Acupuncture Stress Anxiety Melbourne

Acupuncture for Anxiety and Stress

Stress and anxiety affects everyone to varying degrees and in various ways. For some people, exercising or listening to music can help them to overcome negative feelings, while others may require medication.

At Melbourne Acupuncture Wellness, we offer acupuncture that may help to alleviate stress, anxiety and low moods. Acupuncture may be used in conjunction with medication and therapy if required, as one should not be a substitute for the other.

One of the biggest benefits of acupuncture for alleviating stress and anxiety is that it’s a drug-free treatment, meaning it shouldn’t cause side effects such as nausea, fatigue and loss of sexual desire.

How It Works

According to practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine, everyone has an energy force within them called Qi. A person’s Qi monitors their overall body health, moving through the entire body. When unexpected incidents like illness or injury interrupt the natural Qi flow, further health issues may arise. By placing acupuncture needles at specific points in the body, the body’s Qi balance is reinstated. The insertion of the needles, often just half a millimetre away from a nerve, may inhibit the production of hormones that can lead to stress and anxiety.

Acupuncture points our Melbourne acupuncture clinic uses to address anxiety may include:

  • Nei Guan/PC6
  • Union Valley/LI4
  • Shoulder Well/GB21
  • Central Treasury/LU1
  • Heavenly Pillar/BL10
