About Our PROJECT
The PTSD Relief Project is a 501(c) non-profit organization with the mission of providing acupuncture, equine therapy, and other non-traditional approaches in treating PTSD for veterans and survivors of trauma. The PTSD Relief Project plans to pursue grants for the initial program
costs to provide programs for women veterans and then expand the programs from there. The founder of the PTSD Relief Project, Jenny-Marie Greenough, has a unique collection of skills and experiences and a broad selection of healers to partner with.
hOW WE CAN HELP
Personalized equine therapy
The primary equine programs used by the PTSD Relief Project is equine assisted learning and the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method—both of which use ground-based interactions with the horses to help the human partners become more aware of their internal emotional states and how to control them.
tai chi lessons
Tai Chi is an ancient, graceful form of exercise utilizing movements in a slow, focused manner to combat stress, anxiety, and improve flexibility and achieve overall balance.
Wellness coaching & treatments
From acupuncture to massage to breathing techniques, our non-traditional methods have been used for centuries, and have been proven safe and effective.
I feel like I have my life back. I cannot say enough good things about this program.
Jenny-Marie is not only very knowledgeable with the struggles of PTSD, but she was amazingly compassionate and incredibly patient as I made my way through my journey of healing. She understands everyone is different, and after previous years of struggling, I am finally on the right track!
It felt like I tried everything, until I met Jenny and decided to try something different. I had never been around horses so I was a little unsure. I can now safely say I made the right choice.
It has helped with a lot of things in my life, and I use principles and lessons all the time. I have learned patience, empathy, and to be kind to myself, among other things. I feel healthier and closer to myself, my family, and my community; and I couldn’t be more grateful for this life-changing gift. Thank you.
what is ptsd?
Anyone can develop PTSD at any age. Some factors can increase the chance that someone will have PTSD, many of which are not under that person’s control. For example, having a very intense or long-lasting traumatic event or getting injured during the event can make it more likely that a person will develop PTSD.
It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after a traumatic event (also called “trauma”). At first, it may be hard to do daily activities you are used to doing, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about. But with proper treatment, many people start to feel better after a few weeks or months. For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later, or they may come and go over time.
May experience sleeplessness and uneasiness
Altered anxiety state, changes on mood or thinking
May avoid things you used to enjoy
Symptoms may differ or come and go over time
