Anxiety is a common human emotion that we have all experienced at one time or another. It is the worry, unease or even fear about a possible future misfortune. Chances are you have experienced anxiety firsthand.
Feeling anxious when there is something to be anxious about makes sense. However, when anxiety occurs without reason it can be problematic. Intense worry and fear bringing with it the physical symptoms of accelerated heartbeat and pulse. Sweating, shallow breathing, the inability to focus or concentrate on something other than the fear you are feeling can all be part of it. It’s not fun and it can be debilitating by interfering with daily life and/or causing insomnia.
Those who suffer with anxiety commonly seek out treatment in the form of medication or psychotherapy or a combination of the two. Those options can be successful, but medications often have negative side effects. However, another treatment option is available: acupuncture.
There have been many reports of significantly alleviating anxiety of those who have received acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture works to help calm the mind and body by regulating the nervous system. An acupuncture practitioner inserts needles in specific points to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system that works as a counter-balance by slowing down the heart rate and calming the mind.
