Anxiety/Mood

Anxiety/Mood
"Rigorous studies show that acupuncture positively influences Heart Rate Variability which measures the balance of the autonomic nervous system. A healthy autonomic nervous system means physiological, emotional, and hormonal well-being."
Chung, Evidence-Based Complementary/Alternative Med. 2014
 
Modern research has shown that the central nervous system and the gut biome have a pivotal impact on our emotional well-being. The two primary aspects of the central nervous system are the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest), and the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight). When these twin aspects of our being are properly adapted and re-educated to be more balanced, our mood is also more balanced and manageable. Acupuncture has been shown in studies to help regulate these aspects of our nervous system, as well as positively influence gut microbiota. 
 
Clinically patients report feeling a major shift in their mood sometimes after just one treatment. After continuous long-term acupuncture, many patients report a complete improvement in their stress, anxiety, and mood from before acupuncture treatment.
 
We also have experience in helping patients reduce, minimize, or altogether stop using mood-altering pharmaceuticals such as Xanax through acupuncture and herbal medicine.
 
If you or someone you know is suffering from anxiety, stress, or needs support for their mood, please don't hesitate to call and make an appointment today.
