A CDC survey in June 2020 has found that 41% of US adults are struggling with mental or behavioral health conditions, and increased substance abuse.
Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic, we have been seeing a significant increase in the number of patients seeking acupuncture for anxiety, depression and PTSD.
If you are familiar with using acupuncture to treat musculoskeletal pain, it is time to consider acupuncture for stress and anxiety. Combined with lifestyle coping strategies and/ or psychotherapy, this could be a great modality to cultivate mental resilience and lift your spirits.
In 2020, the Acupuncture for NHS (National Health Services) Project provided treatments to the overwhelmed NHS healthcare workers, to help manage their physical pain and emotional stress. Results have been astounding so far. After only three sessions, 80% of the treated healthcare workers have reported improvements in their symptoms. Acupuncture has successfully helped them to manage exhaustion, anxiety, PTSD, sleep issues and neck/ lower back pain amongst many other complaints.
As one of the best acupuncture in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, one of Hima Acupuncture’s specialties is anxiety and stress management. Hima owner, Snow Xia, L.Ac says, “I see many clients with mental distress manifest multiple physical symptoms simultaneously. For example, someone experiencing PTSD also likely experiences chronic pain, substance abuse and sleep disorder simultaneously. So a top-level down approach like acupuncture has the ability to tackle multi-symptom conditions simultaneously.”
So how exactly can acupuncture help build our mental resilience? Snow Xia, L.Ac, says, “Acupuncture calms the nervous system and regulates hormones to assist our body back to a state of ‘rest and digest’. From a calm and centered place, we can then take back control, and better tackle daily stress factors. Almost like taking a chill pill to boost our mental resistance, without the risky side effects of pharmaceutical intervention.”
Hima Acupuncture Williamsburg is committed to the highest quality of patient care and minimal wait time. Snow Xia, L.Ac works with her clients one at a time. Compared to big clinics where a provider’s attention can be divided or limited; there are many advantages to seeking care at a boutique acupuncture office like Hima. This ensures full attention is devoted to your healing, and the treatment plan is personalized.
