ASK US HOW acupuncture can help with Stress


Condition: Stress and stress related issues

All of us have experiencing different types of stress in life. Some stresses are easier to deal with than others. And some people can manage stress better than others. Stress can affect all aspects of our life, including emotions, behavior, thinking ability, and physical health.

Acupuncture is a proven method to reduce and remove stress related emotional and physical symptoms. A study published in the Journal of Endocrinology 2013 which was done at Georgetown University Medical Center, said that “We found that electronic acupuncture blocks the chronic, stress-induced elevation of the HPA axis hormones… Our growing body of evidence points to acupuncture’s protective effect against the stress response.”

Emotional symptoms of stress include:

  • Becoming easily agitated, frustrated and moody

  • Feeling overwhelmed, like you are losing control or need to take control

  • Having difficulty relaxing and quieting your mind

  • Having low self-esteem, feeling lonely, worthless and depressed

  • Avoiding others.

Physical symptoms of stress include:

  • Low energy

  • Headaches

  • Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea

  • Aches, pains, and tense muscles

  • Chest pain and rapid heartbeat

  • Insomnia

  • Frequent colds and infections

  • Loss of sexual desire and/or ability

  • Nervousness and shaking, ringing in the ear

  • Cold or sweaty hands and feet

  • Excess sweating

  • Dry mouth and difficulty swallowing

  • Clenched jaw and grinding teeth.
