Healing thru Hitting (HTH) is an all-day mental health program designed with First Responders in mind. First Responders are specialized in their training to be the first to arrive and provide assistance and or resolve highly intense situations.
The scenarios First Responders experience require a strong psychological mindset.
However, over time without proper mindset training, the response to the nature of these traumatic events disrupts the refractory period of recovery of a responder.
Healing Thru Hitting is designed to give First Responders additional tools and resources tospeed up the refractory recovery period, and also maintain mental focus learning the same techniques used by professional baseball players.
"Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game."
