Are you looking for some stress relief? Then you should try Acupuncture!
Stress, worry, and anxiety have become common terms in our daily vocabulary as the demands of everyday life grow greater. Although some people may not realize, even turning on the news in the morning can cause a stress response. So how do we combat stress? Or equally important, how do we treat the physical reaction to stress, which is worry and anxiety?
Try Acupuncture! Acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress, worry and anxiety by signaling to the nervous system to decrease the stress response while also releasing endorphins. Acupuncture is also extremely effective in reducing panic attacks and combating depression. Acupuncture should be a relaxing experience and find most of my patients will fall asleep during a treatment.Growing research has proven Acupuncture can provide stress reduction after just one session, and is most effective when patients have one treatment for 5 to 8 consecutive weeks.
Stress affects everyone on different levels. Some people may experience headaches, heart palpitations, loss of sleep, skin rashes, high blood pressure, or more serious health conditions. When stress turns to worry and anxiety, people may find it hard to function in their regular routine meaning they may have difficulty concentrating at work, or become disconnected from family and friends.
Additional modalities that may be used in conjunction with Acupuncture to reduce stress and anxiety include physical exercise, relaxation techniques, maintaining a well balanced diet, and getting plenty of rest.
Being a Sarasota resident for most of my life, I have personally found solitude and relaxation in our beautiful environment. I know to relieve stress in my life, doing something as simple as walking the beach and taking in the salt water air helps to clear my head. Physical activity has shown to reduce stress and release endorphins. Regardless if it is a walk on the beach, a yoga class, or a spin class, it is imperative to find what activity helps you to decompress. Physical activity for as little as 20 minutes a day has proven to help manage stress.
