When working with patients experiencing anxiety or stress, I begin by looking at everything going on with you and your body. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine look at the mind and body as a whole. I will ask you questions about exactly how anxiety affects you then I will review other aspects of your health like your digestion, headaches, sleep quality, muscle pains and energy levels. Many of these questions may seem unrelated, but everything is related in acupuncture. My goal will be to get rid of the anxiety you are currently experiencing and prevent these symptoms from reoccuring. My patients who come for acupuncture treatment for anxiety are amazed that many of their other health issues start to get better as well.
Anti-anxiety medication may initially seem like a nice, quick fix but in reality it is merely a band-aid, masking the symptoms you are having but never addressing the underlying reasons you are experiencing anxiety, panic or depression in the first place. Plus, as many people are now beginning to realize, the side effect of anti-depressants can be just as bad as the anxiety itself. I see many patients who tell me the side effects were so bad that they are now trying to just tough it out and manage their anxiety the best they can on their own. They did not know what else to try so they turned to acupuncture.
Often patients who come to get acupuncture for anxiety start to see substantial improvement with as little as 2 to 4 weekly acupuncture treatments. Before each treatment we will talk about what results you experienced from the previous treatment and how long those results lasted, plus take into account how you currently feel. Then I will tweak the acupuncture treatment if necessary. Each acupuncture treatment builds on the previous. Often in as little as 12 treatments my patients are feeling a major shift. Once you feel that shift, we go from weekly to bi-weekly then to monthly treatments. The goal will be to get you to where you no longer need acupuncture treatments or at the very least they only need tune-up treatments once or twice a year.
Anxiety disorders can affect anyone at any age. If you are suffering from panic attacks or intense anxiety, whether due to trauma, PTSD, stress, excessive worry, or struggling with an anxiety disorder, I hope you will contact me for help and discover a life that has more balance.
