Why Acupuncture Works for Anxiety Relief?
Not just for pain, acupuncture is a natural way to treat anxiety. It works faster than therapy and keeps you away from drug. You might think acupuncture is for hipsters who don’t believe in Western medicine or for your aging parent with chronic back pain, but a growing body of research shows that acupuncture can help treat a condition that affects everyone from time to time: anxiety.
Managing severe anxiety can be tricky because it generally includes therapy, which might not provide results for months, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. What’s more, it can require anxiety medication, which can have serious side effects. Yet when acupuncture for anxiety is effective, symptoms lessen after the first few visits, and the practitioners are confident it attacks the problem at its roots.
Patients asked “I heard acupuncture can help relieve stress, but how many treatments do you need?” Usually you will feel relief of stress after 1-3 treatments, about 10 treatments can accumulate the effects and adjust the threshold of stress.
