Chronic Stress and Natural Anxiety Relief

Get natural anxiety relief from chronic stress—with acupuncture.

Did you know acupuncture can help balance your mind and body? Acupuncture makes it easier to cope with the circumstances that contribute to chronic stress.

Let’s face it, no one goes through life without feeling pressure, tension and strain. In fact, stress is a normal way to adapt to life’s demands. It ensures that our “fight or flight” nervous system is activated when needed. Typically, stress increases your heart rate, accelerates your breathing, and adjusts your hormonal levels so that you can perform more effectively. Small amounts of it can help you achieve your goals.

Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle stimulates the stress response from our nervous system without turning it off. Over time, this type of stress can wreak havoc with our health.

Chronic stress feels like tightness in the muscles, especially the shoulders and lower back. It results in tension headaches and feelings of being overwhelmed. It can also cause fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia and digestive problems. Over a long period of time, it can compromise your immune system and damage internal organs.

Although stress is unavoidable, acupuncture can help. With acupuncture treatments, you can feel more relaxed and better prepared to meet the challenges of our sometimes too busy Californian lifestyle.
