Acupuncture for anxiety, stress, and insomnia in San Diego

by Jared Lien RN Licensed Acupuncturist

Acupuncture has been in use for thousands of years. Anxiety is a common emotion that all humans feel at one time in our lives. Some people experience this continuously due to stress or trauma. The good news is there are more options than taking drugs. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help with anxiety, stress and insomnia. My experience as a nurse and acupuncturist has shown me that most drugs for anxiety are only good short term. These drugs can become addictive over time and tend to have a sedative affect. Acupuncture can relieve anxiety without the side effects of addiction or sedation.

Anxiety can lead to insomnia and that can be detrimental to your health. Have you ever experienced days or weeks without getting sleep? Acupuncture has been shown to improve sleep efficiency and sleep disorders compared to those who did not receive acupuncture treatments. Long term improvements in sleep were also seen in this study from Henan University of TCM, Zhengzhou (World Journal of Acupuncture-Moxibustion House, 2014) Don’t let your anxiety affect every area of your life.
