Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are treatments that can be used to treat anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD and more. This is done by helping to reduce cortisol levels and help regulate energy in the body. Dr. Mason Martinez earned her Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and is performing these treatments to her patients at Eleven Wellness + IV in Preston Center in Dallas.
According to Dr. Martinez, in Western medicine, there is not a great definition for what anxiety really is and what that means for people. But in Chinese medicine, we look at the body as energy flow and these emotions effect the flow of the energy. Because we have a mechanism, we also have a tool to treat it.
Regular acupuncture treatments have been shown to significantly decrease the symptoms of anxiety and depression in many patients.
So, we are able to use acupuncture at our Dallas Med Spa to smooth the flow of energy in the body and to settle the emotions; things that will lead to symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Your first appointment with Dr. Martinez will be 90 minutes long. The first 30 minutes is a sit down where you can discuss your medical history and your goals for treatment followed by your first customized treatment. Book online at our medspa today! We can’t wait to see you!
