Most people experience anxiety at some point in their life. You might experience mild symptoms when facing a challenging or stressful situation. You might also have more severe, long-lasting symptoms that impact your daily life, including:
- feelings of panic, fear, or worry
- difficulty concentrating
- difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
- nausea, headaches, or digestive concerns
- feeling a lack of control
- muscle tension
Anxiety is typically treated with therapy, medication, or a combination of both. There are also several alternative treatments, including acupressure, that can help.
Acupressure is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that may provide temporary relief from anxiety symptoms. It involves stimulating pressure points in your body, either on your own or with the help of a professional.
