Anxiety & Depression
It is common for people to experience a constant low grade anxiety, mild depression, or both. Acupuncture moves the qi (energy) of the body and gives us a tangible experience of being peaceful and relaxed.
Each of the organ systems in Chinese medicine has an emotion related to it. For example, when the liver is not moving smoothly in the body, people often feel angry or frustrated. When the kidneys don’t have enough qi, people tend to feel anxious and fearful. Acupuncture helps strengthen organs that contribute to feeling more relaxed. If you are seeking acupuncture for a physical ailment, we can also address any emotional concerns you may have as well.
