Get relief from stress and pain with acupuncture!

Don’t suffer from anxiety — bring your body and emotions back into balance with acupuncture!

Tension and stress affect different people in different ways. For some, it manifests as emotional tension. Energy can stagnate in the chest area, and heart palpitations and nervousness can occur, as well as feelings of anxiety or feeling distant emotionally.

Stress is a normal human reaction that happens to everyone, in fact, the human body is designed to experience stress and react to it. When you experience changes or challenges, your body produces physical and mental responses.

Stress responses help your body adjust to new situations. Stress can be positive, keeping us alert, motivated and ready to avoid danger. For example, if you have an important exam coming up, a stress response might help your body work harder and stay awake longer. But stress becomes a problem when stressors continue without relief or periods of relaxation.

In other people, the build up and stagnation of energy can cause muscle tension, pain, spasm and headaches. If the tension isn’t relieved, and is allowed to become chronic, it can lead to habitual anger, migraines and high blood pressure, among other symptoms.

Stress, anxiety and depression can cause a disruption in the flow of vital energy, or Qi, through the body. These energetic imbalances can throw off the immune system or cause symptoms of pain, sleep disturbances, abnormal digestion, headaches, and menstrual irregularities, and, over time, more serious illnesses can develop.

Give yourself the gift of health — with acupuncture!

Acupuncture treatments can directly affect the way your body manages stress and your mental and physical health. Acupuncture can be very helpful for those who suffer from depression as treatments can bring the body to a more balanced state.

Acupuncture is used to unblock energy, and move it through channels in the body and either balance it or repel it from the body via the meridian system. This causes energy to flow freer in the channels of the body, allowing the person to feel more relaxed, balanced, and able to focus.

Acupuncture treatments often have the quality of sleep and deep relaxation.

In fact, many patients report falling asleep during the session, and enjoy a good night’s sleep following treatment.

Acupuncture is a fantastic way to release built up stress, and head off tension before it starts to cause trouble.

With acupuncture, we look at your whole health history and tailor a treatment specifically to your needs. Many patients feel immediate improvements.

The best part? The treatment is safe, natural, effective and drug-free.

Acupuncture Eases Seasonal Depression, Naturally

Happy Autumn Couple 1
If you are suffering from depression this season, acupuncture can offer effective, holistic care.

Feelings of depression during the changes of season happen to many of us. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects over ten million people in the United States each year. While the true cause of SAD is not known, it is commonly thought that decreased melatonin levels caused from limited exposure to sunlight in the winter are involved, as well as decreased serotonin levels — both may trigger depression.

In addition, our biological clock (circadian rhythm) which lets our body know when to sleep and when to be awake is also disrupted with seasonal changes. Varying sleep patterns often leads to feelings of depression, too.

Acupuncture gets you back into balance!

How do you know if you are depressed? Symptoms of depression include loss of interest or focus, fatigue, changes in eating habits and excessive sleeping, among many others.

Depression can cause people to lose pleasure from daily life, complicate other medical conditions, and if serious enough lead to suicide. As with many illnesses, early treatment is more effective and helps prevent the likelihood of serious recurrences.

One of the best ways to treat depression is through regular acupuncture treatments. It can bring the body to a more balanced state, help the body release “feel-good” endorphins and even prevent other medical complications.

Acupuncture is a wonderful addition to Western medical treatments. And for those who wish to bypass prescription drugs, treating depression with acupuncture not only has a positive and holistic effect, it avoids the potential side effects of traditional medication.
