Acupuncture is a great antidote to stress, depression and anxiety. It automatically releases pain-killing, stress-relieving endorphins, among other effects.

Stress activates the fight or flight response and the sympathetic nervous system. Acupuncture produces a relaxation response and activates the parasympathetic nervous system.

The more stressed you are, the better acupuncture feels.

It gives a profound feeling of relaxation. Most people fall asleep during treatment – even people who can sleep nowhere else. Often it’s especially those people – they’re worn out and ready to pass out.  Acupuncture is just the trigger.

Conditions caused or aggravated by stress:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Migraines
  • Headache
  • Some back pains
  • Muscle spasms/cramps
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fibromylagia
  • Lowered immunity (frequent colds/illnesses)
  • Grinding teeth at night
  • Racing heartbeat
  • etc.

Whatever you’re going through, it’s very likely that acupuncture can help. You owe it to yourself to find out.
