Acupuncture: The Ultimate Stress-Buster!

For many, summer is a time of rest, relaxation, and fun. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. Now that kids have returned to school and busy schedules resume, we can expect our stress levels to increase. Being in survival mode can cause us to normalize feelings of anxiety, stress, lack of proper sleep, and body pain. After all, we’re just trying to power through life the best we can, right? Here’s the good news: You don’t have to live that way.

 

Acupuncture can treat excessive stress, anxiety, and depression.

 

By sending a signal to the brain through the central nervous system, acupuncture stimulates the body’s release of endorphins, which are natural “feel-good” hormones that make us happy and relieve pain. Acupuncture has been clinically proven to lower stress-related cortisol levels in the body. Serotonin, a chemical that manages mood regulation and sexual desire, is also released, which can reduce symptoms associated with depression.

 

Acupuncture has a positive effect on sleep and can help with insomnia.

 

If you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night, acupuncture can help regulate your body’s natural sleep cycle. One session can stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to initiate a relaxation response which stops the sympathetic nervous system from triggering physiological and emotional changes. Emotional dysregulation can lead to a weakened immune system and increase inflammation in the body. Acupuncture has shown to restore immune function when anxiety is present. Stress and anxiety not only impact your emotional health, but also manifest in the body as physiological ailments. After all, the body keeps the score!

 

If you are experiencing chronic pain, digestive discomfort, or women’s issues, you don’t need to suffer any longer.
