Our Asperger's Syndrome Treatment
The Peak States Clinics treat clients (children or adults) diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome or those with social interaction issues.
We encourage adults with Aspergers, or parents who are interested in having their child with Aspergers, to participate in our process for eliminating their impairment in social interaction to contact us. The process has been tested successfully on a number of children ages 6 to 15, as well as on adults.
To help understand the type of client this treatment can assist, below is a personal account from one client who received the Aspergers treatment and a case report from the therapist of another client with Aspergers
Personal account from a client who received the Aspergers treatment
The treatment was quite straightforward and I could navigate easily through the different phases of it.
Since the first session I felt a big shift that became more stable and defined during the other two sessions.
Before the treatment I had the sense of being inside a submarine alone with only my feelings and thoughts. Other people’s feeling and thinking processes were very far away, outside the submarine: I could see them though, but it was like watching the world through a round porthole. I felt like I was separated emotionally from people and events and this made it difficult acting in social situations with empathy, for example. It was like wearing an invisible old fashioned submarine suit at a fancy dinner: no one knows you wear it so they treat you “normally” but you are not very graceful in your movement and interactions and you end up ignoring or hurting people next to you.
As this condition can have the apparent benefit of protecting you from what hurts others, in this scuba suit, you also let out those subtle feelings of interactions with people. The result is making you feel that you are not belonging in the world where others perfectly fit into. You might learn all about how to act, but it doesn’t feel like you are actually living it with ownership. In fact, I rather had a passive role in relationships.
The treatment made me “get out of the submarine” and all those feelings changed: in the first days after the treatment I felt like I was “outside” the suit, and therefore being exposed to a 3-dimensional world. Trees looked huge and sticking out from the background, the sky looked high and all objects somehow had a “presence”. I have an intuitive knowledge of what is around me now and I feel that I can reach out to the world. As a consequence, I feel I belong to what I do. There is no separation. I also felt that I can have an influence on the world and on people, helping out when needed and comforting.
It was funny one day right after the treatment when I entered a very narrow elevator, and the presence of the walls on both sides made me prefer to turn 90 degrees so that my awareness would “have more space” inside that small place. Another time I went running with my partner that was right behind me and that I couldn’t see. Suddenly she changed her direction crossing the street and I felt her while she was doing that. I started laughing from the surprise of my newly acquired awareness of the space around me. I believe that in team sports I would do way better now because I would intuitively feel my teammates moving around me without the need to look and think.
The first few “shield-less” days were funny and at the same time a bit of a worrying experience because it was all new, but I quickly got used to it. Now landscapes look marvellous and a simple stroll downtown is way more interesting because it is a world inhabited by aliveness and characters that I can interact with. Hiking in nature as well has a whole new meaning.
Most importantly, now people occupy a “volume” on their own and have a “soul” or a “presence” on their own, separated from my presence and therefore I can interact with them as a peer player of the game. I feel my presence and my emotions and I feel other’s presence and I have intuitive insights about how they feel. This brought within a great deal of peace in my relationships: everything feels way more simple and uncomplicated. I react to the world stimula with aliveness and with appropriate responses. At a dinner with other people, I stopped overthinking and I simply enjoyed being together participating in the natural flow of the conversations.
Finally I’m less preoccupied and in need of recovery alone-time. I have less tics and social anxiety as well.
Written testimonial from a Polish client
"Po procesie jakość mojego życia znacznie wzrosła.
Nie odczuwam bariery w kontaktach między ludzkich, rozmowa z nieznajomymi ja i znajomymi, przyjaciółmi jest bardziej swobodna, czerpię z niej większą przyjemność. Nie ma skrępowania i takiego uczucia, że coś jest między nami.
Nie mam już wrażenia w mniejszych pomieszczeniach, że jest mi duszno, tłoczno, źle, że ludzie, którzy są tam ze mną, osaczają mnie- zawsze uciekałam z takich miejsc.
Przez to, że ja czuję się swobodniej, lepiej, bardziej komfortowo, przestrzeń koło mnie jest jakby bardziej otwarta, zmieniły się też nastroje w mojej rodzinie. Jesteśmy bardziej rozluźnieni, okazujemy sobie jeszcze więcej czułości i miłości, dzieci stały się spokojniejsze i bardziej wspołpracują 😊."
"After the process the quality of my life has increased significantly.
I do not feel a barrier in contacts between people, the conversation with strangers or my friends is more free, I enjoy it more. There is no embarrassment nor a feeling that there is something between us.
I no longer have the impression in smaller rooms that I am stuffy, crowded, bad, or that the people who are there with me are crowding me - I always used to run away from such places.
Because I feel freer, better, more comfortable, the space next to me is more open and the moods in my family have changed. We are more relaxed, we show even more tenderness and love, and children have become calmer and more cooperative 😊."
Who is suitable for this treatment?
The table below shows the diagnostic criteria that are improved with our treatment. In addition to this, almost all of our clients report improvement in balance and coordination after completing the treatment.
How do we eliminate the Asperger's symptoms?
We use state-of-the-art psychological techniques for healing Aspergers-related pre-natal trauma, developed specifically for this purpose. Each client is treated individually with a personalized treatment plan.
The treatment does not involve medication. In fact, there is no need for physical touch between therapist and client. The technique applied during the session uses tapping on certain meridian points. For children doing the process, the parent is present during the whole session. Normally, results immediately appear (and continue to develop over the following year).
As in any new medical treatment, there is always a risk that unforeseen negative side effects or problems can occur. Although we haven’t seen any side effects to the treatment, you should be aware that this possibility exists.

Case report from a therapist that delivered the treatment with another client who had Aspergers
Syndrome social interaction symptoms that received this treatment:
Male client mid 30s. His therapist suspected Asperger’s Syndrome by the description of the client’s social impairments. It was confirmed that he had the known symptoms of being encased in what looks and feels like a glass cylinder, hindering emotional connection with people outside of the encasement.
When assessing the client he reported the following:
-He was able to see and sense the encasement and its position outside of the body
-He described it as ‘ceramic’
-He felt it more on the left side
-He also reported that he was able to perceive a hole in the wall in front of him
-He was generally fearful and had anxiety a) when being by himself and thinking about future social or professional interactions and b) when interacting with people in his life
-He felt confused about their intentions and his perception of them
-He felt that he had no control over situations involving other people
-He perceived people outside of his encasement as somewhat threatening
-His therapist asked him to try to move his awareness out of the hole in the wall and perceive people from that perspective. He said that his fearfulness and anxiety went away, and he felt safe and clearer about who the people were and in control of his interactions with them.
-The client had a little bit of fear about doing the session and not having his ’protective’ encasement
His therapist pointed out to him that after the treatment he would feel the same way as when he put his awareness outside of the encasement.
He found it easy to follow the instructions of the process.
After the session he just sat there (like a little boy in front of a Christmas tree with gifts). All his fears and anxieties about being in the world with people had dropped away and he felt safe.
He reported that now he was able to sense people and make sense of his interactions/emotional exchanges with them. The confusion was gone.
We always do two follow up sessions after the process has been completed successfully (which may take more than one session). This ensures that the symptom elimination of social interaction issues is stable. Both follow up sessions were without further problems or reversals of symptoms.
