Acupuncture for Stress Reduction

Stress reduction is perhaps, the most common reason for a person to seek acupuncture treatments. Today, most people carry around a high level of stress caused by the demands of the 21st century. Stress that we face in our day-to-day lives--whether it is from pressures of work, family, money, interpersonal relationships or environment--can show up in the body.

Hence, the incidence of stress-induced illnesses is rising exponentially and manifesting itself in diseases ranging from migraine headaches and insomnia to iatrogenic diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, PTSD, and so on. Stress is also often sited as the reason for someone to smoke or abuse alcohol. Additionally, stress can also lead to depression, anxiety or more acute mental illnesses. 
Acupuncture works for stress and stress-related illnesses by settling the emotions through the insertion of needles into specific points along the meridians most often affected by stress. An example of one of the many points treated during stress reduction is called Nei Guan (PC-6) pictured above.

Acupuncture for Increased Energy

Acupuncture is an effective tool that increases a sense of vitality within a person. Often times, when vital energy is blocked or stagnant, the body responds by becoming more sluggish and achy. Acupuncture releases this energy to enliven all organs and tissues, which in turn, increases overall vitality, aids in better digestion, releases pain and relaxes muscular and emotional tension.
