Chinese medicine considers there to be an indissoluble link between the body and the mind.
If there is an issue with the physical body it is experienced both mentally/emotionally and spiritually as well. This in turn is true for the reverse; if our minds or spirits are disturbed it will have physical repercussions.
Each emotion in chinese medicine has is associated with an organ system. By helping to balance the energy of the individual organs and their relationship with each other, Acupuncture has an incredible ability to heal both body and mind simultaneously. Acupuncture can be used on it's own or in conjunction with use of pharmaceuticals.
Acupuncture can help you balance your mind body connection. Not only easing mental distress but helping to ease any physical symptoms that may occur due to that distress. Acupuncture corrects the negative effects that Emotional unrest has on our Qi, Blood, or Yin. By balancing the disharmony of Qi, Blood, or yin we give the mind a calmer more anchored place to live within our bodies.
Along with Acupuncture, herbal formulas can also play a role in the balancing of mind and body. When recommended by a trained professional, Chinese herbal remedies are a safe, natural, and side effect free way of easing mental and emotional suffering.
Herbal formulas can also be used alone or in conjunction with most pharmaceuticals. Chinese medical practitioners are trained to notice and compensate for any drug/herbal interactions in order to assure safety.
Adding breathing techniques such as heart focused breathing and incorporating Qi Gong (movement combined with breath), as well as instituting a daily meditation routine are all additional ways to help keep our spirits clean of disease and our minds feeling clear
