Reflections on a year of treating PTSD • Anna Kelly • EAP070
Our guest when we recorded this show, had just completed a year working in the Wounded Warriors program at Walter Reed hospital. There she used acupuncture to treat veterans for PTSD, trauma brain injury and other chronic conditions that soldiers face after being injured in the line of duty. As with so many complex and difficult conditions, there is no simple cure for PTSD, as trauma of this sort entangles its way into so many aspects of a person’s life. While we do discuss the role of acupuncture in aiding with the recovery from PTSD, this conversation touches on a range of therapies and modalities that not only help those suffering from this stifling condition, but also are helpful for a wide range of chronic issues that get stuck in our physical and psycho-emotive systems. Listen in as we explore how transformation is an integral part of healing a shattered life.
