In today’s society, many people suffer from stress and emotional issues. Often, emotional blockages are at the root of physical disease and dysfunction, toxicity, and infections. Many conditions including chronic infections are often related to a concurrent emotional trauma. Emotional blockages, resulting from trauma or significant stressors, can cause physical symptoms through brain signaling and electrical pathways as well as cause congestion of Qi in the acupuncture meridians. When the electrical impulse and the meridian is corrected and unblocked, the emotional block resolves leading to balanced functioning of the immune system, the nervous system, and organ functions. The chronic conditions often resolve, on their own as a result.
Psycho-emotional acupuncture is individually tailored to address each one of our unique constellations of signs and symptoms. Chinese Medicine does not recognize any mental disorder as one particular syndrome. Instead, it aims to treat the specific symptoms that are unique to each individual using a variety of techniques including acupuncture, lifestyle/dietary recommendations, and exercises to restore imbalances found in the body.
