Multimodal transgenerational somatic trauma therapy M.T.K.T.©

Multimodal transgenerational somatic trauma therapy M.T.K.T.© consists of the targeted activation of unconscious memories of trauma using the following methods: systemic family constellation work, voice dialogue, eye-movement work and bodywork. This process is based on remembering and/or becoming aware of traumatic memories. This can lead to strong physical reactions such as sweating and trembling muscles, as well as intense emotional outbursts such as crying and screaming.
It is not uncommon for patients to continue to feel emotional and physical effects such as exhaustion for several days after an M.T.K.T.© session.

In contrast to classic psychotherapy, the objective of this type of trauma therapy is not to discuss the patient’s experience, and it differs from family constellation work in that it does not focus on the dynamics of a family system; rather, its aim is to make visible and to treat both personal and intergenerational trauma that is held in the body and mind.

This type of examination of trauma is demanding and calls for strength and courage; however, the special mix of methods means that it releases a great deal of energy for transformation and for initiating healing and integration processes.

This type of work is not a substitute for psychotherapy, and patients must be psychologically stable and have a strong desire to participate actively in the process. The practice of bodywork involves exerting strong pressure on the soft tissue. Depending on the patient’s individual constitution and sensitivity, this can occasionally lead to pain, redness and bruising.

Conditions for participation and important information

  • Participants should be psychologically and physically stable and able to withstand a normal amount of stress. This type of treatment is not suitable during pregnancy.
  • Before beginning M.T.K.T.©, patients must inform me of any scars, varicose veins or other soft tissue complaints or any other physical ailments.
  • The success of M.T.K.T.© depends to a great extent on the attentiveness of the participants and their willingness to engage closely with the topic of trauma. M.T.K.T.© is not a substitute for the work of a psychotherapist or psychiatrist. No guarantees can be given of the success of the process.
  • Those who wish to undertake this therapy and are currently undergoing treatment for mental illness or have undergone such treatment in the last 18 months or have any doubt about their psychological resilience should consult their doctor or psychotherapist and obtain a certificate confirming their fitness for treatment from them.

M.T.K.T.© is not covered by statutory or private health insurance.
