Stress is a major issue in our lives today. Don’t get me wrong, we need stress to motivate us to get things done, but when the stress gets too high our bodies can no longer handle the load and we begin to breakdown. It is important for us to notice when our body is starting to struggle and do something about it before it’s too late. Acupuncture is one technique that can help you manage your stress.
Acupuncture is a holistic natural technique that originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine practices where trained practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting small needles into the skin. The premise behind Acupuncture is that blocked energy, Qi, is released by inserting small needles into specific areas of the body. The more stress we are under the faster our, Qi, becomes blocked. If we ignore it, eventually a symptom will occur, such as pain or dysfunction. Acupuncture unleashes the blocked energy and encourages the body’s natural healing response to kick in. This creates a relaxing feeling throughout our body as our energy re-balances. If you do not put gas in your car eventually it will stop running. The same goes for your body. If you do not recharge it once in a while it will start breaking down too. Acupuncture is a gentle option for recharging your battery.
Acupuncture is also helpful in treating ailments, such as, neck pain, headaches, knee and joint pain, back pain and it helps to improve sleep and digestion and many more.
