Stress, Anxiety and Sleep problems
Stress and anxiety are all too common in today’s fast paced, high pressured society. The human body is not designed to deal with chronic low grade stress and if not managed, physical and psychological illnesses may manifest. Therefore, it is important to manage your stress and anxiety levels before they become health problems.
One of the benefits of Acupuncture is to help calm the body and mind relieving stress. Certain herbs may also induce a feeling of calmness, support you in times of stress, and also aid in better sleep and rest.
Acupuncture is renowned for its pain relief capabilities this is because certain types of acupuncture may trigger the release of endorphins which is your body’s natural pain relief chemical. A course of acupuncture may be able to relieve chronic pain like back pain, headaches/migraines, sciatica, and other musculoskeletal problems. Other treatments may include cupping, guasha, moxibustion and some tuina (massage).
