Abstract

Anxiety disorders in patients with chronic diseases can affect the healing process of the disease. Many cases of anxiety disorders in patients can lead to comorbidity of physical-mental illness. Acupoint stimulation therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a combination of physical and psychological treatment methods to improve the recovery of mental physical comorbidity by improving the value of Interleukin 6 (IL-6). The purpose of the study was to see the effect of stimulation of acupoint ST-36 and CBT in reducing IL-6 levels in anxiety disorders. The research method used was an experiment with a control group and using pre and post test, the number of samples used was 20 people divided into two groups, control and treatment groups. The results showed that the stimulation of ST-36 and CBT points had a significant effect in reducing IL-6 levels in the blood compared to the control group. Based on psychological tests showed that the level of anxiety in the treatment group was better than the control group.
