Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique used for thousands of years to restore balance in the body. When there is an imbalance, pain and pathology can occur. Stress is a symptom of being unbalanced. When the Qi (chee) or vital energy of the body gets stagnated in certain areas, it can increase stress levels and make it more challenging to handle everyday stressors as well as lead to other symptoms such as insomnia, digestive issues, and PMS for women.
Let’s face it, there will always be something to drop in our laps throughout the day that may cause us to worry, feel anxious, angry or sad. It’s the way in which we deal with those things that really determines if we are controlling the stress or if the stress is controlling us. Regular acupuncture visits are a great way to promote the smooth free flow of Qi throughout the body providing the essential energy we need to get through our busy days and helps us control how we react to stressful situations. In fact, when you’re feeling stressed out is a great time to come in for an acupuncture treatment to unblock that static, toxic energy and release it from the body. Please make an appointment to try acupuncture and find out for yourself, the incredible benefits of restoring balancing and increasing relaxation in your life.
