Acupuncture for Stress
Experiencing stress occasionally can be important as gives you the adrenaline burst that could save your life.
However long term stress where you are coping with a busy job, moving house, dealing with relationship problems, dropping the kids to school etc, can build up over time until you feel overloaded and one or more of the following conditions can develop
You may have difficulty falling asleep
You wake up frequently during the night
You may feel irritated or lose your temper easily
You may feel anxious or burst into tears easily
Your libido may be low
Your menstrual cycle erratic
You may be experiencing stiffness in your joints especially your shoulders and neck.
If this type of stress continues unchecked these symptoms can get worse and develop into fatigue, anxiety, depression, digestive problems, and long term pain
Acupuncture is widely used to help deal with the symptoms of long term stress. It is a gentle, calming treatment that activates the body's relaxation response, calms the nervous system and helps bring the body back into a state of balance.
