Emotional stress and tension related muscles, how can acupuncture help

The occipitofrontalis muscle (epicranius muscle) is a muscle which covers most part of the skull on the top of the head. It consists of three parts: The occipitalis, at the back of the head near the occipital bone, which draws the scalp backward; The frontalis, at the forehead near the frontal bone, which raises the eyebrows, draws the scalp forward, and causes wrinkles in the forehead; Epicranial aponeurosis at the top of the head and it is tendon that connects the occipitalis and frontalis muscles.

The tension level of the occipitofrontalis muscle was detected under stress condition. Trigger points can be found in this muscle. One at the forehead just above to the eyebrow and another one at the back of the head above the neck. Muscle tension can also be found under palpation.

Acupuncutre can help release the tension of this muscle to reduce emotional stress and tension.
