Managing Stress With Acupuncture

Please share

Stress is a physical, mental and emotional response to perceived threats or demands. While some stress can be motivating, chronic stress can have detrimental effects on both physical and mental health. Managing stress is essential for overall well-being. Techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, exercise, and hobbies can help reduce stress levels. But what happens when the stress becomes too much, or takes up too much of your life? 

Chronic stress can be just as damaging to your system long term as any illness, with many distinct side effects. Symptoms such as weight loss or gain, hair loss, changes in appetite, anxiety, hormone fluctuation, and sudden/new behavioral shifts are all signs of stress. 

Stress is no joke. But what can be done to release your stress, and change how you deal with stressful situations? What can be done to bring your system back to a regular, peaceful state of balance? Acupuncture and massage, done together in back-to-back sessions or through individual sessions can help in a variety of different ways.

By targeting the hormones that regulate stress and sleep, acupuncture can help promote total relaxation and better mental health. With better relaxation and mental health, our bodies are able to secure better health, rest, and strength. Massage therapy can reduce muscle tension that we carry in our bodies and can make a world of difference in how we handle and carry our stress, and even how we respond to stress. 

At the Acupuncture and Holistic Health Center, we don’t just treat the symptoms of your stress. We work with you to make sure the root cause of that stress is addressed and relieved. Our acupuncture physicians and massage therapists work together to ensure that our treatment plans for you are individualized. This can include hormone panel tests, supplements and holistic herb prescriptions, as well as diet and lifestyle recommendations.
