How Acupuncture Treats Neck Pain Caused by Stress, Manhattan, New York

If you’re suffering from back or neck pain, the cause may be stress. The more anxious you are, the tighter your muscles get, and that prolonged tension results in chronic pain. Luckily, there’s an effective treatment that doesn’t involve any side effects. Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that offers a wide range of health benefits for our modern health problems. It’s especially useful for combating pain due to stress, as well as reducing the stress itself.

Easing Tension

Neck PainSince prolonged muscle tension causes pain, acupuncturists relieve your discomfort by treating acupuncture points along energy meridians in the body. These meridians facilitate the free flow of “chi,” your vital energy force. Ashi or tight points in the muscles are released as well.

Chi is blocked by emotional and physical strain. By relieving these tension buildups, acupuncture professionals restore your natural balance. This, in turn, diminishes your pain and also causes deep relaxation that reduces stress.

Calming Your Mind

If you’re still stressed out on a daily basis, your muscles will tense up again causing neck pain. Fortunately, acupuncture also serves to address mental and spiritual health issues that contribute to the problem. After each session, people feel noticeably calmer, and with regular visits, they’re able to achieve an equilibrium and sustain lighter moods. In this way, you’re better-equipped to face difficult situations while maintaining a relaxed attitude. 

That’s one of the reasons this healing method is so effective. Unlike painkillers, which simply mask the problem by preventing your brain from fully interpreting certain signals, acupuncture addresses the root of the problem. It serves to relieve the blockages and stagnation in your system that cause your distress, without having to deal with harmful side effects or recovery periods common with medications or surgery.
