healing the whole self.
Positive Life Acupuncture, PLLC
The Nonprofit Clinic
Positive Life Acupuncture has partnered with Changing Health Inc to bring you the Nonprofit Acupuncture clinic specializing in PostPartum wellness and Women Post Trauma (or PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder). The clinic is a place where women can find support and a quiet, calm environment to relax and rest and feel like their needs are cared for without worrying about financial stress.
Many times in our fast paced world after any type of trauma happens, we are rushed back into the habits of taking care of others, going back to work and doing instead of taking the time to just be and heal. Acupuncture helps to release endorphins, calms the sympathetic nervous system (flight or fight response) and helps to clear what we call "heat" in the body, aka inflammation. With the experience of trauma, we can tend to want to "hide away" from the world due to the overactive firing of the amygdala part of the brain, the fear response. Its as if the fear response is overfiring. Connecting with others in this community setting can help to reconnect, even if this happens slowly.
We are here to support you on your journey, wherever it may take you.
Suggested donations are $20, no one will be turned away for financial reasons.
The clinic is open Fridays from 11:30a-3:30p, closed the third Friday of each month for one hour
between 12:30 and 1:30p for a donation based meditation (which we suggest attending as well!)
First come, first served, walk ins are welcome! Last walk in at 2:45p please.
Veterans Yoga and Acupuncture
We are currently offering combined sessions of Yoga and Acupuncture for Veterans and their families at Vastu Health.
Many Veterans suffer from PTSD, addiction disorders and stress/anxiety associated with their time in service. Acupuncture
and calming Restorative Yoga can help to soothe the sympathetic nervous system and provide a balance to the mind/body and spirit. The Yoga class is from 11am - 12pm every Tuesday and Acupuncture is from 12pm-12:30pm.
All classes and acupuncture are free for Veterans and their families.
We hope to see you!
Prana Qi Workshops
Prana Qi workshops combine the restoring benefits of Yoga with the ancient healing of Acupuncture, and the sacred sounds of healing singing bowls. The restorative yoga is with Aura Lehrer, the acupuncture is with Nicole Olsen. Aura and Nicole will both share in the playing of bowls. Workshops are an hour and a half held at Vastu Health, on the last Sunday of every month. Workshops are 40$ per session.
