As anxiety and depression are the mostcommon mental disorders worldwide, there are more than 10 million British are affected by anxiety or depression (that is approximately one in five people will experience clinical depression at least once in their lifetime).In the UK, One of the main cause for people to commit suicide is depression which claims more than 20,000 lives each year. The western conventional drugs for depression, such as Prozac, Elavil, Paxil, Effexor and Trazodone, normally work on keeping a good level of serotonin in the brain. However, these medications carry with them some severe side effects which cancel out the benefits. While the Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is proved to be a legitimate treatment andcan be the best alternative treatment compared to that in western management. At one time or another, all of us experience stress. These feelings are a healthy response to events in our lives that may feel beyond our control. When we are healthy and the stress is short-lived, we are usually able to recover without too much wear and tear to our overall health. However, when the stress is severe, or lasts for a long period of time, the emotional and physical healthbegins to suffer.The human bodies are equipped to help and react to such stressful events. The main part of our nervous system to react is the sympathetic nervous system which will try to kick in and facilitatesthe so called the “fight or flight” response.
According to Chinese medical theory, anxiety and depression can disturb the body energy flows which might lead to upper back, shoulder and neck pain. This is because stress is causing tension in those areas, blocking the free flow of energy, causing pain, tightness, and often leading to headaches. Stress may affectother systems of the human body such as digestive system, sleeping control system and blood circulatory system.
It is well documented that acupuncture works to alleviate stress by releasing endorphin in the brain, which is thegood feeling hormone (natural pain-killingchemicals). Furthermore, acupuncture improves circulation of blood throughout the body, which oxygenates the tissues and cycles out cortisol and other waste chemicals. The tranquilizing effect of acupuncture decreases the heart rate, lowers blood pressure and relaxes the muscles.
