Integrating psychotherapy, medication management, acupuncture, reiki & massage for an encompassing and empowering approach to healing.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is known to:

 

For Pain:

Reduce inflammation, relax tense muscles, increase blood flow to affected painful areas/increase circulation, and decrease stress responses.

 

Anxiety/Trauma/Fight or Flight:

Acupuncture is known to balance fight or flight/rest and digest symptoms, as it down regulates sympathetic activation

 

Depression:

Many people who experience depression feel stuck.  Acupuncture helps promote the free flow of energy and people report movement.  Acupuncture also helps with commonly experienced symptoms of depression, including muscle tension, sleep difficulties, headaches, and digestive upset.

 

Our goal at ITTC is to provide several approaches to healing and to address it from several angles that include varying dimensions of mental health.  Therapy in adjunct with acupuncture is a powerful approach to trauma, mood disorders, recovery from physical injuries related to trauma (such as motor vehicle accidents, domestic abuse or other types of assault) and mood difficulties.
