One of the most common reasons people seek acupuncture is for the treatment of stress and anxiety. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America asserts that over 40 million people in the United States alone live with some level of anxiety.
Think of anxiety as your body’s natural response when it deems you to be unsafe, putting you into a heightened, fight-or-flight state.
Acupuncture is believed by many to help modulate your emotional response when you’re feeling stressed and anxious, whether it comes from your work life or your social life. Acupuncture has also been shown to increase blood flow and release healthy endorphins that make you feel great.
Think of acupuncture as your drug-free anxiety relief option. Keep it in your back pocket!
