Acupuncture for Stress

Modern life is stressful; whether it’s work, kids, relationships, money worries, or just not having enough time. In fact, stress now seems an inevitable part of life for most of us.

But constant prolonged stress can have significant impacts on your body. It may lead to higher risk of heart problems, weakened immune system, digestive problems, trouble sleeping, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

How can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture can’t take away the causes of stress in your life, but it can help your body respond better, and help you remain calm in the storm.

Evidence shows that Acupuncture can influence the parasympathetic nervous system via the release of neurotransmitters that regulate the body’s stress response. Acupuncture also helps to release endorphins, which can create a sense of well-being and relaxation.

Having acupuncture through stressful periods in your life could help you feel calmer and more resilient. Why not give me a call to find out if acupuncture could help you.
