The Invisible Machine: The Startling Truth About Trauma and the Scientific Breakthrough That Can Transform Your Life

We rated this book:


The Invisible Machine by Eugene Lipov, Jamie Mustard, and Holly Lorincz is about a revolutionary new way to treat trauma disorders. Dr. Lipov, a renowned anesthesiologist, discovered that injecting anesthesia into a particular part of one’s back can lead to a dual sympathetic reset. This leads to one being able to have increased functioning and decreased activated symptoms of trauma.

As a therapist, I think this book is highly valuable. I was curious as to why the medical field has not promoted this practice for treating trauma. I was pleased when the authors addressed this question. Most of the therapy I provide is to clients who have varying levels of trauma. I really appreciated Dr. Lipov’s view on PTSD being changed to PTSI. This made him credible and as a practitioner, I found myself wanting to work with him and refer clients for his treatment. The numerous patient anecdotes, as well as, the information from studies provided supportive data for Dr. Lipov’s treatment. I am interested to see how this treatment will impact the mental health field.
