THE WORKPLACE AND STRESS
Numerous studies show that work is a major source of stress for American adults. This has escalated progressively over the past few decades.
When the body is under stress, the adrenal glands "flight or fight" response kicks in. Both of these reactions cause the secretion of adrenal gland hormones. These glands secrete hormones that control sleep, digestion, weight, immunity, energy, and heart function.
Periods of intense or lengthy physical and/or emotional stress can cause these organs to become either over-active or exhausted. It is common for them to become over-reactive first, to the point where they can no longer maintain ideal activity. This is referred to as adrenal fatigue and the organs are unable to meet your body's needs.
This can all be avoided with, you guessed it : Acupuncture.
Acupuncture has been in use for achieving a higher state of health for over 2,000 years.
Acupuncture is one of the most effective treatments for treating stress. Acupuncture does not simply calm the mind and relax the muscles, but brings lasting balance to various systems of the body. The mental and physical strain of a fast paced work often lead to:
Migraines / Headaches
Panic/ Anxiety Disorders
Acupuncture is especially effective at treating all of these problems because of its profound effect of regulating the way the body responds to stress.
Acupuncture is also extremely effective in treating conditions that involve underlying inflammation ion the body
Acupuncture uses tiny needles that manipulate the natural "qi" or energy flow, in the body. The energy runs in pathways called "meridians" which most of the acupuncture points lie on .
These points stimulate certain responses in the body which allows the body to heal naturally.
