Gerry's Clinic


1. Trauma Discharge Massage

It is easy to end up blaming yourself for struggling with daily life when the simple truth is that your nervous system is suffering from ambient trauma overload.

If you feel that you are carrying significant amounts of ambient trauma in your nervous system, then having a series of 4 trauma discharge massage sessions in 4 weeks can make a real difference.

This psychological approach to touch, silently and effortlessly removes the "invisible" ambient trauma that we are all carrying. Such trauma discharge may be all that we need in order to "get on" with life and sort out our own problems.  It often produces feelings of wellbeing, greater resilience and increased mental positivity, amongst many other beneficial outcomes.

I work from my treatment room in Wānaka. 

Set of 4 sessions: $800.

Please allow up to 2 hours for the first session. Subsequent sessions are around 75 minutes.

I use three different treatment protocols in my clinic:

2. PsychoTactile Therapy

If you are experiencing repeated bouts of active trauma, then seeing a therapist who can work safely and gently with both words and touch is the most effective strategy.

My integration of touch and words is unique and may save you months and even years of “talking” therapy.  We target the specific part of your nervous system where the trauma has accumulated and facilitate its safe discharge.  For this reason sessions last around 90 minutes.

I work from my treatment room in Wānaka.


Sessional rate: $200


3. Intensive Mini-Retreat

If you live too far away from Wānaka to travel for regular sessions, I offer an intensive  package, where you can book 5 sessions over 3 to 5 days for either trauma discharge massage or psychotactile therapy.


Wānaka is a popular holiday destination, and there are plenty of different accommodation options to choose from to suit your style and budget.  


I usually schedule these sessions at the start and/or end of the day, so you have plenty of time left to make your stay in this stunning alpine resort a reflective and restorative experience.

Five session package: $1000.

Unsure about what treatment is best for you?

Working with trauma means you need to feel safe.

I offer a free 30 minute zoom session to discuss your options. 

This initial consultation gives you a chance to decide whether or not you feel comfortable working with me and gives me a chance to assess which treatment pathway is best for you.
