Krav Maga training emphasizes easy to learn techniques that have been battle tested in real, life threatening confrontations. This program stresses fighting under worst-case conditions or from disadvantaged positions. The goal of this program  is to not only help survivors feel like they can protect themselves but feel empowered. www.charlestonkravmaga.com

  • Acupuncture for PTSD

Acupuncture addresses physical and mental health conditions simultaneously. The therapeutic effects happen quickly and can last a long time. Immediate effects include a sense of well being and relaxation, reduced anxiety and depression, and improved sleep. These simple acupuncture treatments can have a transformative effect without requiring the traumatized client to talk. www.summervillecommunityacupuncture.com
