Trauma Causes a Physical Change to the Brain, and it Can be Treated

Stella relieves symptoms of PTSD with the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB), a widely studied and highly effective procedure that can “reset” the brain’s overactivity to its pre-trauma state.

 

Stella’s SGB Treatment was Built on a Life Changing Understanding of PTSD

  1. 1 The brain’s fight or flight response can become “stuck” in high gear after experiencing trauma.
  2. 2 This can cause an injury to the brain, resulting in symptoms of PTSD like hypervigilance, insomnia, and irritability.
  3. 3 Stella’s SGB procedure, the Dual Sympathetic Reset, appears to treat this injury, potentially relieving even the worst symptoms within minutes.

I feel there’s still a general calm, which is really nice. I haven’t felt that way - I don’t even really know what to do with myself because I don’t know if I’ve ever felt that level of calm in my brain.
