Did you know that 1 in 4 people in the United States experience anxiety or depression? This means approximately 40 million people are affected by these emotional disorders. Unfortunately only 10% of these people seek help and receive proper treatment. There are noteworthy medications for treatment but their possible side effects make many people consider alternative forms of treatment such as acupuncture.
The American lifestyle of “more is better” has been taxing on our mental health. Some of us choose to work hard and play hard until exhaustion. Others tend to continually worry about insignificant details and ultimately – the uncontrollable. In addition, with the latest technology, we are constantly inundated with social media and never do we just relax and unwind. This demanding lifestyle and lack of adequate rest causes the mind and the body to become overwhelmed and congested which leaves the door wide open for anxiety and/or depression to plague the mind.
Acupuncture can help by creating a deep state of relaxation during the treatment, ultimately healing the mind and the body. Combining acupuncture with Chinese herbs makes this alternative medicine extremely effective in increasing energy and healing from the inside out. The treatments and herbs restore energy and balance which create feelings for rejuvenation and relaxation, leaving those feelings of anxiety and/or depression in the past.
