Acupuncture Effective for Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns. Clinical research studies render acupuncture as a safe and beneficial treatment therapy for anxiety. Mechanisms of action include regulation of neurotransmitters, modulation of autonomic nervous system and changes to immune function. A 2018 systematic review of clinical research summarized that there is good scientific evidence encouraging the use of acupuncture therapy to treat anxiety as it yields significantly effective outcomes with fewer side effects than conventional pharmacology treatments. If you suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, or post-traumatic stress disorder, please call us to see how acupuncture may help you. References Amorim, D., Amado, J., Brito, I., Fiuza, S.
