A client recently commented they were embarrassed to seek help for still feeling anxiety from trauma they experienced during the Tornado that struck Joplin on May 22, 2011.

We are fortunate to have a therapist in Joplin who works with the process EMDR. Her name is Rachal Bales, MA, LMFT and she is located at the Ozark Center - Freeman Medical Plaza - 530 East 34th Street - Phone: 417.347.7530
I personally have not seen Rachal myself but see several clients who have and they are very pleased with the EMDR process. She does have a two week waiting list so be sure to call in advance.
Have you ever want to try Acupuncture?
have studied acupressure in massage school and I believe it to be a
very powerful modality. Some people utilize needles to treat trigger
points which can be very helpful while others use needles in precise
locations that will affect the energy flowing through the meridians of
the body based on traditional Chinese medicine and philosophy.
If you have ever wanted to try a good acupuncturist who understands traditional Chinese medicine theories and Chinese philosophy ( Chi, Yin and Yang, the Five elements, and the Chinese Organ system), which are fundamentally distinct from that of western medicine, I recommend Aimings Acupuncture.
I have personally tried acupuncture from Aiming and it was very helpful. We are fortunate to have her here in the Joplin area.
