anxiety and acupunctureAnxiety and acupuncture go hand in hand. Acupuncture is very effective for anxiety. Acupuncture calms the mind as the brain releases endorphins and other opioid like chemicals during acupuncture treatment. Typically, if a patient comes into our clinic anxious, they will leave with a sense of calm.

You will feel free of anxiety after acupuncture treatment. In the beginning, the anxiety may disappear for a few days after treatment. But after multiple acupuncture treatments, your anxiety and stress will continually diminish, bringing you great joy and an increase in your quality of life and all your relationships.
