Acupuncture and Chinese medicine works on both a physical and an emotional level. Stress and anxiety are principally emotional issues but can have wide ranging and serious implications for your health and well being.
The actual process of having an acupuncture treatment is deeply relaxing and many patients experience a deep sense of calm and well being just from the consultation itself. Acupuncture stimulates natural endorphins, improves blood flow and helps to reduce blood pressure. These effects help the body to cope with the physical effects of stress.
In Chinese medicine the natural balance of energy in your body known as qi is crucial for your emotional well being. By using acupuncture I can help your body to regain its natural balance and boost your ability to emotionally deal with stress and anxiety. This in turn will lead to direct improvements in your health.
