Yoga is known to help relieve stress and tension and calm the body and mind. As a hollistic approach to stress relief and physical fitness, it can be especially beneficial for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), other mental health issues, improve mobility, and help relieve muscle tension.
Pain medications, including opioids, often have limited efficacy and may impose unwanted adverse effects. The Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration have expressed interest in nonpharmacologic interventions including acupuncture.
Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine that produces a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. During the guided meditation sessions, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. This process results in an enhanced physical and emotional well-being for veterans.
Come out and mix with other veterans from all eras, every 3rd Friday of each month at the New City Library. Our monthly social event is a great way to get connected, find friends, build a network in our community. Come join us and become a part of the PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Community.
We can’t wait to see you at one of our events!
