Stress and Emotional Health
When we are healthy and stress is temporary, we recover quickly and our body stays in balance. However when the stress is extreme or lasts a long time, our emotional and physical health suffers. Chinese medicine recognizes the relationship between our physical body and our emotions. Physical symptoms affect the emotions and emotional upset causes physical symptoms.
Stress is a major cause of many of the emotional imbalances that people suffer from today in our fast paced lives. Acupuncture and herbs can bring lasting balance to those suffering from stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, sleep disturbances, palpitations, hormone imbalances, tension headaches, addictions, eating disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Mood-elevating medications can mask the problem and cause unwanted side effects while claiming to alleviate symptoms. Acupuncture not only has an immediate effect of calming the mind and relaxing the body but it also breaks the cycle of imbalance. Acupuncture increases the production of endorphins and other neurotransmitters that are important to emotional balance. With diet changes, acupuncture and herbal medicine you can find a peaceful focused emotional balance.
