Causes of Anxiety

One TCM theory on anxiety is that a person can have excessive energy, also referred to as heat or energy (Qi), in the head. Anxiety disorders are like other forms of mental illness. They don’t come from personal weakness, character flaws or problems with upbringing. But researchers don’t know exactly what causes anxiety disorders. They suspect a combination of factors plays a role:

  • Chemical imbalance:
    Severe or long-lasting stress can change the chemical balance that controls your mood. Experiencing a lot of stress over a long period can lead to an anxiety disorder.
  • Environmental factors:
    Experiencing a trauma might trigger an anxiety disorder, especially in someone who has inherited a higher risk to start.
  • Heredity:
    Anxiety disorders tend to run in families. You may inherit them from one or both parents, like eye color.

How TCM Addresses Anxiety

Acupuncture can cause the nervous system to create painkilling chemicals, kick-start the body’s natural ability to heal itself, or stimulate the part of the brain that regulates emotions, including anxiety. It helps the nervous system attain balance, thereby alleviating tension and anxiety symptoms..

Acupuncture Results for Anxiety

It’s been reported that acupuncture can give individual rapid results, often working within only one to two sessions. However, like any treatment, results and the number of sessions will vary from person to person.
