Acupuncture for Stress/Irritability and Moodiness
Every now and then we can suffer from irritability and moodiness but, if you find that a short temper and frustration are becoming a constant issue for you, then acupuncture may be what your looking for.
Often irritability and moodiness can be the consequence of chronic stress in your life. Over time these emotions can progress into more serious emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression as well as other health concerns such as digestive problems, trouble sleeping and the tendency for a weakened immune system.
Liver Qi Stagnation and Emotions
Emotional disorders can be associated with a number of different patterns of disharmony within Oriental medicine however, anger, irritability, and frustration are all signs that our qi (energy) is not moving smoothly. The liver is responsible for the smooth flowing of qi (energy) throughout the body and for calming our emotions. When the liver’s function of moving qi is disrupted, qi can become stuck or stagnant. This is referred to as liver qi stagnation.
Liver qi stagnation is one of the most common patterns of disharmony seen in today’s patients. In addition to irritability and moodiness, signs and symptoms may include: distending pain in the area below the ribs, stuffiness of the chest, sighing, abdominal distention, nausea, sour regurgitation, belching, diarrhea or constipation, feeling of a lump in the throat, irregular periods, painful periods and distention of the breasts prior to periods. Liver qi stagnation is commonly associated with PMS.
Acupuncture and Oriental medicine is so effective at relieving liver qi stagnation. Treatment for irritability and moodiness associated with liver qi stagnation focuses on moving qi and getting rid of the stagnation, supporting the liver and spleen meridians with acupuncture, lifestyle and dietary recommendations.
