Mood, Stress & Hormones

The Silent Killer

We all know that chronic stress takes a heavy toll on our bodies. With our fast-paced modern lifestyles, it’s easy to neglect our bodies and forget to prioritize our health.


Chronic stress has been linked to six major causes of death in the US, including: cancer, coronary heart disease, accidental injuries, respiratory disorders, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. 


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy flows through the body like a river. If this flow is disrupted, it can lead to pain, disease or other ailments. In most of us, stress is one of the major contributing disruptions. It blocks of flow of energy, which leads to build-up and tension.

How Does Acupuncture Relieve Stress?

Acupuncture is the most natural form of stress medicine. If you want to avoid taking prescription pills or move away from unhealthy habits like drinking or overeating, acupuncture is a safe and low-cost alternative.

Most people who try acupuncture for the first time are a little nervous. It may sound counter-intuitive to relieve stress by purposely inducing it! However, as you will come to see, acupuncture is not painful. Most patients report it being a deeply relaxing experience.

It works by unclogging blockages in your body and releasing the flow of energy back to its natural state. This allows for better circulation all around, so that your body runs more efficiently. It helps oxygen get to the rest of the body faster, so you feel less clogged and tired.

Acupuncture is also known to help the part of the brain that regulates emotions. If you suffer from mood conditions such as depression and anxiety, you may find a few sessions will greatly reduce the intensity of these symptoms.
