Emotions play such a huge role in our overall health, and with our busy lifestyles stress related issues such as anxiety are on the increase.
Acupuncture is a wonderful tool that allows you to take time out from life to rest and unwind, dropping built up tension from the nervous system. Some people enjoy receiving acupuncture regularly especially for this purpose.
It is also possible to receive treatment with the intention of exploring your inner world more deeply. A combination of talking/listening combined with acupuncture can help refine your relationship with yourself and the world.
I find Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture (5element.com.au) remarkably helpful for working with the emotions and lending insight and clarity to the thoughts that create patterns of imbalance in our lives manifesting in the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. I have focused further studies in this area.
