overlooking nature from relaxed spot on balcony

Many people suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, and feelings of fear. This is nothing new as far as the human condition goes. Whether the issue stems from an imbalance in the endocrine system, the nervous system, the organs, or life history, there are many benefits of acupuncture.  By removing blockages to the flow of qi and putting the internal systems into balance and order, a person is put in touch with their natural ability to heal. This is how it has worked for thousands of years, without modern drugs or side effects. 

In life, there are many possibilities for change. Change can be very stressful, whether it’s good or bad. Many people fear change because of the unknowing it brings. When we are in the unknowing, we can feel out of control and unsafe, a major cause of fear and dread. However, what appears to be external circumstances is actually not the issue. Rather, it is our internal response to the world which causes our distress. 

When our qi (energy) is flowing smoothly, we feel more capable of handling whatever comes our way. Acupuncture helps put everything back in place so we feel more calm, peaceful, and present. In this way, many people are able to lessen or even stop their medications, with their doctor’s cooperation. 

Summertime is a great time to step into a feeling of expansiveness. It is warm outside, the sun is up more than it is down, and many people feel more alive now than any other time of the year. It is the perfect time to move forward and step into a clearer, brighter reality for ourselves and the ones we love. The best way to reward our loved ones is to take care of ourselves and radiate joy. Nothing could please them more.
