Can acupuncture help with anxiety?

I absolutely believe that acupuncture can help with anxiety. Conquering anxiety is about being able to control your though patterns and quiet your mind. An anxious mind is like a television that incessantly flips through the channels. The practice of acupuncture revolves around the inseparable connection between the mind and body. It is an ancient form of medicine that has been used to treat a broad range of issues. Acupuncture specifically focuses on freeing up the energy channels of the body. When these channels become 'blocked', energy (known as Qi) does not flow properly. There is no disputing the fact that every single thing within the universe is some form of energy. Given this, I believe that an interrupted flow of body energy could be one cause of anxiety. I believe that acupuncture, used in conjunction with lifestyle changes that decrease stress, could be a great way to help rid yourself of excessive anxiety.
