Can acupuncture help anxiety?

Acupuncture is a holistic medical treatment that works to provide relief from anxiety with no bad side effects. Even better, acupuncture has been shown to provide permanent results unlike the harsh medications that are often used.

You see, the problem with regular anxiety treatments is that most doctors just hand you a prescription for xanax. You might find temporary relief from a sedative medication like xanax, but the second you stop taking it, your anxiety is just right back to where you started.

What makes acupuncture so different and effective is that it actually helps to re-wire your brain and stimulate your body to release natural anti-anxiety neuro-transmitters.

Over time, acupuncture can give you LASTING relief from your anxiety.

Our lives are full of stress and pressure. The non-stop emails, the inability to get away from work because we all carry our smart phones with us, the constant bad drivers. There will always be a stressor, something to make sure your anxiety is in full swing.

Acupuncture is great to help control how your body responds to all of these external stressors. It’s a little get away, in an otherwise stressful world.

Anxiety is actually one of the more common problems that I treat here at Hanson Complete Wellness, in Tampa, FL.

If you’re dealing with anxiety, expect to complete a course of treatments (1 course of treatments is 8 acupuncture sessions) to see a significant drop in anxiety. After a course of treatment, most patients move into a maintenance phase that involves a treatment every 1-4 weeks.

If you’re dealing with anxiety, and you’re sick and tired of the it controlling your life, then give my clinic a call 813-534-0311 at so we can see how we can help you.
