Doctor Of Chinese Medicine, Best Acupuncture
Emotional and psychological disturbances can be as debilitating as pain or physical disorders. Stress, anxiety and depression are all too common in our multi-tasking, demanding lives. Many have turned to acupuncture as an alternative to mood-altering prescription medication. Traditional Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine views these problems as weaknesses and blockages in the energy or Qi that controls and balances the emotions and consciousness. Five Element Acupuncture treatment is especially effective because it recognizes that our feelings and thoughts are created and balanced by our internal Organs and Meridians. For example, the Heart houses the emotions related to joy, intimacy, laughter, romance and their counter-parts sadness, boundaries, introspection and realism. Often a patient who is depressed and has trouble in intimate relationships will have a weakness or blockage in their Heart meridian and acupuncture can be used specifically to address these imbalances.
