STRESS AND ANXIETY MANAGEMENT
As modern-day living has gotten busier, stress and anxiety has become one of the most pressing challenges. Acupuncture is the most studied alternative therapy today, and has been shown to be effective at calming with our sympathetic nervous system. Known as our fight-or-flight response, prolonged daily stress blocks our body from being able to relax and access our parasympathetic system - the 'rest and digest' half. This affects our circadian rhythm, digestive system, as well as the balance of hormones in our body. Research studies have shown that acupuncture is effective at regulating the body's internal system, creating hormonal balance, and boost mood and energy levels, allowing us to be more effective at the things we do.
