Classical Five Element Acupuncture to treat Anxiety.

Anxiety is defined as a physiological/psychological state characterized by a 'mood' of fear and feelings of dread that have become overwhelming to an individual and often occur without a triggering stimulus. It is often labeled as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Social Phobia, and/or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Some signs and symptoms of anxiety include: social anxiety, phobias, unexplained fears (especially of dying), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, heart palpitations, excessive worry, overthinking, stress, insomnia, withdrawal, chest pain, headaches, depression, nightmares, and many more.

Typical Treatment:

The standard treatment of Anxiety and related disorders usually involves medication or psychotherapy or both. Doctors typically prescribe antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and/or beta-blockers to control some of the physical symptoms and encourage the anxiety sufferer to enroll in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.

Other natural treatment options:

Acupuncture for anxiety, especially Classical Five Element Acupuncture, can help manage and even eliminate anxiety. Acupuncture for anxiety treatments, in their most simplistic form, are known to increase relaxation, reduce stress and bring the body, mind and spirit back into balance. And, as we know, balance is health.

By utilizing Classical Five Element Acupuncture treatments (a system of medicine that treats the body, mind and the spirit), the cause of a person's anxiety can be uncovered and resolved in a fashion that was originally intended by nature.

Many anxiety suffers seek and receive medical intervention and psychotherapy as noted above. In these cases, Classical Five Element Acupuncture is a great addition to these therapies and when used together can offer synergistic resolution with the goal of reaching a point where the medications can be reduced or even eliminated. Classical Five Element Acupuncture can also be utilized in cases where anxiety sufferers choose not to take medication or not receive psychotherapy or both.
