Free Your Mind from Mental Trauma

Overcome the physical symptoms of trauma and discover a new sense of calm.

What is a Dual Sympathetic Block?

Dual sympathetic Blocks offer relief from the physical weight of mental trauma.

8 million people in the U.S. suffer from symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Mental trauma can leave invisible, yet physically debilitating injuries that can make managing everyday life and relationships almost impossible.  

Dual Sympathetic Blocks, also known as Stellate Ganglion Blocks (SGB), address the biological reactions caused by trauma, giving people a new chance to move through their life untethered by constant distress.

What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?

The CDC defines a traumatic event as an experience marked by a sense of horror, helplessness, serious injury or the threat of serious injury or death—and anyone who lives through an event like this can develop PTSD. 

Trauma affects up to 8 million people in the U.S. each year, and current research suggests 50% of people who experience severe trauma do not seek care.

People with PTSD are 9.8x more likely to die by suicide.

Common Questions

Dual Sympathetic Blocks complement psychotherapy. By giving your nervous system a chance to reset, the Block can actually help patients break through barriers in their talk and cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. 

Most patients do not report pain during the procedure. If you’re worried, we can administer Twilight Sedation.

Following treatment, some patients experience some eyelid droopiness, redness, and congestion. Don’t worry—these are actually good signs, as they indicate that the sympathetic nervous system has been successfully reset. These effects typically diminish within 8 hours of treatment.
