More than 40 million American adults suffer from GAD - Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety can be experienced in many ways but can often be characterized by excessive worry of life events and circumstances with no obvious reasons. Individuals suffering from GAD feel like they can't stop ruminating, fearing and worrying about things like family, health, death, work, school and the future. Daily functioning is difficulty and life quality is significantly impacted. Of course that's not to say that the myriad mental and emotional issues suffered by millions of Americans do not have similar impacts on people's lives. Acupuncture can address many of these issues.
With acupuncture treatment, you can expect to see an improvement in:
Preoccupation, obsessive worry and rumination
Palpitations, shortness of breath

Acupuncture can help restore balance, focus, clarity, peace of mind and appropriate response to life circumstances and events by restoring natural balance and harmony to the individual's system and begin the emotional healing process.
