and assume that a physical pain or emotional pattern will be with us always. The pain of the trauma has to be more severe than the fear of letting the trauma go. We have to be willing to go through some pain to let go of the pain. One of the wonderful things about TAT is that it does not require us to relive the trauma in order to heal. We may experience some discomfort and some

fear but it passes quickly and easily. TAT makes room in our bodies for the natural body/psychic rhythms to take over.

 


One year after my treatment sessions TAT

of my Physical and Mental Abuse

I started my treatments with Eliezer Spetter over a year and a half ago.

I needed to treat traumas and difficulties of which I never dreamed that I would be able to release (after trying other types of treatment as well).

Today, thank G-d, after seeing how TAT has helped me become stable and relaxed, I can stay with this remarkable technique that G-d enabled me to find.

I now experience feelings of release and the disconnection from the traumas that haunted me day and night which hopefully will never come back. I feel free

The most worthwhile and profitable gift that I can have imagined for myself is life after TAT – throwing away all of the waste and garbage that separate us from the wonderful life that G-d has given us.

I do not regret one shekel spent on these treatments, and I spent hundreds, if not thousands, of shekels.

If you have heard about TAT, do not forfeit the opportunity to liberate yourself.


Back Pain, Hand Pain and Physical and Mental Abuse

“I suffered terribly from strong back pain and hand pain. Regarding the hand pain, I was told that there was no chance that the hand would recover; the hand barely functioned. In an X-ray, slipped discs were found and other problems showed up in a CAT scan.

During EFT and TAT treatments with Eliezer Spetter, the pain disappeared almost entirely and the hand resumed functioning. It appears that there is a powerful connection between a person’s physical feeling and his emotional state. I came for treatment because of a personal trauma that I had recently experienced; the trauma was very difficult and I received immense help from the Eliezer Spetter’s unique treatments. My childhood trauma was that of my mother not loving me. After that, between the ages of seven and twelve, I suffered severe physical and mental abuse (I was not raped). The treatments freed me from this trauma as well.

Recently, I experienced a family trauma concerning my husband, a very difficult situation of domestic discord not found normally in a family.

This was a really exceptional problem that I could not discuss, and anyone hearing about it would think it was imaginary, not real. Eliezer’s treatment helped me get back on my feet when I was feeling helpless and afraid. I had been in a terrible state, barely functioning.

Today I am functioning, as is my hand, the one on which that the doctors gave up. I hope that through another few treatments my hand will function fully. I warmly recommend these treatment methods to anyone interested.”


Rape

“How can I cope with people who share my unpleasant past? How can I cope with seeing them? How can I not avoid the area? How can I not be hurt by their behavior around me? Through and during the treatment, I had several encounters; initially, I went into total shock; I didn’t know what to do, where to turn. During the treatment, I learned to face up to people who were unpleasant to be with. For me, that was a victory, because I didn’t run away. I stood my ground. Previously, I could not even speak, but I learned to keep this person away from me, without the whole thing becoming a nuisance. Thank you.”


Physical and Mental Abuse

“Not a day passed in which I didn’t see in my mind’s eye the terrible experiences of physical and mental abuse I experienced. During my last NLP treatment this simply disappeared, and I am able now to live a normal life.

There is a well-know saying of our sages, “G-d provides the solution before the problem”, and I have merited seeing the truth in this with my own eyes. G-d has provided the world with TAT through R. Eliezer, who has helped and saved many people, including my husband and myself.

There are no words to describe our appreciation to you for all your hours and efforts, which saved our lives and our souls.

After the horrible and appalling trauma that continued for 13 years, in which a family member abused me in unspeakable ways. After my marriage, thank G-d, my eyes were opened, and I understood the truth about these unspeakable things that had been withheld from me for 13 years. At that moment a darkness fell upon me, and I felt that I couldn’t continue living after having experienced such physical and emotional traumas, and which are prohibited by the Torah.

G-d, in His infinite mercy and kindness, did not abandon me and I wandered from counselor to counselor and from therapist to therapist, but everything remained the same. I reached despair and total depression but G-d had pity on me, and made me aware of a special therapist, a humble and unassuming person, who lives in pure faith that he is a tool of the Almighty’s, put in this world to help and heal souls among the people of Israel. R. Eliezer Spetter, recommended by worthy and G-d-fearing rabbis, does wonders in healing body and soul for any Jew who needs him.

