Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

Characterized by exaggerated, persistent and excessive worry about everyday things.

People with this disorder often expect the worst and experience exaggerated worry and tension, even when there may be no apparent reason for concern.

The role of an acupuncturist is to investigate the underlying causes of the anxiety, this is done by carrying out a thorough diagnostic evaluation in order to determine which organ systems are out of balance.

The acupuncturist will seek to restore the imbalance by carefully inserting fine, sterile needles into the acupuncture meridian points correlating to those organs.

Additionally, acupuncture helps to reduce stress, encourages and supports a greater sense of well-being and balance.
