Acupuncture Helps

How acupuncture helps stress and anxiety?

In ancient Chinese medicine, energy called Qi regulates the body's overall health, moving through meridians. If Qi's flow is disturbed in any way, usually from an injury, poor eating nutrition, stress, or other discomforts, that is when we begin to feel unbalanced. The practice of acupuncture can help with an imbalance. It involves the insertion of needles in specific areas throughout the body and is an acupuncturist's method of restoring Qi's balance. This insertion promotes better health and relief for the patient.

Needles are inserted around the nerves, where they get to work regulating the joy-making neurotransmitters in your brain. They also help decrease the markers of stress and lower blood pressure, which helps treat anxiety. Acupuncture also helps with:

  • Alleviating migraines or other headaches
  • Reducing the severity of hot flashes in women during menopause
  • Alleviating seasonal allergy symptoms
  • Treating acid reflux disease
  • Soothing heartburn through acid regulation and aiding digestion
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Relieving lower back pain
  • Helping with weight loss and maintenance
  • Overall, acupuncture has been helping people find peace and balance for thousands of years. Today, acupuncture has been growing in popularity because of the research that supports its efficacy and success rate, especially for anxiety and other mental health problems.