When I first came to Eliezer I was weak and despairing, full of anger and a desire to take revenge on my whole family. I lived every moment with intense and terrible feelings, together with the bitter traumas that never left me. I very much wanted to become free of the past, of everything in every sense, and to begin life anew. With G-d’s help, R. Eliezer was able to provide solace. It’s unbelievable, but today, thank G-d, after a year of therapy, I live my life in equanimity and self-confidence, strong and independent, empowered, forgiving of the past. Thank G-d, I strive only to move forward in the total belief that everything that happened was decreed by heaven, and that G-d will give me strength to continue doing holy work to His satisfaction in every way. Therefore, Eliezer, you have been a good servant of G-d, saving me in body and soul and for future generations; all the mental, physical and emotional changes I underwent throughout the year of therapy have affected not only me and my husband, but all those around me.

My energy has been changed, and a new life has unfolded before me – it seems like a miracle from above! Therefore I warmly recommend R. Eliezer, who is a worthy messenger from G-d, who aids all in need of help and healing of the soul, which in turn heals the body. With G-d’s help, you can also achieve a new and improved life in every sense, and thus serve Him and do His work whole-heartedly.

Those who seek treatment should not forget that they must be fully committed and desirous of change, and should not be afraid of changing.

Eliezer, it is said that if one saves one person it is as if one saved the entire world. With a heart overflowing with appreciation and many thanks, and blessings that your work bears fruit and brings satisfaction to our Father in heaven, and that G-d’s grace be with you always.

Dear Rav Eliezer Spetter,

I approached you after many years of emotional, social and family difficulties, all due to a troubled childhood. At that stage I felt that it would be better if I were dead.

After trying different methods, including psychology, I did not believe that there was anything that could help me easily or quickly.

The main thing that I liked about TAT is that there was no need to talk about the past, and the treatment worked anyway.

Today, after only twelve treatments, I feel that I have succeeded in separating the facts and traumas of my past from the feelings. I am now able to function on a day-to-day basis without having to deal with the stormy emotions that accompanied me until I began the treatment.

I would like to thank you for being a true and faithful emissary, for the devoted and caring treatment, and for your great efforts that enabled me to feel comfortable and safe.

There are no words to express my wishes to you, but that you continue to help all those who are needy, and the G-d pay your true reward.

Gratefully yours,


I Was Molested Over a Period of Four Years

Dear Eliezer Spetter,

Thank you for your tremendous help with my trauma.

When I was a young child I was molested over a period of four years, and for twenty-four years, I lived in fear, detached from the world and my surroundings. I did not believe that I could heal from this.

With your help, I am now able to begin living.

I often see the person who hurt me, and in the past I would get frightened and tense up. After several sessions I feel much better. I see this person and feel nothing.

You have helped me put the past where it belongs so that I can live in the present and have a hopeful future.

I cannot thank you enough.


Sexual, physical and mental abuse that I suffered from my father

Dear Eliezer.

Thank you very much for the excellent, professional treatments .

When I realized I needed to find a treatment for myself, I was looking for something that would help me get out of the rut I was in, but would not force me to re-experience everything that had happened, and that would give me the strength to properly take care of my children.

Rabbanit Naomi Shapiro recommended TAT, while Rabbanit Levanon had once discussed the technique with me.

The main problem was domestic peace – shlom bayit – especially when I was physically weak: during pregnancy and postpartum. I felt that my husband did not understand me, he was unapproachable and disappointed in me. But the biggest problem, the one that I was afraid treat was the sexual, physical and mental abuse that I suffered from my father, a very complex affair that affected my life more than I realized.

What motivated me to seek help were difficulties that came up with my three year old son who was diagnosed with a developmental delay: he did not talk, would salivate, had motoric difficulties in his hands, and required physical therapy for his clumsiness, occupational therapy, and speech therapy . He found it difficult to go to kindergarten and to become toilet trained.

I was very surprised and troubled my all these, and began to become confused and All this is very surprising to me and weighed me as a mother. I became confused and depressed.

And there were other, various issues which shocked, confused and frightened me, and they awoke all of my repressed problems.

Another cause of trouble was the death of my sister in a car accident during when I was young and which had stayed with me an unresolved trauma throughout my life.

Exactly one year ago, I was cured by Eliezer, who I regard as a messenger from God. My life has changed and greatly improved. I’m happier, relaxed and more at ease, and am amazed that there was something that could help me.

I came to the TAT workshops so I could learn how to continue to treat myself, my dear husband, my sweet children, and others who may have difficulties . I found my calling . I had searched far and wide to find satisfying work whereby I could help others, and thank God, through you, I found it .
