2. Promotes Relaxation

Acupuncture for AnxietyYour body makes hormones like serotonin, and regulates cortisol, so that stress is reduced and you feel a general sense of well-being and happiness. Acupuncture triggers your system, so it produces more of the feel-good biochemicals. This results in you leaving a treatment session feeling relaxed and less anxious.

3. Curbs Stress

Studies have found that acupuncture for anxiety, stress, and depression can yield powerful results. In Chinese medicine, when there is free flow of energy, blood and fluids, your system can function in a healthy way...mind and body.  However, stress creates blockages that constrict the free flow. The result are those feelings of irritability, anger, stress and anxiety. Neck and back pain and other muscle tensions are also heightened.  Acupuncture relaxes you so that you are more able to control your emotions.  Patients reassert their emotional power and conquer negative thoughts and feelings. Over time, you will find that you are able handle daily stresses in a calmer way.
