Trauma Support

People experience traumatic reactions after a car accident or the death of a loved one. It is a reasonable response to a stressful situation or event. The result of such trauma can include but are not limited to:

  • Muscle tension
  • Trouble staying asleep/insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Increased heart rate/heart pounding in chest
  • Unexplained weight gain or loss
  • Overeating
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Problems with relationships
  • Avoidance of anything that reminds them of the event

Acupuncture can reduce the severity of these symptoms by addressing the over-activity of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response), resulting in a feeling of safety and increased physical comfort. At Traditions Acupuncture we also work with nutritional supplements to further support the body in its recovery and healing process.
