Feeling Back to School Stress? Acupuncture to the Rescue!
August 13, 2018
Studies have explored the biological mechanisms of acupuncture finding that it lowers stress hormones. This includes hormones secreted by the adrenal gland, hypothalamus, and the pituitary gland, as well as the “fight or flight” response – the verdict? Acupuncture “blocks the chronic, stress-induced elevations” of stress hormones. Acupuncture soothes the parasympathetic nervous system and balances the body’s systems.
Users report a range of health benefits from acupuncture, including:
Calm, Stable Mood
Increased Feelings of Well-Being
Decreased Stress & Anxiety
Increased/Stable Energy Levels
Improvements in Digestive Issues
Improved Libido & Erectile Dysfunction
Relief from Arthritis Aches & Pains
Relief from Migraines & Headaches
Strengthened Immune System
Support for Overcoming Addiction
Improved Blood Circulation
As the kids go back to school, and the hustle and bustle of homework, packing lunches, racing off from one activity to the next responsibility, it’s easy for stress levels to climb. Feeling overwhelmed, tired, stress, or worse yet suffering migraines, pain, or mood issues will make it that much harder to get everything done. Take the time for yourself – to tend to your well-being, emotionally and physically.
In addition to acupuncture to manage symptoms and get your body and mind into better balance, you can also incorporate a yoga or meditation practice to prolong the positive. A few minutes each morning can go a long way; by starting off from a place of calm presence, you can move about your day in a more grounded and peaceful way. Take it a step further by thinking about or writing down a few things you are grateful for. The more good you put into your life – healthy practices and mindsets, healing rituals and therapies, the better life gets.
