Acupuncture treatments are performed with the insertion of sterile, fine, metal filiform needles into specific areas of the body. The needles are as tiny as a strand of hair, and the process is painless. There are well-defined pathways throughout your body where your energy circulates. When these pathways become disrupted, you will feel pain or suffer from conditions such as anxiety. Acupuncture works by regulating the pathways that have been disturbed.

Everyone experiences some form of nervousness or anxiety at some point. Sometimes it’s just a flutter of the stomach before speaking, not being able to sleep before a big day, or any of life’s other stressful situations. When these feelings begin to take over your daily life, however, this anxiety condition becomes a disorder. Acupuncture can treat anxiety as a natural form of relief and often works faster than medication alone.

Acupuncture treats more than pain

Acupuncture is not just for chronic back pain or for those who do not believe in Western medicinal practices. Research has shown this treatment can help heal conditions like anxiety. Most therapy methods for severe anxiety disorders are challenging and do not show quick results. Therapies have been known to take months before producing positive results and often require you to take medications. Using acupuncture treatments, coupled with your regular therapy, you can experience faster results and see an improvement within just a few visits.

How acupuncture works against anxiety

There is growing research that supports the effectiveness of acupuncture for anxiety relief. One study conducted on college students showed that those who received this treatment were found to have less anxiety and increased memory function. It is said that circumstances outside of your control can take over your emotions and create symptoms such as anxiety. Acupuncture allows your body to take back that control and reduce the feelings of anxiety. This is achieved when acupuncture slows your body’s production of stress hormones.

The needles are placed half a millimeter from a nerve which, when done correctly, can have the ability to create pain-killing chemicals. The procedure can also jump-start your body’s natural ability to heal on its own, and stimulate the part of the brain that controls your emotions. Acupuncture can help you feel balanced and treat anxiety, among other illnesses.

How you can relieve your anxiety with acupuncture

Acupuncture will help you regulate your body’s chemical balance naturally. These treatments can reduce or eliminate the need for you to use medication, prescription or otherwise. These treatments work much quicker than counseling sessions, where it will take more than one session to begin seeing results. Acupuncture treatments will have you seeing results right away and continue to improve your symptoms with further treatments. Using this therapy alongside your normal treatment routine can increase your results rapidly.

You have nothing to lose in trying acupuncture. There are almost no risks, treatments are pain-free, and the potential benefits are huge. If you are already being treated for anxiety, try an acupuncture session. If you see success and wish to reduce your medication dosage, check with your physician first.
