PSTD In Athletes

Vashti received her Certificate of Research in Psychoneuromuscular Injuries from the University of Kansas by completing the Research Experience Program. Her interest in the topic was birthed by her own experiences with muscular PTSD and a severe back injury she had for six years.  She is now on a life journey to use her discoveries to help other performers and athletes understand their body from the inside out. 

In conjunction with her research, Vashti is developing a series of concert dance works that will further promote awareness about conditions caused by psychoneuromuscular injuries.  Below is the prologue to this series entitled, Organic Machines, performed by the Lawrence Ballet Theatre. The full production requires a password. Please contact Vashti if you wish to request a password.
