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.

Thousands of Patients Treated Nationwide, many in Tennessee

More than 80% of our patients find relief from their PTSD symptoms.

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.
For the first time in a long time I was able to interact with people and feel this warmth again. Now I just find so much pleasure in interaction.
I’m so glad I got this done. I feel like a veil has been lifted...I feel like I can see things for what they actually are now...
It was like a film was taken off. I’m seeing the world in a different way.
