Stress & Anxiety

Acupuncture provides a safe, effective and drug-free alternative for stress relief. Stress is a natural non-specific response of the body to the various demands that we place upon it. Unhealthy stress, such as negative emotions and thinking, overexertion, poor eating habits, lack of sleep, chemical/environmental pollutants and toxins challenge our heath and can trigger physical and mental problems, particularly if they are experienced over a long period of time.

The following are common signs and symptoms of an overactive response to stress which can be effectively treated with acupuncture:
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Depressed immune system
  • Digestive disorders
  • Headaches
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Joint pain
  • Weight issues

If you are not comfortable with needles, there are many additional effective and non-invasive techniques that rely on the principals of acupuncture and oriental medicine which can be also used to treat stress.
