What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture refers to the use of small needles to stimulate specific areas of your body and improve the energy flow throughout your body. It uses ancient Chinese techniques, as well as modern strategies, to encourage your body to heal and recover from stressful situations.
Traditionally, the treatment focused on improving energy flow by balancing different elements within the body at points of intersection, or meridians. The goal of treatment is addressing the cause of your symptoms rather than focusing on the symptoms.
Impact of Treatment on Anxiety
Acupuncture has a large impact on anxiety because it helps your body relax, improves the flow of energy throughout your body and addresses the cause of your symptoms. The treatment focuses on the heart and kidney areas when addressing anxiety disorders or general feelings of anxiety and stress.
In studies regarding the impact of the treatment on anxiety, researchers discovered that electrical acupuncture treatments cause a measurable difference in the stress hormones. Furthermore, studies comparing the treatment to traditional treatments for anxiety, such as counseling and cognitive therapy, showed that acupuncture actually helps at the same rate. When combined with traditional anxiety treatments, studies show a profound difference in anxiety levels and responses, even when individuals are under stress.
