Acupuncture for Anxiety
With the many stressors that individuals are faced with today, it is not uncommon to be struck with bouts of anxiety throughout the day. However, commonality does not always equate to ‘normal’ or what we should accept as a feeling in our own bodies. Anxiety is treated and it can be treated naturally with Acupuncture. Since Acupuncture works by releasing endorphins in the brain which are calming to the mind and body, it is easy to see why Acupuncture would be a good remedy for anxiety. If calm, you cannot be anxious. If anxious, you cannot be calm. Acupuncture automatically calms the body since it is allowing the body to be stimulated at the nervous system level, which then travels to the brain, releasing these neurotransmitters for relaxation. This is not just a short term solution. Acupuncture helps to balance the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain, as if hitting the reset button on the brain and body. This can last for days, weeks and even months, until another stressor hits. However, people find that they are much more capable of dealing with stress when they receive Acupuncture treatments with some consistency.
Acupuncture works to do the following:
-calms the mind
-relaxes the body
-calms the nerves
-balances the biochemistry of the brain
-regulates hormones responsible for mood control
With such amazing results using Acupuncture and few to no side effects, why wouldn’t everyone use Acupuncture to help with Anxiety?
