Acupuncture and Anxiety

Only a few people know how effective acupuncture can be for anxiety. Anxiety is caused by a heart energy deficiency in Chinese medicine. Many acupuncture points treat anxiety.  In fact, most acupuncture points will calm you down.  They increase the energy balance in your body and “pull down energy” from your head, so they can be very calming.

Acupuncture Facelifts

Wrinkles are caused by tight muscles and saggy skin.  Tight muscles that are tight because they are tense can cause the deep wrinkles that make you look like you are angry all the time.  Acupuncture can make those muscles relax and iron out your face.   Acupuncture relaxes muscles.  Tight muscles can cause pain or wrinkles.  You usually see a difference after one treatment.

Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture is an acupuncture that is done on the ear.  Your ear is a “microcosm” of your body.  That means your entire body can be treated from your ear.  Your ear, being close to your brain, is very neurologically active.  Ear acupuncture is often used to help people get off drugs.  The acupuncture is done on certain NADA approved points to relieve addiction cravings.  There are many acupuncture/drug treatment clinics in the world.

The same way acupuncture treats drug addiction, it can treat cigarette addiction.

Acupuncture and Back Pain

Often, low back pain is caused by muscle spasms.  Your back gets very tight and acupuncture relaxes the muscles to make the pain go away.  There are acupuncture points on the low back that relax your paraspinous muscles.

Acupuncture and Libido

Libido problems are often caused by a kidney deficiency. You will need a diagnosis. If you have libido problems, please see an acupuncturist.  These types of problems are usually caused by an underlying imbalance and can be treated.

Acupuncture and Depression

Depression can be caused by so many things.  A thyroid deficiency is a common cause of depression.  Please see an acupuncturist if you are depressed.  

Acupuncture and Insomnia

Acupuncture can effectively treat insomnia.  Insomnia has a cause.  There is something in your body that is out of balance that causes you to lose sleep. Typically, you either have a problem falling asleep or a problem staying asleep.  Sometimes you have both.  A problem falling asleep is often associated with a spleen and heart energy and blood deficiency.  You heart and spleen can weaken over time and cause palpitations, anxiety and insomnia.  You should have an acupuncturist diagnose you for this.

Acupuncture can strengthen and regulate your digestion.  There are points on the body that actually make your digestion stronger and regulate your stomach and intestines.
