Anxiety, Panic Attack
An anxiety disorder is a serious mental illness. For people with anxiety disorders, worry and fear are constant and
overwhelming, and can be crippling.
There are many types of anxiety disorders that include panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-
traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder.
While some medications have been known to ease anxiety, they may also suffer from undesirable side effects,
suppressing the symptoms while making individuals chemically toxic.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to anxiety problems is to treat the root cause. In TCM theories
each organ is responsible for one’s different emotions like: the Heart stores the spirit, the Liver is tied to anger,
the Spleen to excessive worry, the Kidney to fear, and the Lung with grief and anxiety. A disturbance in one or
more of these organs can cause an imbalanced emotional state.
The power of Chinese medicine is in a personalized treatment. Therefore a comprehensive consultation and
assessment is a needed on your first visit in order to classifies the cause of a specific mental disorder according
to how much each organ has been disturbed and how its Qi is affected. The flow of Qi or energy can be
interrupted by several factors, including anxiety, stress, anger, fear or grief. TCM classifies the cause of a specific

TCM treatment of anxiety disorder involves acupuncture and herbal medicine. Acupuncture seeks to restore any
imbalance between the organs, promotes the organ's Qi flow to unblock the emotional stagnation, and restore the
smoothen emotion. Acupuncture therapy uses fine needles stimulating the body's own healing power to restore its
natural balance. The individually prepared herbal medicines works with acupuncture together to correct the
imbalance and restore the natural mental health. Changes in lifestyle and the adoption of self-help
recommendations are also part of the healing process
