Soft Reboot Wellness has launched a new program that uses the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) procedure to treat a range of otherwise treatment-resistant conditions associated with PTSD and anxiety.

To treat a variety of difficult conditions, the SGB procedure “reboots” the client’s sympathetic nervous system response, using an injection of local anesthesia. The new treatment is offered as an outpatient procedure that takes about 15 minutes to complete, though the entire appointment can take as long as 45 minutes.
SGB treatments have been used safely in the United States for nearly a century, though until recently they have been primarily used to treat chronic pain. Since 2007, the SGB procedure has been used to treat a growing range of conditions, including PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
Though SGB treatments have not been found to cure these conditions, many clients report feeling relief for weeks or months between sessions, for conditions that did not respond to traditional medications. Soft Reboot Wellness also offers ketamine infusions, either separately or in combination with SGB treatments, that have also been shown to help with a variety of difficult-to-manage conditions.
Clients are encouraged to plan a ride home after their appointment because, while side effects from the procedure are temporary, they can affect a client’s ability to drive. The most common side effects often fade within the first few hours, but may include a drooping eyelid, redness of the eye, or a constricted pupil on the same side as the injection site.

All treatments from Soft Reboot Wellness are safe and administered by trained professionals. SGB is always administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist, with expert knowledge of the specific local anesthetics used in the procedure.
A spokesperson for Soft Reboot Wellness explained, “Today, SGB is a routine treatment at VA hospitals that has brought PTSD relief to thousands of veterans. In fact, the VA’s success has led more doctors to offer or recommend SGB to patients suffering from persistent PTSD symptoms.”
