Acupuncture to Reduce Stress

Reduce Stress, Increase Energy, Improve Sleep

Do you have stress?

It is normal to have stress in your life at time or another. Problems occur when you find yourself under constant stress. Acupuncture helps reduce the many health problems that stress can cause, including: trouble sleeping, lack of energy, quick temper, feeling overwhelmed, racing mind, neck and shoulder pain, and TMJ. Many people notice they feel more relaxed at work, they don’t get agitated with people, and they sleep better after their treatment.
A chemical called serotonin is released during an acupuncture treatment. It’s the same chemical that is involved in the “runner’s high.” It promotes relaxation, influences mood, and improves sleep. Deep relaxation is not only helpful to relieve stress, it is also cital in resolving many common health problems. Read Testimonials.
