Acupuncture for stress works amazingly well! It resets the body’s autonomic nervous system, gets us out of ‘fight or flight’ mode, and back into ‘rest, digest, and heal’ mode.
Acupuncture for stress is great for relaxing, reducing tension that causes pain and discomfort, and helps with insomnia, anxiety & nervousness, and mild to moderate depression.
This makes an acupuncture treatment a highly pleasurable experience, as internally produced endorphins which are natural pain killers, circulate through the body and you feel better as stress, tension, and pain melt away.
As high levels of stress are one of the main causes of disease, it is important to develop a toolset of activities and behaviors (exercise, meditation, music, play, etc.) that help to reduce excess stress in our lives. Acupuncture can definitely be one of these tools.
