The anxiety treatment at Raleigh Acupuncture is unique and provides great results for people suffering from stress, fear and panic. Acupuncture eases anxiety, breaking its hold, to help you live a healthier, joyful life.
How Acupuncture Eases Anxiety
Acupuncture for anxiety focuses on healing the heart. In Chinese medicine, anxiety is an imbalance involving the heart. This does NOT mean you have a heart condition from a Western medical perspective. Chinese medicine attributes emotional imbalances to different organs, and anxiety is associated with the heart.
Sometimes anxiety is linked to deficiency in heart qi. Other times it is associated with excess heat in the heart. These are all imbalances classically associated with anxiety. There are other possible triggers for anxiety as well. When you first come for treatment we will conduct a comprehensive intake and exam which allows us to properly identify and diagnose the specific causes of your anxiety.
Once we have a clear understanding of what is causing your anxiety, we create a treatment plan to address your specific imbalances. Over the course of your treatment, these imbalances will be corrected and your body and mind will be able to function normally again. This will reduce your anxiety and possibly resolve it for good.
Anxiety Treatment Benefits
Each time you are treated for anxiety, in addition to correcting imbalances associated with your imbalance, you will also experience a deep state of relaxation. This is an important part of how acupuncture eases anxiety, enabling your body to “learn” how to feel relaxed. The acupuncture sessions are helping to create a new habit of living without anxiety, which you will take with you into the world when you leave.
Reprogramming the body and mind to have less anxiety is an important feature of our treatment, one that is unique and highly effective. It is a central part of our holistic approach to treating anxiety. It’s how acupuncture eases anxiety.
If you suffer from anxiety, make an appointment to see us. Together we can determine the best course of treatment for you. You will start feeling better almost immediately, so don’t wait.

Once you are feeling better you can discuss reducing your medications with your doctor.

What our Clients are Saying
Acupuncture really helped my anxiety. I highly recommend Raleigh Acupuncture. Very professional, reasonably priced and focused on getting me better quickly. Thank you!
I came in for acupuncture highly skeptical that it would be able to help me. I’m an A-type personality and very wired. I feel like I’ve been anxious my entire life. My wife must have been secretly researching treatments for anxiety because last month she announced that I WOULD be trying acupuncture! She did well picking the practice, as the doctors at Acupuncture Associates were top notch. They explained how acupuncture worked to deal with anxiety and then set about doing it. Well, I wouldn’t be writing this letter if it didn’t work. So you know the outcome. Highly satisfactory! I’m still an A-type guy, but with a fraction of the anxiety. The feelings of dread that were constantly lingering around me are gone. In it’s place I feel a sense of peacefulness, albeit a wired peacefulness.
Ever since we moved to Raleigh I was feeling a great deal more anxiety. It was probably a combination of factors including the stress of the move, looking for work and possibly the weather. My chest would get uncomfortably tight and my heart would race throughout the day. I had taken medications in the past but didn’t want that again. Research on the web led me to Raleigh Acupuncture. They treated me for anxiety and after just one treatment I could feel the difference. I got 9 treatments and am completely better. I will continue coming because it makes me feel so good. I highly suggest acupuncture with them for the treatment of anxiety. It’s much more effective than medications.
I was feeling depressed and stressed because I didn’t like my job and didn’t know what to do with my life. I started taking Lexipro but it really affected my libido so I stopped taking it. I tried acupuncture because my husband said it helped him when he was depressed years earlier (before he met me!) I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and started treatments. They were really knowledgeable about Chinese medicine and explained how the body gets stuck in depression, and how the acupuncture gets the body unstuck. They really listened to me and helped me figure stuff out. I started feeling less depressed. Then I actually started getting more clear about what I wanted to do with my life career-wise. I decided to go back to school and now I’m almost done with my degree. I haven’t felt depressed at all since I was treated and I’m really excited about my life. I’m very grateful to them for being such great healers and such a great support to me when I really needed it.
I’ve had generalized anxiety for years and had been managing it fairly well. But then I lost my job and the anxiety really escalated. I started getting panic attacks every day and dreaded even getting in my car to drive. My sister suggested that I try acupuncture, so I did. I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and explained my situation. They said they treated this condition all the time with excellent results. I was stressed about money too, but they had reasonable fees. They treated me with acupuncture and herbs for the next two months. I know it helped, because my unemployment situation didn’t change but I stopped having panic attacks. Even my regular anxiety decreased – significantly. It’s like my whole body relaxed and things didn’t make me anxious as easily.
