There are many names for dystonia movement disorders and many individuals, athletes, and artists who suffer from its debilitating symptoms. This website is about Dr. Z's CBT-based adrenaline/cortisol reduction approach to the amelioration of dystonia symptoms. 

To give you an overview of the 8 steps, I have created one single PDF document, free to download.

This 8-step CBT-based treatment is my adrenaline & cortisol management approach to the treatment of dystonia for symptom reduction.

Dear Dystonia Sufferer, 
Join me on the journey toward an appreciable reduction of your dystonia symptoms through the self-management of adrenaline and cortisol (the stress hormones) that are now circulating in great quantity throughout your body, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I am a former dystonia (blepharospasm) sufferer and I conquered it through willpower and determination by applying these same techniques.
Through personal experience, I've learned that dystonia can be more easily managed through the addition of a supplemental adrenaline/cortisol reduction method.
This website outlines the basic method, which may supplement Botox, your current medications or nutraceutical, post-surgery, and in addition to mechanical devices.
It is not a cure, but it can help greatly reduce your dystonia symptoms. To get the most benefits, you will need to work with me or another similarly trained clinician to customize the treatment to your specific situation.
Review the 8 steps  and then, with your full participation and your strong desire to get better, we can begin working on the treatment together.
Get in touch ! I look forward to working with you!
Sincerely,
Dr. Z
