STRESS, ANXIETY AND ACUPUNCTURE
We all want to be more productive, relaxed and comfortable mentally and physically in our daily activities a home, work and play. Today’s fast paced world and mountains of expectations put upon us by others as well as by ourselves and our life situations often makes it very difficult to find equilibrium and balance and find ongoing inner calm.
Stress and anxiety are huge problems in today’s world. Stress symptoms may be affecting your health, even though you might not realize it. You may think illness is to blame for that irritating headache, your frequent insomnia or your decreased productivity at work. But stress may actually be the cause.
Chinese medicine classifies the cause of a specific mental disorder like stress according to how much different systems within us have been disturbed and how its Qi or energy is affected. The flow of Qi or energy can be interrupted by several factors, including anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief.
