Acupuncture Therapy- Stress and Anxiety


Acupuncture Stimulates The Body's Natural Feel-Good Hormones and Reduces The Level of Stress Hormones Like Cortisol Naturally!

Stress, by design, is the body’s way of signaling for help or a break in the routine. If we don’t listen to these signals, we can develop imbalances in our bodies, which can then lead to illnesses.

Acupuncture Acts Like Physical Therapy For The Nervous System.

Tiny needles retrain the nervous system and brain to behave as it should normally. For the nervous system to act and respond accordingly, cortisol has to be at normal levels and only used when a true “fight or flight” situation occurs. Studies show acupuncture does this. 

Acupuncture reduces stress by keeping the heart rate normal. When the body is stressed, the heart tends to pump faster, and in some cases, a person may even develop heart palpitations. Our heart rate is closely connected to our vagus nerve. If the vagus nerve is stimulated, so too will the heart rate. There are specific acupressure points on the arms and hands that calm the vagus nerve and the heart.

Each Acupuncture Treatment Is a Stress-Free, Drug-Free, Safe and Effective Option For Decreasing Stress and Anxiety

According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorder in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults and costing more than $42 billion a year. 

Feelings of anxiety, worry and fear related to significant and challenging events are justified and very common.

Anxiety becomes a problem when emotional reactions are out of proportion with what might be “normally”  expected in a situation, and when symptoms interfere with a person’s daily functioning. 

Mild anxiety leaves a person feeling a bit unsettled, while severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating.
