Are you interested in a holistic approach to managing stress and anxiety? Acupuncture works!
Anxiety is a completely normal human emotion. Many people feel nervous or anxious when faced with work problems, before taking an exam, or making a challenging life decision. It’s a perfectly normal reaction to stress.
So what exactly is stressing us out? Whenever we experience a thought or event that we perceive as stressful, our bodies produce hormones and neurotransmitters that help us respond to the stressful situation by engaging in a conflict or fleeing.
This “fight or flight” response is important for motivating us to take action and avoid danger when necessary. It is meant to be a short-term reaction to a situation that may be life-threatening. With continued or repeated stress without adequate time and resources for our bodies to recover, the “fight or flight” response can become chronic, and can interfere with someone’s ability to lead a normal life.
Distress can disturb the body’s internal balance or equilibrium, leading to physical symptoms. Emotional problems can also result from distress. In the United States, anxiety disorders affect about 40 million adults — women twice more than men.
Acupuncture is a powerful treatment for relieving anxiety.
Acupuncture treats your mental, emotional and physical symptoms. It helps relieve the headaches, upset stomach, chest pain, sexual dysfunction, muscle aches, insomnia, and irritability that anxiety and stress can cause, as well as reducing blood pressure.
The resulting effect from acupuncture is a feeling of relaxation, calm and an overall sense of well-being. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
