Case Studies

chief complaint: anxiety

A 36 year old nurse manager complained of very severe stress and anxiety of 6 months duration. As a hospital nurse, her job stress was enormous. She was by nature a worrier and was greatly troubled by work issues even at night when she tried to sleep. She was greatly relieved after each of her acupuncture sessions and also took herbs that helped restore her energy and sleep. Soon she was able to make constructive job changes. She received 7 acupuncture sessions in all and was delighted with her results. Acupuncture also reduced chronic post nasal drip by about 50% for this patient.
