MENTAL HEALTH

Your resource in Clear Creek County for Mental Health.

In Chinese medicine, there is no separation between the physical and emotional body.  This means there is an explanation for how emotions can affect your body physically.  Each organ in the system is affected by emotion in a different way, and if the emotion is strong enough, it can even pull other organs out of harmony.  This explains why some people may experience digestive issues in times of high stress or mental fog during times of exhaustion.  Chinese medicine even has an explanation for the lump you get in your throat right before you cry. 


This deep and inherent knowledge makes Acupuncture and herbal medicine excellent therapies for treating mental illnesses like anxiety, depression, PTSD, Bi-Polar disorder, eating disorders, OCD, and trauma.  In fact, Chinese medicine is so adept at balancing emotions, that it seems to be one of the first things patients notice when they are on a course of treatment.
