Chinese medicine practitioners some of which are acupuncturists and Chinese herbalists argue that negative extreme emotions such as anxiety, depression and stress are major factors that cause energy imbalances in the body. Traditional Chinese medicine such as acupuncture theorizes that stress, depression or anxiety builds up blockages in the energy vessels called meridians. Meridians convey and distribute vital force or life energy which the Chinese call chi that enables the growth, health and vitality of the body. When chi flow is blocked or stagnates, ailments and disorders arise. One common type of ailment caused by chi blockage is muscle pain in the neck and back in the blockage area. Besides muscle pain, the blockage can also lead to insomnia, high blood pressure or digestive problems. With acupuncture treatment, the needles create stimuli and energy that remove the blockage restoring energy balance to the body once again.
For anxiety and panic attacks, acupuncture treatment is usually done on the ear since the ear has meridians that connect to the organs that are energy deficient.

This positive therapeutic effect can also lower blood pressure and heart rate, ameliorate blood flow throughout the body and help relax stiff tense muscles, which vastly reduces any pain and muscle spasms in the body.
