Unlocking The Brain's
for post-traumatic growth
Every year in the US, 60 million people suffer from mental illness.
But 2/3 do not get the help they need because efficacious therapies are exclusive.
Our name is inspired by Akeso,
the Greek goddess of curing sickness
and healing wounds.
Unlike her sister Panakeia (Panacea) (Cure-All)
she represented the process of a curing
rather than the cure itself.
Akesa Health’s digital intervention is designed to empower people suffering from post traumatic stress to unlock their brain’s self-healing potential and to act as a first step or as a supplement to therapy.
By integrating components of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), gamification, binaural sounds, and tools to increase self-awareness, we empower users to transform stressful experiences into post-traumatic growth.
Incorporates components of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a therapy recommended by the American Psychiatry Association, WHO and UN for the treatment of PTSD, and whose efficacy has been demonstrated in randomized clinical trials
No verbalizing limits the risk of re-traumatization.
Gamification keeps user engaged
Users can access the app anytime they need without having to wait for therapists to be available and are in control of their healing process.
The product helped me look at an emotional trauma that was in the background of my mind. It helped me deep dive into understanding it and reframing it to myself. It was a highly effective experience that was made to be quick and easy to use.
I can see recommending such an app to my patients and our behavioral health department.

Resilience Can Be Learned
We are not born with or without resilience.
Resilience is a skill, like riding a bike, that we can learn.
Growing resilient is key.
Resilience helps protect against depression, deal with anxiety, and correlates with physical and mental health.
