Stress & Burnout
Soothe, Support, Connect, Reawaken
Returning the body to its natural state of balance and harmony
A little stress is a good thing, but too much causes problems like anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
As a part of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture uses a whole system approach to health.
We don’t separate the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of a person, as they’re all
intimately tied together.
For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has been used to help relieve stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Modern research has been supporting what traditional doctors have known for years. The body and the mind are strongly connected and one cannot be fully functional and feeling good without the other.
Acupuncture and Botanical medicines ease anxiety and emotional upset by regulating the nervous system, specifically by bringing the branches of the autonomic nervous system back into balance, regulating stress hormones such as cortisol, and strongly calming and relaxing
the mind, body, and spirit.
When cortisol rises to unhealthy levels, the good brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin go down. This makes a person moody, anxious, depressed, and sleepless. Cortisol can also contribute to body fat retention and fatigue.
Acupuncture and botanical medicine help to "reset" the nervous system, inducing calm and
reducing stress hormones within the Gut-Brain connection and directly regulating and supporting the HPA-Axis (Hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis)
