Imagine this. You wake up in the morning and check the time. You forgot to set your alarm, and now, you’re running late for work. Heart pounding, you fumble into clothes. Do you look good? No time to worry about it now! As you’re pouring coffee, you get distracted momentarily and pour scalding hot coffee on your hand. Your blood pressure is rising, and it feels like you can’t do anything about it. While you’re driving to the office, another car cuts you off, then speeds away. Finally, you make it to work, where the real stress is waiting for you.

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that, for the most part, we live in a high-stress world. Whether we’re dealing with aspects of our professional or personal lives, it can be easy to be overwhelmed with feelings of anger or depression as a response. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. More and more people are turning to acupuncture therapy as a means of channeling that energy in a positive direction. In fact, a 2013 study published in the Journal of Endocrinology revealed that stress hormones in test rats were lower when they received acupuncture in the Zusanli point, an area shared by rats and humans. When the Zusanli point was stimulated, stress-related hormones were blocked from being released into the bloodstream, and the rats remained relaxed.

A few of the conditions successfully treated by acupuncture are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Anger
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches/migraines

Life is short. Let us help you take control of your life.
