Acupuncture as a Low-Cost Treatment for PTSD

There are at least two formal studies done with returning veterans which showed that acupuncture by itself is actually superior to traditional therapies for treating all the varied symptoms of PTSD–anxiety, flashbacks, depression, nightmares, etc. Simple ear acupuncture also turned out to be one of the most popular, fast-acting, and effective therapies for firefighters and others dealing with the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 World Trade Center events.  I will be giving a talk at the Upper Valley Food Coop (in White River Junction, VT)  Thursday, October 22nd, 2009 at 6 PM about treating nightmares and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder using acupuncture. At the talk I will be showing a short film by Laura Cooley, explaining about auricular acupuncture, and then demonstrating typical treatments on ear points for those who would like to experience (or observe) a treatment. Those who have come to me for the treatment of trauma-related nightmares have stopped having any nightmares after one to two treatments, with no side effects. Treatments like these are available here in Thetford on a sliding scale from $25-50, (or in private sessions for $75.)
The talk is free, though I will be accepting donations toward the community clinic.
