Emotional Health

Emotional Health with Akari

How we see ourselves and the world is based on many layers of experiences, perceptions, feelings, emotions, beliefs, and how we respond. These could be the underlying causes of many kinds of unwellness.

We all have emotions, and it is normal and healthy to feel them, but if it feels your emotions are owning you, it might be a sign that you would want to seek support so that you can shine physically, emotionally, and socially.

Listed conditions can be supported with Chinese Medicine  (which includes Acupuncture) to restore balance.


Massage Therapy can be used as a physical symptom relief.

Ask Akari

I am seeing a Psychotherapist. Can I receive your treatment?


Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture are great complementary tools to your psychotherapy treatments.

Why do you focus on Emotional Health?

It is because I have gone through some ups and downs, just like others.

They were good and bad, bright and dark, sweet, bitter, sour, all sorts.

But I have been fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful people, I was able to get up after each fall.

So I know the importance and impact of emotional health on physical health and overall well-being from my own experience.

I am continuing to work on my emotional health and to learn how to support my patients better. I make sure to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for my patients to be their true-selves and to be heard, so that they can shine again.

How often and how many treatments do I need before starting to feel better?

Frequency and number of treatments needed depends on the individual condition(s).

The goals of the treatment for emotional health are not to supress emotions, but to help you feel comfortable with them and for you to be able to find meanings in day to day emotions, beliefs, and experiences.

With Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture treatment, I normally suggest 2 weekly treatments, and then re-evaluate the treatment frequency depending on how you respond.

Treatment is often accompanied with herbal medicine and other modalities such as lifestyle modification, breathing, meditation, food therapy, and exercises etc.
