Acupuncture and Anxiety
Acupuncture is very useful in the treatment of emotional conditions, and this aspect is one that has been celebrated over the millennia in China. Fundamentally Chinese medicine views the mind and body as a coherent whole, with no obvious separation from one aspect to another. Treatment for emotional conditions consequently are very much part of the usual flow of Chinese medicine and I recommend in particular using acupuncture to address the condition of anxiety and its related feelings.
Anxiety is the most common emotional condition that I see in the clinic. Anxiety may also relate to feelings of not being able to cope with stressful situations, which at its most strong may come out as panic attacks. Acupuncture may help alleviate the feeling of distress often present with anxiety, may help improve sleep and give the person valuable self-help tools to allow them to manage their life, along with its usual stresses and strains.
Many people find that the treatment of anxiety and stress by acupuncture to be actually quite revolutionary in their lives, and may wish to make their acupuncture treatment a long-term thing which supports them as they go through their lives.
