Feelings of Anxiousness and/or Depression
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, including Chinese herbs, can be used to help combat feelings of anxiousness or depression.
Symptoms of both anxiety and depression that acupuncture and Chinese medicine may be able to help with include:
- Trouble coping with daily tasks
- Lack of motivation
- Difficulty sleeping
- Imbalance in energy levels (either feeling overly fatigued or having difficulty calming down)
- Affected appetite
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Physical feelings of anxiety (racing heart, tightness in chest, dizziness, etc.)
- Muscle tension
In more mild cases Chinese medicine may alleviate these feelings, while in moderate to severe or clinical presentations of anxiety and depression, Chinese medicine can be used in conjunction with other therapies.
