The holiday season has begun! While it’s a wonderful time of year, it can bring extra stress into your life. Parties, holiday shopping, cooking, decorating, and entertaining can take a toll on your well-being. Everyone can benefit from some sort of stress relief right about now. Acupuncture is an excellent method to decrease the pressure the holiday season brings.
Constraint from stress makes it difficult for our bodies to renew and rebalance. Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the World. The medicine originated in China more than 3,000 years ago. It involves the insertion of very thin sterile needles, used only once and usually painless, into specific points on the body to stimulate and improve energy(Qi) and blood flow. By placing the needle just under skin, the nervous system is affected in a positive way, releasing endorphins throughout your body. Manipulating the body’s energy flow aids in regulating imbalances and promotes overall health and well-being therefore releasing our minds and bodies free of the pressure of the holiday season, providing a restful night’s sleep.
In addition to stress, acupuncture can also provide relief from seasonal allergies, cold and flu, depression, digestive issues, and hundreds of other symptoms or conditions.
