Acupuncture for Anxiety
Anxiety is an Imbalance of the Spirit
Anxiety can arise for many reasons such as exhaustion, stress, or even changes during menopause. In all cases anxiety is seen as a condition in which the spirit is unable to fully rest and relax. This is why anxiety and insomnia often come together, because they tend to have a common underlying cause.
Acupuncture Can Calm the SpiritThere are many acupuncture points for anxiety, in fact there is an entire category of points specifically for this, and they are found all over the body. One of the most commonly used points for anxiety is yintang, which is located in the middle of the forehead. Because it is so relaxing, this just happens to be the most requested acupuncture point of all. Many people feel the relaxing effects of acupuncture right away, even during their initial treatment. The effect gets stronger and lasts longer wtih each additional treatment, enabling many to reduce or even eliminate the need for prescription medications.
Chinese Herbs Can be Helpful as Well
Taking herbs can enhance the effects of your acupuncture treatments, helping to address symptoms from the inside out. If you are interested in trying some Chinese herbs they come in a convenient pill form and are included with your session at no extra charge. Because it is so common, I carry a few different formulas for anxiety. Each one addresses a different class of common concurrent symptoms, such as insomnia, stress, or exhaustion, making them more specific and effective. These formulas tend to be very mild, such as “suan zao ren wan,” which is based on the seed of the Chinese red date. Please click here to read more about the herbs that I carry.
"I've been coming to the center now for about ten weeks. My life is totally transformed thanks to Nancy and the acupuncture treatments she provides. I spent the better part of five years living with anxiety attacks and the fear of having repeat attacks. Just in the time that I've been seeing Nancy I now can say that I'm completely off my anxiety meds. and my quality of life is 110% better. Not only does Nancy provide an amazing treatment she is also a very amazing person!!" -Jason V. Please click here to read over 130 5-star reviews.
