Acupuncture for Stress & Well-Being
Acupuncture works to alleviate stress by releasing natural pain-killing chemicals in the brain, called endorphins. In addition, acupuncture improves circulation of blood throughout the body, which oxygenates the tissues and cycles out cortisol and other waste chemicals. The calming nature of acupuncture also decreases heart rate, lowers blood pressure and relaxes the muscles.
Common symptoms can be fatigue, chronic pain, irritability, insomnia, and anxiety. These blockages can further develop into more serious health issues if left untreated. Acupuncture calms the nervous system and removes these blockages to bring back well being and balance to the body.
If you are currently participating in therapy or counseling, acupuncture can be a very effective adjunct therapy to help support the work you are already doing.
Acupuncture is also commonly used to treat the following conditions:
- Anxiety & Panic Disorders
