Acupuncture for Stress Relief

How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture gets you back into the flow of life, assisting your body to regain its own natural rhythm. It balances your Qi; the vital life-force or energy of life.   Qi is received from the food we eat and the air that we breathe. Sometimes our Qi can get stuck due to our busy and stressful lifestyle. Acupuncture stimulates your body’s natural healing responses and restores you back to balance and good health.

What is stress?

We all know what it feels like to be stressed. That feeling of being overwhelmed and not achieving what we would like to, is not uncommon. But what is really happening internally?

Physiological and biological changes occur in the body, leading to:

  • hormonal imbalance
  • weakened immune system
  • anxiety
  • increased heart rate
  • irregular breathing
  • over-stimulus
  • impaired thinking and performance
  • headaches
  • disrupted sleep
  • tiredness, fatigue, exhaustion
  • irritability

This can affect relationships, family, friends and colleagues, leaving us feeling miserable. Over time, it can lead to psychological problems such as depression. The list goes on.

Digestive problems are also a common symptom of stress – bloating, cramping, nausea, bowel issues. You may be finding it difficult to lose or gain weight.

Whichever way stress affects you, it disrupts the natural flow of life. When we are in the flow of life, we are happy. Things go smoothly, we act and react normally to life’s situations. When we are stressed the reverse occurs.

What can you do to reduce stress?

Aside from Acupuncture, there are many wonderful practises you can do to combat stress on your own such as breathing exercises, yoga and meditation.

But sometimes the body needs a jump start to get it going.

This is where acupuncture can help with stress relief. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
