In Chinese Medicine excessive, prolonged, and suppressed emotions cause patterns of disharmony and disease in the body. Over time, these imbalances can lead to pain and tension, anxiety, depression. as well as potential illness or disease. Depending on the presentation and severity of each patient, we can clear and resolve these stuck emotions in one session or a number of sessions. Most patients feel a big relief and shift after a session, and say they feel like themselves again. This awareness helps them be more proactive in managing and nurturing their stress and emotional health in the future. I have done a number of continuing education classes on this subject since stress is such a large factor of disease in our culture. Here are some common emtional conditions acupuncture can help with.
