Many people suffer from anxiety, stress, and/or depression.
In Chinese medicine, it is believed that these conditions occur when Yin and Yang are at an imbalance.
An imbalance can lead to toxic heat in the body and an imbalance of hormones that make the body prone to strong emotional changes.
It is also believed that the body is experiencing a blockage that blocks out good energy and leads you to be out of tune with your body and environment.
Chinese medicine works to balance your body and treat the root of the problem. No two patients are the same, as Chinese medicine caters to each patient individually for the best outcomes.
Traditional medication can only mask the symptoms while taking the medication, and cause negative adverse effects.
Mental health can greatly improve with Chinese medicine because it improves overall body function as well. Chinese medicine can balance the body by using methods such as Chinese herbs, acupuncture, and cupping.
Once the body is in balance, there is no longer a need for medication and Chinese medicine benefits your overall health!
Stress Management by TCM and Acupuncture
TCM is based on the philosophy that the body, mind, and spirit are inextricably linked. It is only in recent years that Western science has begun to acknowledge the connection between the emotions and our physical health. In TCM, we always look at the whole person. If the emotions are out of balance, the body’s functions will be, too. Keep in mind that without a spirit, the body is nothing more than a container: a box. Likewise, if the body is not healthy, the spirit doesn’t have a good home to live in. That is why we treat stress, emotional fluctuations, and balance the body’s organ systems all at the same time with acupuncture.
Acupuncture is one great way to help you manage your stress and protect you from permanent health damage. Even though you may not be able to avoid stress, you do have the power to manage stress better so that it can’t build up, hurt you internally, and turn into serious health issues.
