Help for Painful Trigeminal Neuralgia

Emmanuel Birstein is a skilled and gifted practitioner and healer at PIMH. His extensive training in craniosacral therapy and his broad anatomical knowledge lends to his high success rate in relieving pain and dysfunction. Emmanuel has a particular insight into the role of the trigeminal nerve not only in neuropathic pain, but as it relates to mental health issues, especially depression and panic disorder.

Recently, a client came in presenting with severe face pain on the right side related to long-term trigeminal neuralgia. After one session with Emmanuel the client reported:

"The day after, I felt very sleepy and ill at ease. The pain is still there but greatly decreased. What surprised me was the great decrease in my clinical depression."

Treating depression through the gut?

In 2012 the National Institutes of Health completed the first phase of the Human Microbiome Project, a multimillion-dollar effort to catalogue and understand the microbes that inhabit our bodies. Ongoing research since then promises to bring the link between the gut and the brain into clearer focus, especially as it relates to mental health.

Here at PIMH, we offer treatments based on this new understanding of the human "ecosystem." Neural manipulation (manual therapy) has shown significant and sometimes immediate results in treating long-term, chronic depression. 

"I had suffered from depression most of my life.... In my very first appointment [with Emmanuel] my depression was gone."

Integrative Mental Health  is a new and expanding model for treatment of a wide range of mental health conditions. By definition it is the application of both conventional and natural therapies in mental health care. This approach does not exclude pharmaceuticals which have become the primary treatment option over the past several decades. Medication is only one of several options. Here at Pittsburgh Integrative Mental Health (PIMH) we treat the client, not the disease.
We offer individualized approaches that address physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual issues in diagnosis and treatment.
