We call ourselves 5th responders, we appear in the AFTERMATH of a tragedy. 

Weeks after a tragic event PTSD will present, but all the responders are gone on to the next situation. 

Touch therapy and hope through talk, blogging and conference calls are where we come in to help.  



STRESSBUSTERSINC is a 501c(3) Foundation. (1999- Present)

We approach counseling on stress reduction from a holistic view. 

What this means is we treat the entire person. This includes family relations, jobs or lack of, spirituality, all that makes you who you are. We listen, talk and let you express your thoughts as well as "touch therapy" through trigger pointing, neuro-muscular re-education or craniosacral and therapeutic massage to release the meridians in the body. 

We can call in a reflexologist.

We will come to your place of business to perform these stress management therapy sessions for PTSD or we will set up a comfort center at your major event.

Massage therapists with their equipment for table or chair massage are a part of the package.

Proceeds in the form of donations will help Veterans receive service at little or no cost to them. They have already paid for their services.

Veterans, victims of Spiritual Abuse and others suffering from PTSD often benefit from talk therapy along with touch therapies that release the meridians in the body.

We cater to Women's, shelters and support groups. 


We accept sponsorship from local businesses to set up in the community where a tragedy has occurred. We live in stressful times and PTSD has to be addressed. Post-traumatic Stress Syndrome is real and has a physical proponent that massage therapy and talk therapy will address. 

Additional Services:

Massage to support Homebound Physical therapy
Non-ambulatory patients
Palliative care and Hospice care if recommended by a Physician
Veteran events ( massages are at a greatly reduced price) 


Our company has been in business since Massage Therapy was gaining attention as a modality for health professionals.  Our Whole Body, Mind, Music approach has been proven to help you deal with the tough times and stresses of our modern world.
