Acupuncture Can Counteract the Health Dangers of Stress

Stress can be very dangerous to your health. We all have stress in our lives, however, some of us have more than others, and unfortunately, some of us just don’t handle it very well. In this post you will discover how acupuncture can help.

Stress that goes unchecked, can cause a decrease to our immune functioning. The decrease in immune functioning becomes greater with time.

Stress has many adverse effects on the body, which may lead to:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Obesity

  • Sexual Dysfunction

  • Skin Problems

  • Hair Loss

  • Gastrointestinal Problems

  • Allergies

You may think, “Well, I’ll reduce my stress, and I’ll be fine.” However, studies have show that traumatic events can stick with us and affect our immune system long after the stressor is gone.

The best way to increase immune function is to create a lifestyle environment that keeps stress at bay—whether from short term or ongoing causes. How can we do this? Well, aside from relaxing, exercising, and other healthy outlets, acupuncture is a major aid in reducing harmful stress.

How Can Acupuncture Reduce Stress?

Not only is acupuncture a safe, drug-free, and natural method to reducing unwanted stress in our lives, here are several more reasons acupuncture helps reduce stress:

  • It helps create balance to our nervous system.

  • It regulates your emotions.

  • It reduces pain in our bodies that contribute to our stress.

  • It boosts your energy and mood.

  • It improves sleep so that you are less agitated and stressed out from being overtired.

  • It helps stimulate the release of endorphins and oxytocin. These are your “happy” hormones.

  • It is relaxing! This is especially true at our office. We have created a spa- like environment with relaxing music, and biomat therapy, all meant to aid in reducing stress, and help our patients get the most out of their acupuncture treatments.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Acupuncture can help with many health issues that contribute to our stress. Call the office today, 321-972-2940, to schedule your health evaluation, and find out what the best customized acupuncture treatment plan is best for you.
