Emotional Transformation through Psychological Acupuncture
Do you feel like your depression has not improved, despite extensive psychotherapy?
Do you feel like your anxiety or your PTSD symptoms are the same as ever, despite new practices and various counselors?
Then psychological acupuncture might be for you.
Developed by a licensed psychologist and acupuncturist in a rehab setting, psychological acupuncture helps uncover deep-seated emotional pain that is contributing to depression and anxiety.
What traditional psychology fails to understand is the role of the body in mental health disorders. Psychological acupuncture addresses the nexus of body and mind in a way that permits healing at the deepest levels.
What to expect from a typical session?
A 35-minute session with both a psychotherapist and an acupuncturist in which there is a brief discussion of issues you're dealing with, followed by the insertion of 7-10 very thin (nearly painless) acupuncture needles, and then a period in which you talk about whatever memories, images and/or feelings that come up. A 10-15 minute period of silence may occur, which can be seen as a time when the needles are stimulating the body to heal and cleanse. Some patients report feeling different after a session, or more in touch with themselves. For others, it is a type of journey inwards, leaving them feeling more grounded and confident.
What are the best ways to utilize a session?
Sometimes one session--alone--can create the change a person is looking for. Other times the products of the session are useful for that person's ongoing therapy or journaling activities, providing, in a sense, grist for the mill. Still other times, a person will use psychological acupuncture as their stand-alone treatment modality, and will find 5-7 treatments helpful in clarifying issues and making needed change. The results are very individualized.
