Therapy For WomenResearch suggests that acupuncture can reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and and chronic pain, may even be an effective intervention for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.)
Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body that are thought to correlate with the nervous system with extremely thin needles. This serves to regulate the nervous system and calm the heart and mind. Acupuncture can be helpful in treating trauma-related illnesses and disorders, because its goal is to find the root of a person’s a pain and stress, and alleviate it in the places where it is stored in the body.
Acupuncture therapy help to release tension by focusing on acupuncture points that help reduce overall sensitivity to pain, stress, and anxiety. It can also help change the brain chemistry by regulating serotonin, noradrenaline, and dopamine which helps lessen the impact of troubling emotional states, and stimulates the production of endorphins.
Acupuncture can address the physical impacts of emotional health, but it is only one piece of the puzzle. Trauma-sensitive acupuncture can also help clients release their trauma-based fears and help their bodies switch out of “fight, flight, or freeze” mode. As a result, clients may feel rejuvenated and reach a greater overall state of well-being.
In a safe and nurturing community composed of their peers, women are guided on their journey of recovery by examining the underlying causes of addiction and co-occurring disorders. The goal is for these individuals to gain the courage to face difficult issues, including grief and loss; heal from emotional trauma; and become accountable for their own feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
