Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs-Balancing Emotions



Ideally, all the organs & meridians of the body operate in balance and emotions are calm and appropriate to life’s situations.  However, when the Qi/energy in our meridians gets out of balance, it can be difficult for us to maintain our normal emotional balance.  Some people may experience anxiety,worry and other difficult emotional states.

In Chinese Medicine, these imbalances may manifest as follows:  

 Liver meridian/qi flow imbalance: can cause us to experience excessive or inappropriate anger, irritability, frustration, impatience and/or depression.  Balanced liver qi/energy will help us to be generally relaxed, patient, and emotionally even, feeling a smooth flow of plans going forward.

Heart meridian imbalance may cause us to experience excessive anxiety, panic attacks, palpitations and insomnia.  Balanced- creates calm and relaxed emotions.

 Spleen meridian imbalance- excessive worry, tendency to overthink. Balanced-we have clear crisp thinking at a normal pace.

Lung meridian imbalance-can cause us to experience prolonged grief, sadness or melancholy. Balanced- general feeling of flow, able to move through our feelings and feel contentment.

Kidney Meridian– can manifest with excess worry and fear, loss of will and determination. When balanced-we are calm and able to proceed forward with ease and confidence.

The combination of Specific Chinese Herbal Remedies along with  Acupuncture assist the balancing of emotions during times of stress and throughout the year.
