Acupuncture for Stress-

AcuSpa Serves the Greater Orlando Area

Stress is a normal part of daily life. It is our body’s response to the various demands we place upon it. Stress can be healthy, as in the case of regular exercise, healthy eating habits, and a general positive outlook on life. Unhealthy stress, however, if left unmanaged, can lead to all manner of health problems. Some examples of unhealthy stress include poor eating habits, lack of sleep, toxins, and negative emotions and thoughts.

When stressful situations exist over a prolonged period of time our stress response can become stuck, with a resulting depletion of the body’s resources; especially hard hit are the nervous system, the immune system, the lymphatic system, kidneys and adrenal glands. Some signs and symptoms of an overactive stress response include:

  • Easily angered

  • Anxiety

  • Asthma

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Compromised immune system

  • Depression

  • Digestive disorders

  • Food cravings

  • Headaches

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Joint Pain

  • Sleep disturbance

  • Weight problems

According to Oriental Medicine, Stress blocks the smooth flow of QI (chee) throughout the body. Qi is the life force within the body. With acupuncture and Oriental Medicine your practitioner can treat the physical and emotional symptoms associated with stress. In addition, she can restore the integrity of the various organs that have been depleted by stress.

Acupuncture for stress is used to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with stress. Acupuncture helps us achieve balance and control, comfort and focus, and joy in living. We have a lot of potential in our bodies but at times it can be misguided. The needles are very slender. They are about the thickness of two human hairs. Treatments are always carried out with sterile and disposable needles. They are used once and then discarded. All needles are approved by the FDA. Most insertions are just beneath the skin`s surface which enables the skilled acupuncture practitioner to place a needle with little or no sensation. We have great success in helping clients apply acupuncture to help with their stress.
