Acupuncture in the treatment of Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Fatigue
Chinese Medicine has always recognized the strong connection between the body, spirit, emotions and mind. They are intertwined and cannot be separated. We all have experienced how emotions affect our physical body. A common and well known example is getting stomach pains and/or cramps when feeling extreme stress, or breaking out into a sweat when nervous. Not only do we know that emotions can have an effect on the body, but it is important to remember that the state of the physical body can affect our emotional health. Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, is a very effective treatment for emotional disorders.
Common conditions treated include:
How many treatments are needed?
1 time per week for 4-6 weeks
Research, and our own experience, has shown that a series of treatments once to twice weekly gives both immediate and long lasting relief. The frequency of the treatment can vary depending on how long you have been experiencing symptoms, and how severe they are.
Acupuncture offers a way to unite the body, mind and spirit so that one can once again find harmony.
