Acupuncture for Anxiety
Ancient Chinese medicine describes an energy force called Qi (chee) that regulates the body’s overall health. Qi moves throughout the body via pathways like blood in the circulatory system.
When factors such as stress and anxiety disrupt the flow of Qi, health issues follow. While acupuncture has been around for thousands of years, it is a modern method to heal the mind and body, reduce stress, and calm anxiety.
Acupuncture may seem like an outdated concept to some. However, Qi is just a metaphor for our metabolic function or the normal chemical reactions in our bodies. Therefore, acupuncture can restore the balance of Qi, resulting in better overall health.

What is Anxiety?
If you suffer from anxiety, you understand how it makes you feel – tense, nervous, unable to relax, a sense of dread, fearing the worst, issues with sleep, and more.
Stress and trauma are common triggers for many people. It can cause emotional and physical damage to your body.
How Acupuncture for Anxiety Works
People are constantly under stress and pressure, often leading to serious health issues. If you suffer from anxiety, managing it can be challenging. Conventional treatments often include psychotherapy and medication. However, some prescription drugs can have severe side effects and sometimes lead to dependency. So, how does acupuncture for anxiety work?
Acupuncture stimulates specific points to improve health and well-being. Depending on where the needle is placed, acupuncture can cause the nervous system to produce natural painkilling chemicals, the beta-endorphins, and enkephalins in the brain or spinal cord, or stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions.
Acupuncture stimulates the release of norepinephrine, acetylcholine, and several types of opioids, affecting changes and normalizing the autonomic nervous system. It relaxes the body and regulates serotonin in the brain, affecting emotional states.
