San Francisco SGB Treatments: Effective For Long Covid-Related Depression

Aug 2, 2023

Long COVID is now associated with several mental health difficulties. If you’re experiencing such symptoms in the sider San Francisco Bay Area, the SGB therapy from Soft Reboot Wellness (+1 650-419-3330) could help.

The 24/7 news cycle has totally forgotten about COVID, but if you’re one of the millions who suffer from long COVID, it could still have a huge impact on your life.

Mental health problems are among the symptoms you could experience, and Soft Reboot Wellness now offers the revolutionary treatment known as Stellate Ganglion Block.

This is a solution designed to help address some of the psychological symptoms associated with long COVID, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and PTSD. The service is directed by Dr. Sara Herman, a board-certified cardiac anesthesiologist with over 12 years’ experience.

The recent update comes as SGB attracts more attention for its potential as a fast-acting, safe, and effective approach to treating a variety of mental health issues. With the longer-term impacts of COVID now becoming more apparent, Soft Reboot Wellness is making the program available to clients in the wider San Francisco Bay Area.

A recent advisory notice from the US Department of Health and Human Services highlights the significant mental health impacts of long COVID. The department identifies several conditions that can occur, including fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety, psychosis, cognitive impairment, OCD, and PTSD.

Soft Reboot Wellness offers cutting-edge SGB therapy as an alternative to more traditional medications, such as SNRI or SSRI antidepressants. The clinic’s programs are conducted in a medically controlled environment, with treatments being individually tailored to the needs of each patient.

"A stellate ganglion block, or SGB, is an injection of a common local anesthetic near a cluster of nerves in the neck called the stellate ganglion," explains the clinic. "The out-patient procedure, which usually takes about 15 minutes, is used to ease the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma-associated mood disorders - and we have seen it work for our patients with depression, including depression associated with long COVID."

About Soft Reboot Wellness

Clinic founder Dr. Sara Herman began to study the applications of psychedelic medicine following her own experience with mental health problems when being treated for breast cancer in 2017. Since that time, Dr. Herman has undertaken extensive training with the California Institute of Integral Studies, The Ketamine Training Center, The Integrative Psychiatry Institute, and The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine.

“I’ve seen Dr. Sara at Soft Reboot Wellness approximately 10 times for ketamine treatments,” one client recently stated. “The office is very nice, calm, and welcoming, and Dr. Sara is the best doctor I’ve ever seen. She stays with you throughout the whole session and monitors your vitals. For me, it’s like a mental and emotional reset with a different perspective of the things, situations, and questions in my life.”
