We also understand that when one experiences emotional upset, ones internal environment also becomes isrupted, leading to physical symptoms of psychiatric disorders., and when ones internal environment has changed, ones emotions can be greatly affected.
According to acupuncture theories, these disorders can be the result of an imbalance or blockage in one or more of the body’s organ systems and meridian pathways.
