The ancient Chinese art of acupuncture is based on a belief that mental and physical well-being depends on the continuous flow of energy (Qi) through the body. When you experience a mental health disorder, your body needs to be rebalanced to allow the nourishing energy to reinvigorate and heal you from within. In order to remove blockages and encourage energy flow, small, sterile needles are painlessly inserted in specific parts of the body, stimulating the body’s ability to restore itself and provide relief from distress. Research supports the use of acupuncture for a wide range of psychological and physical symptoms and, when used in conjunction with a comprehensive treatment plan, many people experience profound benefits from this form of holistic therapy. It can be particularly beneficial for those suffering from trauma-based disorders, as it allows you to experience therapeutic release without having to discuss your painful memories. At Bridges to Recovery, we have found that clients who engage in acupuncture have improved outcomes and find a sense of peace, stability, and enhanced awareness of both their emotional and somatic states.
Acupuncture at Bridges to Recovery
At Bridges to Recovery, our acupuncturists will discuss your situation and any concerns you may have to design a treatment plan that addresses your specific emotional and physical needs. Using their years of experience, they can identify blockages you are experiencing and apply stimulation to the parts of the body related to your symptoms, encouraging neural connectivity and opening up the flow of energy. One acupuncture session per week is included in your cost of treatment, though you can also arrange for additional sessions. By engaging your natural healing abilities, you can gain confidence in your body and find rapid release from psychological suffering.
