Chinese medicine views the body and mind as integrated aspects of the same system. It does not divide them into different components and treat them separately. They are one. Therefore, the causes and manifestations of PTSD are as much physical as they are psychological. By taking a holistic approach, and addressing the root cause, Chinese medicine can effectively treat both the physical and psychological symptoms caused by shock and trauma.
There are specific and specialized acupuncture protocols that are able to address the root trauma and its effects on the body and mind. Combining these with other acupuncture treatments, herbal medicine, qigong, and meditation have produced effective clinical results. The methods used by Jay can also compliment and be used in conjunction with other western medical treatments. Taking an integrated and holistic approach and treating both the root and branch can ultimately achieve greater healing responses.
Recovering from any traumatic experience and healing the invisible wounds of war is a process. Jay is able to provide a number of valuable and effective tools to veterans and their families and a personalized approach that will address the specific needs of each patient. There are far fewer side effects to his holistic approach, and the healing results can be deep and long lasting leading to greater quality of life.
