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:
- Some back pains
- Muscle spasms/cramps
- Loss of appetite
- Lowered immunity (frequent colds/illnesses)
- Grinding teeth at night
- Racing heartbeat
Whatever you’re going through, it’s very likely that acupuncture can help. You owe it to yourself to find out.
