Do You Suffer From Anxiety or Depression?
You’re not alone!
There are over 40 million adults in the US alone dealing with anxiety. We live in a world filled with demands, expectations, changes, and we’re being pulled in many directions. And it can prevent you from living your life - it steals time from your family, takes control of your thoughts, make focusing difficult, and it’s affecting your job performance.
And worse of all, it’s leading to many health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure. Just look at some of the symptoms of anxiety and depression,
- feelings of panic, fear, or worry
- difficulty concentrating and staying focused
- difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
- constant fatigue
- Irritability and shortness
- nausea, headaches, or digestive concerns
- feeling a lack of control
- muscle tension that leads to back pain
You don’t have to live this way, and taking medication isn’t the answer. Medication is simply a band-aid and won’t offer you healing.
We offer an individualized treatment plan that will put you on the path of healing through a combination of Chinese and Functional medicine treatments such as acupuncture and herbal supplements.
There are some things you can start doing right away that might help, such as reducing your caffeine intake, making small changes to your diet, and exercising. But if you’re like most people, it’s nearly impossible to get the drive to accomplish these things.
How Can We Eliminate Your Anxiety & Depression?
We’ve been helping people just like you find relief from the constant fear and worry. Helping them to get back to spending time with their family and friends doing the things they love doing.
We’ll take the time to get to know you on this first visit. We want to understand all of your symptoms, and learn more about your medical history, if you’re taking any medications or heath corners you may have. We’ll also ask about your eating habits and understand your lifestyle. These things help us to better know who you are so that we can help.
In addition, we’ll also perform a physical examination so that we can determine if there’s an underlying cause for your depression and what the best treatment plan is for you. Anxiety and depression can be genetic, a reaction to a recent tragic event, or a side effect from medications that you may already be taking. This is why the first session will take about 30 to 90 minutes to complete. We want to make sure we find the potential cause, whether it’s a side effect from medication, a result of a health condition, or a life situation that is difficult to cope with.
Regardless of the cause, we’ll be able to get you started with the best treatment plan so that you can get back to feeling normal again.
How Can Acupuncture Help Relieve Anxiety & Depression?
Acupuncture is just one of the treatment methods that we’ll use to alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression. It stimulates the nervous systems to release your body’s natural endorphins to help improve your mood. We’ll place the tiny thin needles in specific locations on your body to stimulate the release of these endorphins. These needles are so tiny and hollow that you won’t feel any pain associated with them going in or coming out.
Acupuncture alone is often not enough for chronic illnesses. It’s not a magic pill. This is why most treatment plans include various methods such as herbal supplements, exercise and diet. Herbal supplements and nutritional supplements, such as Kava, Passionflower, and Lavender, can help with your mental health and digestive system giving you an upper hand in managing your depression and anxiety. Both are very important to the treatment plan.
If you’re ready to finally take the first step to getting the help that you need, just give us a call to schedule your appointment and get started. We know how difficult it can be when dealing with anxiety and depression, and you deserve to live your life enjoying every moment.
