Emotional Health


Stress can be a normal reaction to certain life events. Appropriate reactions to stress help us to resolve conflict and get things done. However if you feel constantly under pressure, it can take a toll on the body and mind. Constant stress creates frazzled, overwhelmed feelings that can damage your health and lead to mood swings, effect your relationships and disrupt your quality of life.

Depression and Anxiety

Depression and anxiety have varying presentations from person to person. Typically, the more symptoms that are present and the longer they last, the more severe it will become without getting help.

Stress and anxiety cause blockages in the flow of Qi. You may feel these blockages in numerous ways. Acupuncture removes the obstructions that prevent the flow of Qi. It also nourishes aspects of the self that have been depleted by constant emotional strain and gives you the energy and balance needed to function in modern life. When Qi flows smoothly throughout the meridians of your body, it’s able to naturally heal itself.

From looking at this list it may seem that we can help almost anything. The reason for this is that when performed correctly, natural medicine treats the person and not just the disease.

There is a HUGE difference between working towards balancing and strengthening a patient so that his or her entire body is functional & vibrant, versus just trying to alleviate a symptom.
