The M A D E R OxX®-therapy was once developed
for people with anxiety disorders and therefore offers a form of therapy that includes
all purposes of a TIC "Trauma Informed Care". The TIC M A D E R OxX®-therapy
itself is extremely calming, promotes self awareness and body awareness. The therapy processes
were developed in a way that the method can optimally support therapeutic
interventions with clients that suffer from a traumatic background (e.g. before or after a session with a psychologist/psychiatrist).
The M A D E R OxX®-therapy is working with distance and if required can be given gradually e.g. if working on clients with fear of body contact.
The unique therapy procedure enables to learn "step by step" to experience physical contact tolerable again.
"Most mental health issues are relate to a trauma in childhood"
Stephen W. Porges, Professor in Psychiatry. Interview on the 31st annual trauma conference, USA 2020)
Exercises, that foster mindfulness help to increase self-awareness. With M A D E R OxX®, mindfulness is practiced just as it is possible with meditation and yoga lessons. The difference however is, that with the M A D E R OxX® technique the mindful-training takes place solely due to the unique sequence of the therapy process. Breath deepens and relaxation sets in. Through the moderate pressure stimulation on the receptors (they are placed under the human skin and send information to the brain) also other health-promoting effects can be achieved.
M A D E R OxX® can be used to foster a greater sense of connection between the mind and body complexes, which is a task to re-wire the traumatized brain.
"M A D E R OxX® is an ideal addition to Yoga Therapy. The perception of the body merges with the self consciousness. Because of that, clients can experience a meditative state without previous knowledge and long practice. This is very beneficial for the whole body system."
Cony Fähndrich, Complementary Therapist and Yogatherapist, Luzern
M A D E R OxX®- Engagement for Traumatized Individuals
The founder of the M A D E R OxX®-therapy, Sandra Ulrich, was personally trained within the topic TIC "Trauma Informed Care" in the USA. This opportunity gave Sandra the understanding on the subject of how to care for traumatized people. M A D E R OxX® originated from this knowledge. The TIC therapy application was developed in Switzerland and tested in partnership with Swiss therapists. M A D E R OxX® offers a "Client Center Based" method, which supports the client with its psychological, physical, social and emotional components. The method can be used on children and adults, from the very young to the very old.
though the M A D E R OxX®-method appeals to many beneficially, I particularly have
my heart on people with trauma, anxiety disorders and fear of contact. People
who have experienced physical and/or mental abuse. With M A D E
R OxX® we are addressing a very vulnerable group of individuals. It is
therefore indispensable, that the concept and the method are totally understood and
that the therapy can be given professional and with the necessary mindfulness"
Sandra Ulrich, Founder and Developer
M A D E R OxX®- Re-wire the Traumatic Brain
Therapeutic interventions that promote self-awareness help the traumatized brain to "re-wire". According to Prof. Bessel van der Kolk, promoting self-awarness stimulates these brain regions positively that have changed during a traumatic event. The M A D E R OxX®-therapy devices are specially developed and work with a specific procedure on the dermatomes to promote self- and body awareness.
Mental disorders are increasing worldwide. According to the
WHO, around 264 million people are affected by depression. According to the
UNHCR (office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) published on June 19th 2019 sais, that almost 70.8 million people fleeing war.
The armed world conflicts cause further mental health problems and can
traumatize entire generations. Experts estimates, that around 7.7
million (approx. 7%) in Europe alone suffer from PTSD post-traumatic stress
disorder (Obsan 72).
M A D E R OxX® is a complementary method that is carried out mindful and respects each persons inherent dignity. M A D E R OxX® can be offered on individuals with handicap and is for each gender and age.
M A D E R OxX®- Without Body Contact
Traumatic experiences such as physical or sexual abuse can cause people to reject physical contact. "Touch reduces levels of neurotransmitters such as cortisol that weaken the immune system. And touch also increases levels of neurotransmitters that strengthen the immune system, which in turn promotes healing and recovery from disease". Professor Ralph Nicke, Director of the Clinic for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy at the HSK, Dr. Horst Schmidt Klinik in Wiesbaden.
M A D E R OxX® enables a form of treatment that allows the positive properties of touch to develope, although the moderate pressure therapy is not given like an ordinary body massage.
"During the pandemic in particular, it was important to
me that I could strengthen my immune system. With the moderate pressure therapy
from M A D E R OxX®
- which is given with distance - this was possible. It also calms down and is extremely pleasant "
Dèsirée Schmid, Unterägeri
The treatment processes of the M A D E R OxX®-therapy are structured in a way:
The “feeling of protection and security” can be
increased with a M A D E R OxX®-pyjama e.g. to be used for clients that fear body contact. The M A D E R OxX® method is a treatment
without direct body contact (hands do not work on the body like a body massage). The therapy devices are made of wood that were treated with an eco friendly varnish.
They can be optimally disinfected. The M A D E R OxX®- therapeutic devices make it possible to also treat quarantine patients or highly contagious patients with the needed physical distance.
