Stress Management


Live Stress Free

When we are feeling stressed our nervous system lives in Sympathetic mode, or "fight or flight". This constant response put our bodies in a state which leads to anxiety, insomnia, rapid heart beat, and feelings of being wired but tired. These are common symptoms associated with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Acupuncture is very effective at reducing stress levels. It sends neural signals to the nervous system to induce relaxation and restore homeostasis to the nervous system. 


Acupuncture works in an accumulative effect, much like Chiropractic or Physical Therapy. Repeat treatments maintain this neural response; reminding the body to maintain and re-establish a normal signal to the brain. This is why repeat treatments of acupuncture are needed for a period of time to get the full benefits. This mechanism is especially important for the treatment of pain but also applies to any other condition as well.
