Why Choose Acupuncture for Anxiety Relief? , Manhattan, New York

For individuals living with anxiety, day-to-day events can be mentally and emotionally draining. While there are different strategies available to help overcome the effects of the problem, people are increasingly seeking natural methods to minimize the use, side effects and dependencies associated with pharmaceuticals. For this reason, many individuals turn to acupuncture for anxiety relief. Below is a brief discussion about how this effective, holistic medical care keeps those negative emotions at bay.  

What Causes Chronic Anxiety?

acupuncture for anxiety NYCEvery day, external factors, many beyond your control, affect your life. When they cause internal stress, the result can manifest in the form of anxiety.  Sufferers feel a panic-inducing loss of control. The stress and anxiety alter the flow of your Qi—the energy force responsible for keeping your wellness on track—leading to persistent anxiety and other health problems as well. In essence, Qi refers to the body’s energy and is responsible for keeping you healthy.  Anxiety causes blockages in the flow of Qi and other internal imbalances.  Acupuncture care helps recreate the free flow of energy and restores balance in your system – mind and body.

How Does Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture helps individuals regain emotional control by harmonizing the Qi and limiting the production of unhealthy stress hormones such as cortisol. In fact, in a study published in the Journal of Endocrinology, acupuncture was shown to effectively block chronic stress-induced biochemical increases in subjects. While an initial series of ongoing treatments yields the best results, it can even deliver benefits in just one session. Moreover, the process is very safe with few, if any, side effects. Those who do experience any, find them to be minimal.
