Unveiling the Science Behind Rapid Transformational Therapy: Is it Truly Evidence-Based?

Welcome to another enlightening journey into the world of transformative healing! Let’s dive into a question I get a lot…

Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) – a revolutionary method created by the incredible therapist Marisa Peer. Ms. Peer has been cultivating her unique approach for over three decades, gathering her research on what tools and techniques provide the fastest, most transformative results for her clients. I never really worried about scientific studies personally, because I saw real-life evidence in the results of her clients, and that’s why I signed up immediately to learn her methods and become a Rapid Transformational Therapist. I believe this is a calling for me. I was divinely led to do this work.

That being said, I know some folks want more information and more evidence, so if you’re one of those folks, let’s give you some more info!

As we explore the depths of this therapeutic technique, one burning question emerges:

Rapid Transformational Therapy, considered the alchemy of healing by many, combines the best elements of various therapeutic modalities to facilitate fast and profound transformation. This method, developed by Marisa Peer, incorporates elements of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). But does the fusion of these approaches render RTT evidence-based?


The Research Landscape:

In the field of psychotherapy, establishing a gold standard for evidence can be a complex task. Traditional research methodologies, such as randomized controlled trials (RCTs), have their place, but the nature of RTT makes it challenging to adhere strictly to these norms. Despite this, the efficacy of RTT has been explored through various channels.


Clinical Experience and Case Studies:

Marisa Peer, with her extensive clinical experience, has documented numerous cases where RTT has led to transformative changes in clients. These anecdotal accounts form a foundation of evidence, showcasing the real-world impact of the therapy.


Neuroscientific Insights:

The integration of hypnotherapy in RTT taps into the fascinating realm of neuroplasticity. Studies in neuroscience suggest that the brain has the ability to rewire itself, supporting the notion that RTT can induce tangible changes at the neurological level.


Client Testimonials:

While personal testimonials are subjective, the sheer volume of positive feedback from RTT clients cannot be dismissed. The consistent reports of profound and lasting change hint at the therapy’s effectiveness.


Comparison Studies:

Some studies have compared RTT with other therapeutic approaches, demonstrating its comparative efficacy. While these studies may not fit the traditional RCT model, they contribute valuable insights into the therapeutic landscape.


Challenges and Criticisms:

Plenty of articles and criticism against RTT exist, for sure. Some argue that the lack of large-scale RCTs limits its acceptance in mainstream therapeutic circles. The absence of a standardized protocol for RTT can be seen as both a strength, allowing for individualized treatment, and a weakness, making it challenging to replicate and validate. But that doesn’t bother me any. Let me share some evidence from my personal experiences of some of my clients.


One client, we’ll call her Jenny, came to me because she wanted to lose weight. She found herself snacking on yummy salty crunchy things like chips and pretzels throughout the day, even though she wasn’t hungry. During her session, we discovered that the root cause of her snacking was the beliefs she created during her childhood. One scene that came up was when she was a young girl, she was attending a family barbeque. Her parents were so poor at the time that they didn’t have any money to contribute any food to this gathering. They came empty-handed. She ran up to the table to eat some snacks, and her father reprimanded her. He felt so much shame that he couldn’t afford to bring any food to the event, that he told her she wasn’t allowed to eat anything. Guess what snacks she was eating when her father told her to stop? You guessed it, chips.

Not all scenes have an exact direct correlation to the presenting problem the client is working to solve, and that’s why this scene is forever burned into my memory. It was directly related to CHIPS! That’s what she was compelled to continuously snack on as a grown incredible woman.

After her session, she felt no desire to eat chips, and she lost 20 pounds.

Incredible, right?


Another client, we’ll call Mary, came to me with debilitating panic attacks. She was waking up in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat and couldn’t go back to sleep. During her session, she was able to discover the root cause and let it go. Then she listened to her transformational recording that night. She slept all night. The anxiety she was feeling vanished. Now, not everyone has dramatic INSTANT results, but many do.


Part of the success of RTT comes from the detective work we do while you are in the relaxed state called hypnosis. The second part of the success comes from the calming of the nervous system itself. The third piece of the RTT success puzzle comes from the transformation recording that I make after each session. The transformation recording is specific to each client and includes the thoughts and beliefs that they are working to strengthen. Your mind learns by repetition! Your mind loves repetition. Think about anything you have learned. You learned to walk by trying it over and over again until you stopped falling (at least regularly:) You learned to speak your native language from everyone around constantly repetitively speaking to you every day, all day. That’s how we learn.

So while I don’t proclaim to be a scientist, I love sharing the evidence that I’ve gathered in a very short amount of time.

RTT helps you create more calm in your life. RTT helps you release childhood trauma once and for all. RTT helps you create more confidence. RTT helps you release bad habits that you’d like to release and achieve your goals.
