Stress & Anxiety
No one lives in a vacuum. At some point, we will all face a crisis of some sort – job loss, illness, death, or another form of trauma. Unfortunately, it’s unavoidable. So are the affects of trauma on the mind and the body.
Many of us will experience the physical results of emotional distress at some point in time. For some of us, it will be a response to outside stimulus. For others, it will be influenced by how the brain releases chemicals into the body. Emotional distress can manifest as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, lack of appetite, binge behavior, outbursts, nightmares or night terrors, and more. How you think, feel, act, and relate to others can all be affected.
In many cases, recovery is possible, and acupuncture can help. Each person experiences depression, OCD, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, and other physical manifestations of emotional imbalance differently. At Affinity Acupuncture, we treat the whole person in a manner specific to their individual needs. You may find that acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine alone relieves your symptoms, or that it works well in conjunction with other treatments, as well. For instance, recent studies show that adding acupuncture to medications and psychotherapy in the treatment of PTSD shows better results than drugs and counseling alone.
Our goal is to help you feel better. Affinity Acupuncture is a place where you can safely speak openly and honestly about how you feel both physically and emotionally without judgment. Call us today to learn more about how acupuncture, massage therapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help you meet your wellbeing goals.
