Anxiety management by Acpuncture・不安障害への鍼介入


Anxiety disorder managed by Acupuncture

Hello, I hope you are finally getting used to the pandemic, or at least feeling more settled. However, have you been feeling more anxious, restless, irritable, unable to concentrate, or nervous and unable to sleep well since the Corona? The symptoms of anxiety vary from person to person. The main symptoms are

A sense of impending danger, irritable, panic, or a feeling of hopelessness, increased heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating, tremors, fatigue or weakness, lack of concentration, trouble sleeping, gastrointestinal problems, and excessive worry. If you have any of the above symptoms, acupuncture is recommended.

Have you ever heard of the “fight or flight response?” It is an animal’s response to fear, and while it allows the animal to exert monstrous strength that it normally would not be able to exert in order to survive in an imminent crisis situation, it also causes constriction of blood flow to internal organs that are not used in an emergency and impairs judgment, which can negatively affect the body and mind when stressed over a long period of time. It is one of the autonomic nervous system disorders.

Acupuncture stimulates the vagus nerve, one of the important autonomic nervous systems, and brings the body closer to a state of parasympathetic dominance, making it effective in treating anxiety and the symptoms described above. We also prescribe Chinese herbal medicine according to each patient’s individual constitution. Compared to Western medicine, there is no need to worry about harsh side effects or dependence on medications. Of course, we recommend that you receive therapy, but we also encourage you to try acupuncture before taking medications or increasing the dosage and taking stronger medications.

こんにちは。パンデミックもやっと慣れて来たと言うか落ち着いて来た感じですが、コロナ以来不安感がましたり、落ち着かなくてイライラしてしまったり、集中出来なかったり、神経質で良く眠れなかったりされていませんか? アングザイエティーと言いますが、症状は人によって異なります。主な症状は以下の通りです。


「戦うか逃げるか反応」と言うのを聞いたことがありますか? 動物の恐怖への反応で、差し迫った危機的状況において、生き延びるために、通常は発揮できない怪力を発揮できる反面、緊急時に使用しない内臓への血流が絞られたり判断力が低下するため、長期的にストレスを受けると体や精神に悪影響が出ます。自律神経系失調症のひとつです。
