Healing Emotional Trauma with Acupuncture and Herbs, MICHELLE MARCOTTE  HHP, MSTOM, L.Ac in El Cajon, La Mesa. Santee, Lakeside, JamulEmotional trauma is something we all experience in public and in private, at home and work and in war. It is painful, scary, sometimes brief and situational and other times repetitive and long-lasting in the form of PTSD. Emotional trauma isn't something to be ignored or feared. It can be healed with time and attention.

And acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a natural and time-tested method for healing from emotional trauma.

Acupuncture can help with immediate symptoms in acute phases, such as natural disasters, loss, grief, domestic violence and incidents of terrorism. The organization Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) donates acupuncture treatment in the U.S. and abroad to people suffering from trauma. And has worked in Nepal after the earthquake, in Florida after the mass shooting and here in San Diego after our wildfires. Acupuncture also helps those suffering from PTSD, when used regularly.

Chinese herbal formulas also help to ease the symptoms that often accompany emotional trauma. They are a very helpful option for people who are looking for an alternative to pharmaceuticals for anxiety and mild depression.
