Anxiety and stress

‘Anxiety’ can range from stress caused by struggling with daily life to anxiety disorder, a mental illness causing severe symptoms including excessive worrying, shortness of breath, panic attacks, palpitations, sleep problems and more.

How can Acupuncture help?

A growing body of research shows that acupuncture, including electro-acupuncture, is effective in regulating our nervous and circulatory systems. It acts on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress. It regulates our brain’s mood chemistry and promotes relaxation, calms the stress hormones and our “analytical” brain where anxiety and worry are centred.

We love working alongside other members of your healthcare team such as your counsellor, psychologist/psychiatrist and GP to ensure you get the best care suited to your needs.

Acupuncture works well alongside other forms of support and medications which may be offered by these healthcare professionals.

There are very few side effects from acupuncture, especially when compared to many medications used to treat anxiety and depression.

Goals of Acupuncture Treatment

To reduce the intensity, frequency and/or duration of your symptoms so that you feel able to fully function physically and emotionally at home, at work and in social situations.

How many treatments?

Everyone is different, so a treatment course will be determined and discussed with you as part of your initial consultation.

Following the first visit, we provide our clients with a clear Treatment Plan which sets out our agreed treatment aims and how we plan to get you there.

We will also provide you with a cost outline and available options.
