Can Acupuncture Help My Anxiety?

Can Acupuncture Help My Anxiety?

Beverly Hills Acupuncture at Tannenbaum Chiropractic

Acupuncture eases anxiety by regulating the nervous system, balancing the autonomic nervous system, and bringing the body into a relaxed state. This helps the sympathetic nervous system work to release the tension held when the body is in fight or flight.

The practice of acupuncture helps to release blocked energy, allowing it to rebalance, return to places it was not reaching, or release from points in the body that were storing excess energy. At Tannenbaum Chiropractic, we can help you pinpoint your anxiety symptoms and possible sources and help you find relief.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine, wherein practitioners treat the body with a holistic, whole-system approach. This type of alternative treatment may also include recommendations for:

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Psychotherapy
  • Phytotherapy (herbs and plant medicine)

In traditional Chinese medicine, the belief is that the physical and mental aspects of the patient are tied together, while Western medicine may not treat both the physical and mental.

Within the practice of Chinese Medicine, anxiety is considered a “Yin Deficiency”, indicating issues relating to emotion, including anxiety, night sweats, tension, and depression. Rebalancing the Yin energy in the body will help to create less resistance, reduce symptoms associated with anxiety, and help the body maintain balance once treatment is complete.

Where are Acupuncture Needles Placed for Anxiety?

Needle placement is based on the symptoms each patient expresses and the main causes for concern. Placement is typically based on where the pain or discomfort is located, which indicates which of the meridians is affected. Once these points of pain or tension are located and the meridian is established, the acupuncturists get to the root of the problem and can better understand how your body manifests your anxiety.

Several points are linked to anxiety symptoms, including:

  • Between the eyebrows
  • Inside of the wrists
  • On the feet
  • Along the breastbone
  • Along the ears

When your body is ready for needle placement, shorter needles are placed on points on the face and ears, while longer needles are placed on the back, backside, and other areas.
