Symptoms of Stress and Anxiety

Even though stress and anxiety are mental conditions, they can have physical symptoms and effects. These effects can be debilitating in severe stress and anxiety. Symptoms include:

  • headaches or migraines
  • insomnia
  • fatigue
  • digestive distress
  • muscle aches
  • heart palpitations
  • muscle tics or spasms

Though these symptoms can be treated, it is more effective to treat the underlying cause of the symptoms to achieve relief.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a health care treatment that uses stimulation by needles at various points of the body to address pain, illness, or injury. The system is a traditional Chinese medicinal approach to healing that has been established and proven effective over centuries of use. Using the fine needles, the practitioner targets blockages in the body's systems. The needles are used to unblock the body's energy and restore balanced health. The parts of the body targeted with the needles correspond to the body's meridians rather than physical systems in the body.

Acupuncture for Stress and Anxiety

There are many treatments for stress and anxiety. Acupuncture is a highly effective approach to treating these conditions. Acupuncture is used to target meridians that affect mental health, specifically stress and anxiety, in order to bring relief. There's increasing research that supports the use of acupuncture for treating mental health, including stress and anxiety. Through regular acupuncture treatments, you can find relief from stress and anxiety as well as an overall improvement in health and well-being.

In addition, if your physical symptoms are significant, acupuncture can be used to treat those specific symptoms, as well. This can provide further relief brought about by stress and anxiety in your life.
