In traditional Chinese medicine, we relate anxiety disorders back to an imbalance of energy, or Qi, which we believe to be derived from the Zang Organs. The Zang Organs all come back to the heart, which stores the spirit (emotions) and can be affected by any Zang Organ imbalance. Anxiety disorders generally come from the kidneys, which produce fear, or the lungs for general anxiety. When the flow of Qi between these organs and the heart is interrupted, the result is an unbalanced, anxiety-ridden emotional state.
As a way to combat this imbalance for people with anxiety in Bryn Mawr, PA, we offer integrative acupuncture solutions. With our acupuncture treatments, we will restore your energy/Qi’s ability to flow within the Zang Organs and restore emotional balance.
In recent years, there have been numerous studies assessing the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating anxiety disorders. Studies from The Anxiety and Depression Association of America have shown that there is a strong positive correlation between the use of acupuncture and the treatment anxiety disorders.
Another study in 2015, while small, displayed the functionality of acupuncture over 12 weeks on individuals who had a negative or neutral reaction to traditional psychotherapy or medication. The participants showed a significant reduction in anxiety in relation to the acupuncture treatments up to 10 weeks after the study was complete
While research is excellent at signifying the potential applications of a procedure for a specific issue, it’s easy to still feel skeptical about a methodology that is traditionally non-Western. You don’t need to hear it from us. Here’s what one of our patients said about our therapies:
- “My life has become calmer, my mind sharper, and my creativity more abounding.” - Christine
We’ve had many patients with stories similar to Christine. With our implementation of an acupuncture regiment, you too can experience the immense benefits of a clearer mind, diminished symptoms of anxiety, and a rebalanced energy/Qi.
