Many of us know how counseling can help your emotional well being so below we will discuss how Chinese medicine can help you feel better emotionally. Because Traditional Chinese Medicine views the body holistically, both physical and emotional issues can be treated at the same time. Issues that we can help with:
Anxiety – anxiety attacks and panic attacks are at the very least an annoyance and at the worst
- completely debilitating. Both acupuncture and Chinese herbs work very well at calming the person and acupuncture helps to get at
what lies beneath the anxiety.
Stress often leads to other symptoms like insomnia, sore neck or shoulder, or digestive upset. Treating
stress at the root takes a combination of subtle attitude shifts with energetically (acupuncture) and physically (Chinese herbs)
de-stressing the body.
Depression – according to Chinese medicine, can not exist by itself. Underneath depression there is
always another emotion, often several different emotions. When we say we are depressed, we often mean we are sad or angry or disappointed. Chinese medicine will always look for the root of the “depression,” and attempt to heal at that level, often successfully.
