Finding PTSD in The Catcher in the Rye The world-wide famous book The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger can be argued to contain a character that goes about his life with many symptoms of PTSD.

Nordio and Romanelli (2008) reported that acupressure band at HT 7 for 10 hours, daily for 20 days improved sleep and normal melatonin rhythm compared to the control group in 33 patients (p < .05 and p= .01 respectively). Harris and colleagues (2005) investigated the effect of 2 sequences of acupressure treatment (cross-over design) to support relaxation or stimulation administered daily for 3 days. These investigators found that acupressure at LI 4, ST 36 KD 1, and UB 10 decreased fatigue and improved alertness compared to the period of relaxation acupressure in 39 healthy university students. Molassiotis and colleagues (2007) reported that acupressure for 3 minutes daily for 2 weeks improved fatigue compared to the control group (p< 0.05).

Hatha yoga focuses its attention on proper body alignment during the practice of asanas. Yoga, various postures and breathing techniques might help heal the body’s misalignments and physical ailments (Iyengar, 2012). The first report on yogic excercises on voice came from Moore (2012) who has examined the applications of yoga in the treatment of muscle tension dysphonia and concluded that selected modified hatha yoga techniques during the ‘ pre-learning phase ’of voice therapy might achieve optimal arousal states, positive body and mind states, focused awareness, and increased mindfulness. He also proposed that certain yoga techniques appear to increase kinaesthetic awareness, enhancing the ability to use ‘body-mapping’ and ‘internal imaging’, and assisting focus and sensitivity to sensation. This in turn appears to enhance motor learning of vocal remediation techniques and ‘unlearning’ patterns of use involving excess tension.
