Anxiety, depression, worry, sadness, anger, fear…and the list goes on. Our emotions are often our worst enemies. In Chinese Medicine, every emotion is linked to an organ/channel system. For example, when the Liver system is off-balance, we are prone to anger, irritability, frustration and depression. When the Spleen system is depleted, we may worry, think too much, or have obsessive-compulsive thoughts. Sadness and grief predominate if the lungs are out of whack. 

Chinese medicine beautifully BALANCES & HARMONIZES body, mind & spirit. Most people report feeling happier and calmer after acupuncture, and those feelings last, especially after several treatments as the benefits of acupuncture are cumulative. 

Acupuncture research has shown increased serotonin, a neurotransmitter that calms and elevates mood. Serotonin can alleviate anxiety, depression, stress, sugar cravings, and insomnia. It can also help with weight control and addiction. 

Functional Medicine can also BOOST EMOTIONAL WELLNESS! When adrenal hormones (cortisol and DHEA) are depleted or low, we feel physically exhausted, which can lead to depression. When cortisol levels are unstable (rising and falling drastically throughout the day), our moods reflect that chaos with irritability and anxiety. Using adrenal testing, we measure the stress hormones and correct imbalances in order to create more energy, stable moods, and a general sense of well-being.
