VAC Metrowest offers free community-style acupuncture to active military, Veterans and their Family members for the purpose of stress and trauma relief. Acupuncture acts as a reset button for the nervous system, taking you out of fight-or-flight and making you feel calm and in control of your mind and body. If you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) this can be a great relief; you don't need to talk about or relive your trauma. You come, sit and relax with other people who understand what you have been through. Many of our clients report that after treatment they feel better able to cope with daily life.
