Stress from work, home, and personal problems can wear the body and mind down. A solution for this is stress management acupuncture.
It is a natural way to realign your Qi, so you can feel relaxed and take one day at a time. It’s an alternative to prescription pills, such as Valium, and won’t cause any side-effects.
Here are the many ways stress acupuncture can change your life:
Sleep Deeper and Longer
Few people realize that insomnia involves more than just not sleeping during the night. Insomnia has many symptoms including:
- Waking up frequently throughout the night
- Feeling fatigued even after a good night’s sleep
- Having a lack of focus and making frequent mistakes
- Not being able to fall asleep
Stress and worry keep your mind preoccupied, but acupuncture relaxes the body and mind. A certified acupuncturist will set up a calming environment, which adds to the physical benefits of stimulating your acu-points.
Rebalance Your Mood
Depression is much more than just having the blues or being sad. It is a condition where you are persistently down and feel uninterested in anything. While stress can contribute to depression, there isn’t one cause for it. Our genetic makeup, our family background, work, and education all have an effect on our mood and overall outlook.
Depression includes other symptoms, such as drastic changes in appetite and feeling hopeless to the point of suicidal. Stress acupuncture will unblock your meridians, thereby rebalancing your body’s flow of energy.
Think More Clearly
Headache medications often contain acetaminophen, which can add to the pain, as well as cause liver damage if too much is consumed within a certain period of time. Many turn to acupuncture when their usual methods do not suffice.
Did you know that stress is a big factor to cause headaches? Stress management acupuncture will unblock the energy flow, allowing more blood circulation to the brain, so you can think clearly.
Acupuncture has provided mixed reactions in patients with headaches and migraines. Some say it had no effect on them while others are pain-free. It depends on your genetic makeup and whether or not you attend all of your sessions. Dr. Yan will design a customized schedule, and it’s important for you to speak with her if you encounter any issues.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
If you work a 9-5 job, acupuncture is an effective way to keep yourself healthy, whether you develop negative thoughts about your capabilities or become overanxious with your increasing workload. Stress management acupuncture relaxes you and restores your confidence, so the next time you go to work, you’re ready to tackle your tasks.
