Get the Most Out of Acupuncture for Anxiety
Is anxiety getting the best of you? When it’s starting to affect how you get on during the day, it’s time to find another solution. Herbal teas, meditation, yoga, and prescribed medications are not always effective. Acupuncture therapy, on the other hand, can work in conjunction with them to improve your emotional health and well-being.
Acupuncture is one of many special treatments at Advanced Spine & Sports Medicine. It is a natural, effective therapy that:
- Will reduce your heart rate
- Release feel-good hormones (endorphins)
- Gets your body out of fight or flight mode
- Lowers levels of cortisol
- Works to regulate the autonomic nervous system
- Alters mood and sleeping patterns
For centuries, acupuncture has been a holistic method of healing. The Chinese-influenced treatment is a clinically effective way to combat anxiety. Studies show people are feeling higher rates because of new covid variants, wearing masks, and not knowing what to expect in the next year across the U.S. Unfortunately, there is still no normalcy in sight.
We can assure you that acupuncture will help you through your dizzy spells, palpitations, panic attacks, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) if you have extreme anxiety. Anxiety is a condition in which your body builds up too much Qi or energy. During treatment, each needle we insert will release and re-adjust the flow of Qi to help your body relax.
Keep in mind that this is an individualized treatment. We will compose a plan that is unique and beneficial to you, as anxiety impacts everyone differently. We often encourage our patients to book 6 to 8 sessions for treatment. While you’ll see a significant change in your health after the first chiropractic session, it will take some time for your body to re-adjust and anxiety to respond to acupuncture.
