From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, COVID-19 poses significant challenges to a human’s xing (形, physical body, internal organs), qi (气, vital energy) and shen (神, mind, spirit). This article explains the close relationship of these three aspects of the human being and how they are affected by COVID-19 to cause neuropsychiatric disorders. The authors explain how acupuncture can be utilised to adjust xing, regulate qi and balance shen in order to effectively treat post-COVID-19 psychological and neuropsychiatric symptoms.
