How Can We Solve Stress-Related Pain?
Dr. Luo: Some of the acupuncture and herbal treatment methods are very helpful in the secretion of serotonin substance called happiness hormone. In addition, these methods have significant benefits in relieving stress-related head, neck, back, waist-leg pain and psychological problems. It is known that traditional Chinese medicine methods are also effective in anxiety problems.
Dr. Yuan: The ultimate aim of the acupuncture method in stress problems, as in other diseases, is to restore the body's Yin and Yang balance. The mechanism by which the disease occurs is mixed. Acupuncture reconciles the imbalance between Yin and Yang so that the body can regain the balance that has been disturbed during the disease process. The role of acupuncture and moxibustion technique in reconciling yin and yang is related to the meridians in our body. The harmony of the meridian points in our body is ensured by acupuncture and moxibustion techniques, ensuring that the patient is relieved of stress and related pain.
