Traditional Chinese medicine centers on physical and mental balance. Emotions like stress, anger, fear, or even excitement can cause seemingly unrelated physical symptoms to manifest. TCM assesses your symptoms and, through taking into account the connectedness of your mind and body, helps you get back on the right track.
The experience of acupuncture for anxiety & Stress is relaxing and peaceful. Acupuncture calms the nervous system and regulates neurotransmitters making it an appropriate treatment for a variety of mental health concerns.
These are the conditions we treat,
- Stress, Anxiety & Depression
- Insomnia & Sleep Disorders
- Quitting Smoking & Alcohol Addiction
- Other Stress related Symptoms
For some people this may be acute or chronic stress over a career change, ending a relationship or dealing with family matters. On the flip side, many people seek acupuncture when change has been thrust upon them unexpectedly and they are having trouble adjusting – for example, loss of a job or grieving the death of a loved one. In circumstances like these, people commonly report feeling depressed or anxious. It’s also not uncommon for us to hear patients talk about ongoing stress after a traumatic event.
These issues often coincide with other complaints such as poor quality sleep or insufficient quantity of sleep, digestive upset, palpitations, nausea, tight muscles and others. Acupuncture sessions and Chinese Herbal Medicine address these issues as a holistic treatment to improve your ability to manage your emotional and mental health. Since emotions affect us all differently, the more honest and reflective information you can give us about your general health the better we can tailor a plan to suit you.
We are happy to work alongside other health professionals such as psychiatrists, counsellors, psychologists and your GP. Mental and emotional health takes time so we encourage people to utilise acupuncture for anxiety & stress on a regular and consistent basis as part of an overall wellbeing plan.
