Stress and Acupuncture Treatment
Stress and Acupuncture Treatments
Many individuals today experience a fast paced and hectic life, which at times can feel overwhelming. The body's response to this constant high level pace is the continual state of Fight or Flight. When there is over exertion due to undo stress, the body over produces the hormone Cortisol. Over time this can weaken the immune system and leads to extreme fatigue, weight gain, and depression.
Five Element acupuncture helps to balance Cortisol levels. Through being balanced the patient experiences more calmness and feels more grounded in their daily life. The immune system restores to its natural strength allowing for consistent energy throughout the day, optimal body weight, and a general state of wellbeing and self confidence.
