Have you tried to “snap out of it” but just can’t seem to? We Are All in Shock shows how you can move past traumas—grounded in psychology, energy medicine, and neurobiology—to reclaim your health and potential through energy healing.
“Dr. Stephanie Mines offers practical steps people can use to fortify and empower themselves and their loved ones …It is a book for our times."—Peter A. Levine, PhD, author, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma
We Are All in Shock provides the tools for reclaiming complete well-being after overwhelming experiences of shock, whether caused by the massive sweep of current events or a personal catastrophe. Dr. Mines redefines psychological trauma and revolutionizes the concept of self-care by identifying the true cause of anxiety, explaining why it is so prevalent in society today and how by recognizing its effect we can find new stability and healing.  Parents, nurses, crisis workers, massage therapists and body workers, psychotherapists and the everyday reader will benefit from the practices Dr. Mines designed not only for symptomatic relief but also for the complete resolution of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual shock and trauma.
We Are All in Shock demystifies energy medicine by presenting the reader with tools to help diminish and eliminate the nervous system’s habitual responses to overwhelming events. Dr. Mines’ work combines skills from energy healing related to acupressure on the energy meridians of the body with the most contemporary scientific interpretation of how the brain works, to offer a clear understanding of neurological behavior.


“This is a book that is engaging intellectually and well-worth the read from cover to cover for the many useful and practical exercises and tools so that we may be strengthened in our minds, bodies and spirits. It is a book for our times.” - Peter A. Levine PhD, author, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma

“The techniques are easily applied and are effective. As one who has worked in the field of energy medicine for over 25 years and trained thousands of students, this is probably my most important assurance to you, the reader.” - Donna Eden and David Feinstein, PhD, authors, Energy Medicine

"We are all in Shock is a landmark book. Reading like a novel but informing like a text, it edifies that psychological shock is a universal malady of modern and technocratic cultures, and teaches us practical ways that shock can be self-managed and treated. It’s a ‘must read’ for anyone who wishes to self-heal or to heal others."

- William R. Emerson. PhD, President Emeritus, American Association of Pre- and Perinatal Psychology

“Dr. Mines has gifted us with simple, yet profound and empowering techniques for the resolution of shock and trauma." - Carmen Freeman, M.S., C.H.T, health activist, recipient of the National MS Society Achievement Award

“This book is a treasure! It is of special importance to every prospective parent as well as to all those who have survived trauma.” - Suzanne Arms, author of Immaculate Deception
