At QARE Wellness Acupuncture, we are aware of the powerful interplay between our body & emotions-the two are inseparable. When we experience emotional upset, our internal environment becomes disrupted. Likewise, when we experience physical problems, our emotions can become greatly affected.

Over time, this disruption leads to what we calls “stagnant or depressed Qi” This diagnosis is unique to Chinese medicine. Eventually, it can cause a disharmony with our body, affecting our physical and emotional well-being. If not properly treated, this imbalance my lead to depression & anxiety.
