Anxiety is said to be linked to the Spleen, Lung and the Heart in relation to the Kidney.
The Spleen is related to obsessing and overthinking – and is seen as the underlying cause of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
The Lung is related to symptoms of grief, self-esteem issues and the inability to let go.
The Liver is related to anger, resentment, and frustration that leaves us feeling stuck.
All of these imbalances can contribute to how the energy flows to the organ systems – depending on how the anxiety manifests in the body.
By looking at the emotions we feel, a direct connection to the functioning of our organs can be revealed. Acupuncturists can determine which areas in the body are deficient, stagnant and need restoration. This will help you recognize how your emotional tendencies have manifested into your body so you can cultivate that sense of control over your life again.
