Managing and Moderating Emotions
In the long history of Asian healing, environment and emotion are considered the most significant factors in the cause of disease
Whenever an individual is confronted with a situation, they experience one of the five main emotions -- fear, anger, excitement, worry, and grief -- the mental emotion is translated to the body as a chemical messenger, which is neutralized by the protectorate meridians of the body.
These protectorate meridians are the body's first line of defense against damaging emotions as well as environmental factors."

How Acupuncture Works for Emotions
Acupuncture, among the oldest healing practices in the world, is part of traditional Chinese medicine.
Acupuncture practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin.
In traditional Chinese medicine theory, this regulates the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians.
