How Acupuncture Works to Restore Your Health? Emmmm, let’s show you how does acupuncture work.

Few people know how effective acupuncture can be for anxiety. Anxiety is caused by a heart energy deficiency in Chinese medicine. When the heart energy is out of balance, it is impossible to not be anxious. There is no separation of the emotions from the internal organs in Chinese Medicine.

Many acupuncture points treat anxiety. In fact, most acupuncture points will calm you down. They increase the energy balance in your body and “pull down energy” from your head, so they can be very calming.

Below are Some popular points for anxiety:


Heart 7– functional acupressure point. The great calming that is an effective solution to the problem of how to overcome anxiety, nervousness and palpitations naturally. This point is on the wrist, just at the wrist crease. This point can be activated by pressing the point on both hands using the middle finger for 1 minute while breathing deeply. It aids to treat emotional imbalances, nervousness, anxiety, palpitations, fear, and forgetfulness. In addition, it also helps to treat insomnia, cardiac pain, irritability, chest pain, epilepsy, and stupor. You can also use magnetic pellets for this point. Please see your acupuncturist for this.

Pericardium 6– One of the most popular points in acupuncture. P6 is another powerful acupressure point for palpitations treatment and helps in prompt recovery. This point is positioned in the middle of the inner side of the forearm, two and one-half finger widths from the wrist crease. Point P6 can be stimulated on both hands by applying firm pressure to the point using the index finger for 1 minute while breathing deeply through the nose.The point is also popular for morning sickness and sea sickness. It calms the heart, opens up circulation in the chest and also regulates the stomach and digestion. 

The point is on the inside of the arm, or the side of the palm.


In addition to the points on the heart and pericardium meridians, which directly affect the heart energy, I always add points that treat overall health.

Liver 3 – for stress

Spleen 6 – for liver, spleen and kidney energy

Stomach 36 – for digestion, immunity and energy levels

It is important to treat the underlying imbalances and deficiencies that can cause emotional issues. If you cannot get acupuncture right now, you might try gotu kola. It is an herb from India that is sold over the counter. It improves memory and calms you down, without being a sedative. I also recommend acupressure pellets.
