Hitting the most appropriate and most effective treatment to Calm is not an easy task. That is why we are determined to find out about any of the classic, conventional, traditional or alternative treatments that can help us in this fight against anxiety.
And one of those techniques that are perfect to accompany conventional medical treatments for anxiety is acupuncture. With the endorsement of millennia of practice, acupuncture is revealed as a natural medicine capable of solving problems of stress, anxiety and depression.
Acupuncture for anxiety
Like all oriental therapies, acupuncture is based on a conception of the global body, on the need to restore a healthy energy flow, on facilitating the balance between body and mind, since it is this balance that determines our quality of life.
Acupuncture consists of the puncture, by means of needles, of the key points in the body so that the energy works again in the correct way. Although it came to the West as a method to cure pain and at first raised many suspicions, today, the World Health Organization itself considers it an effective technique to treat numerous diseases, including depression, stress and anxiety.
Acupuncture does not make that Western distinction between physical disorders and mental disorders. For this reason, anxiety is a problem linked to certain organs of the body such as the spleen, kidneys or the heart. It is these problems in the different internal organs that are noted in the form of anxiety symptoms such as dizziness, insomnia, fear or excessive worry.
Anxiety points in acupuncture
Acupuncture treatment for anxiety will focus on releasing energy from the spleen, kidneys and heart, which are what cause nervousness, fear and insecurity. In addition, auricular acupuncture, that is, in the ear area, is a very effective technique to achieve the relaxation we need.
Logically, the success of the treatment for anxiety with acupuncture will depend largely on the person who receives it. Since acupuncture must be accompanied by psychological treatment, which teaches us to manage anxiety and a change in daily habits.
Among the benefits of acupuncture treatment are its zero side effects and the immediacy of its results. Generally, after an acupuncture session of about 30 minutes, we begin to feel more relaxed and in better spirits. But as we always warn in these cases, looking for a competent acupuncture professional and not a magician of happiness will determine the final success of the treatment.
