Stress is often referred to as the silent agitator, as it plays a significant role in triggering and exacerbating various health issues.
While it's not the sole cause, chronic or excessive stress is recognised as a significant contributor to many diseases and health concerns.
Prolonged stress affects the body's natural equilibrium, impacting the immune, digestive, cardiovascular, and nervous systems and disturbs mental well-being.
Over time, these disruptions can increase the risk of developing various diseases, ranging from heart conditions and gastrointestinal problems to mental health disorders and many more health conditions.
Moreover, stress can exacerbate existing health conditions, making their management more challenging.
Acupuncture offers relief from stress by targeting specific points on the body and stimulating nerves, muscles, and connective tissues.
This stimulation prompts the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, and neurotransmitters, which help regulate mood.
Additionally, acupuncture helps regulate the nervous system, promoting the shift from the "fight or flight" sympathetic state to the calming parasympathetic state.
Regular acupuncture sessions can retrain the body's response to stress, promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety, and enhancing overall well-being.
Like other therapies, acupuncture achieves optimal results when maintained regularly and consistently.
At the beginning of treatment, the frequency of treatments might range from one to two visits per week, to address your specific concerns.
In certain cases, a combination of herbs, tuina or cupping may complement the acupuncture regimen.
During your initial consultation, we'll explore your requirements and preferred treatment frequency, allowing a tailored plan suited to your needs.
