Both the physical and emotional aspects of a human being are treated with acupuncture and herbs. In fact, according to Chinese medical philosophy, most “internal” conditions are caused by our emotions. This does not mean we are angry for a few minutes and we get sick. It means that we all have certain emotions that have been predominant for most of our lives, and eventually this can lead to an imbalance which might cause stress, depression, anxiety or other emotional issues. Acupuncture relieves the symptoms of stress as it helps release endorphins and other hormones which positively effect our emotions.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be helpful for the following health concerns:
- Panic attacks
- Insomnia, sleep disturbances
- Grief, sadness
- Moodiness associated with PMS and menopause
- Muscle stress and pain
- Stress or tension headaches
