You’re successful. You’re driven. You get sh*t done. You keep it together… No one at work would ever imagine just how anxious you are, underneath it all.
Imagine yourself gliding out of bed in the morning, calm and happy. Steady, even in the face of all the things you need to get done, and all the people who want your time and attention. Really think about it… How many things in your life would get better if you didn’t feel so anxious so often? Your health, your relationships, your job…?
Dealing with your brain jumping from one worried thought to another all day is exhausting and stressful. (I get it, I’ve been there). Maybe you’ve been curious about trying acupuncture to help with stress, but haven’t been entirely sure if it will work. You’re probably (anxiously!) wondering if there’s there any scientific evidence to show that it helps… So, here’s something that may interest you.
A 2018 systematic review of clinical research on acupuncture for anxiety disorders reveals that “there is good scientific evidence for acupuncture therapy to treat anxiety disorders as it yields effective outcomes, with fewer side effects than conventional treatment.”Amorim D, Amado J, Brito I, et al. Acupuncture and electroacupuncture for anxiety disorders: A systematic review of the clinical research. Complement Ther Clin Pract. 2018;31:31–37. doi:10.1016/j.ctcp.2018.01.008
I have over a decade of experience treating anxiety. Whether you’re looking for something to do alongside your medication or therapy, or looking to address it solely with acupuncture and TCM, you’re in good hands.
