Spa & Wellness Centre



Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years helping many. There are hundreds of acupuncture points on the body which run along meridians (energy pathways). The Chinese call this energy Qi. Each point has a purpose and is used to stimulate and balance the body. When the body is out of balance we feel ill, or notice that something just isn’t right. Acupuncture can help the body restore balance and is particularly beneficial for pain relief, people with diabetes, colitis, arthritis, sports injuries, high blood pressure, acne, eczema, circulation, stress, depression and more. By stimulating the Qi, the body can begin to rebalance itself. The needles used are the width of a course human hair and treatments are quite relaxing!

Here are a few ways acupuncture may help in the treatment of PTSD:Stress Reduction: Acupuncture has been shown to have a calming effect on the nervous system. It can help regulate the body's stress response and reduce the release of stress hormones such as cortisol. By promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety, acupuncture may alleviate some of the symptoms associated with PTSD.Pain Management: Many individuals with PTSD also experience chronic pain or physical symptoms related to their trauma. Acupuncture has been used for centuries to manage pain, and some studies have found it to be effective for various pain conditions. By reducing pain and discomfort, acupuncture may help improve overall well-being in individuals with PTSD.Sleep Improvement: Sleep disturbances, including insomnia and nightmares, are common in people with PTSD. Acupuncture has been reported to improve sleep quality and quantity in some individuals. By regulating the sleep-wake cycle and promoting relaxation, acupuncture may help address sleep problems associated with PTSD.Emotional Regulation: Acupuncture is believed to influence the release of neurotransmitters in the brain, including endorphins, which are associated with feelings of well-being and relaxation. By modulating these neurotransmitters, acupuncture may help regulate mood and emotions, potentially reducing the severity of PTSD symptoms.Complementary Approach: Acupuncture is often used as a complementary therapy alongside other conventional treatments for PTSD, such as psychotherapy and medication. It may provide an additional supportive element to an individual's overall treatment plan.Ronda Teas, Registered Acupuncturist is accepting new clients. Call (902)883-8668 to book your appointment.
