Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicinal technique that eases pain, alleviates stress, and promotes wellness. According to Chinese medical theory, energy flows through our bodies through a network of “roads.” Trauma and intense emotions are roadblocks that interrupt the flow of energy in the body. Acupuncture can help clear these roadblocks, and allow the central nervous system to run more smoothly.
Therapy for Women
Research suggests that acupuncture can reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, and may even be an effective intervention for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.)
Acupuncture works by using extremely thin needles to stimulate specific points on the body that are thought to correlate with the nervous system. 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 pain and stress in order to alleviate it in the places where it is stored in the body.
Acupuncture therapy helps 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.
