“I WILL DEVOTE MY ENERGY TO A LIFETIME OF HEALING THROUGH ACUPUNCTURE”

“THERE WERE FOUR THINGS WHICH THE MASTER TAUGHT—LETTERS, ETHICS, DEVOTION OF SOUL, AND TRUTHFULNESS"
Confucius
(552 B.C.—479 B.C.)








Acupuncture for Anxiety

Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Center has helped numerous patients suffering Anxiety back to recovery.

Anxiety involves intense feelings of fear, worry or apprehension often associated with specific situations, events or objects. The physical symptoms that accompany these feelings include heart palpitations, trembling, sweating, pale skin, dry mouth, dizziness, nausea, stomach aches, diarrhea, fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, or headaches. Someone suffering from anxiety might also experience panic attacks.

How does acupuncture work for Anxiety?

Acupuncture appears to have a balancing effect on brain chemistry. It can help with anxiety and related symptoms. Part of this effect may be from endorphins, but it appears to involve other brain chemicals as well. Nerves "talk" to each other through the use of chemical agents called neurotransmitters. Many of these agents exist, and some of the more well known are serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and GABA. Improving the function of serotonin and GABA has a relaxing/calming effect as well as a mood stabilizing effect.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
