I’ve been watching as my friend and good buddy Rehana Webster, who is a world-class expert at handling trauma she travels the world – lately to remote locations deep within the rugged mountains of Pakistan (see the photo below, where she navigates the rickety bridges over treacherous rivers!).
Rehana works with women who have had acid poured into their faces, who were raped, molested or abused, and even women who have been targeted to be killed in ‘honor’ killings.
Rehana uses her unique techniques for busting trauma to help them come back emotionally from such extreme trauma to reclaim their minds and emotions, and live better lives.
Why is this work so important?
Rehana told me that, in her experience, 90% of Pakistan’s population needs help with shock and trauma release. Imagine almost an entire country suffering shock and trauma. That’s serious business!
Fight, Flight or Freeze…
Have you ever noticed how someone who is upset can’t think straight until they get their nerves calmed down? There’s a very good reason for that. They’re in survival mode – Fight, Flight or Freeze.
We’re wired that way. Why? Because when you’re fleeing an enemy or attacker, what do you need to think about other than get safe, get safe, get safe? Our F-F-F mode kicks in so we can get to some kind of safety and survive even the most horrific experiences.
You’re not really safe yet…
But once a person gets to a safe place where she can breathe a sign of relief, the strangest thing happens: sometimes (most times) she can’t unwind by herself. She keeps freaking out, or having flashbacks, terrible dreams, or repetitive visions of what happened.
She may not be able to ‘get present,’ or may experience a level of extreme watchfulness for danger called hyper-vigilance.
Who do you know?
If you know any vets or women who have been brutally assaulted, or people who have gone through accidents, home invasion, domestic violence, rape, war experiences … you’ve seen trauma’s effects close at hand.
Trauma settles in the cells
Talk therapy is pretty useless – the trauma settles into the very cells of the body, and you can’t talk it out. Energy therapies like TBT (Trauma Buster Technique), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), etc. are the fastest way to eliminate the shock and trauma from the body.

Have you ever had an experience of surprise, shock or trauma? It landed in your body, and is still there! Maybe you had years of teasing, or bullying, or neglect from your own parents, siblings or classmates.
You’ll want to listen in as Rehana and I discuss how to defuse trauma so you can get your mind, emotions and life back, and as she talks about her stripped-down, efficient-in-the-field version of EFT she calls the Trauma Buster Technique.

Rehana Webster (Founder of TBT, EFT Master, NLP Master and AAMET Trainer of Trainers) used to work with the Correctional System in NZ, has trained over 200 doctors (!!!) in Pakistan to help their patients with TBT, and has been invited by very prestigious organizations like DOST Foundation and OXFAM to present workshops for the people they help in India and Pakistan.
All that sounds pretty formal, but she’s a kick-ass fun gal who loves to laugh as much as I do!
Here’s the amazingly courageous Rehana Webster as she takes time off from trekking deep into the wild mountains of Pakistan to help women (and men!) in need.
