Stress is an inevitable part of daily life and can seriously impact your mental and physical well-being. ACA Acupuncture and Wellness is here to help. Our team of experienced acupuncturists uses various techniques to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a centuries-old practice that involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points of the body. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing process and regulates the flow of energy, and it helps with stress relief and improves overall well-being.
ACA Acupuncture and Wellness approach for stress relief.
At ACA, we offer acupuncture, massage therapy, dietary advice, and Chinese herbal medicine, all of which can help to reduce stress. Massage therapy helps reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol is a steroid hormone that your adrenal glands, the endocrine glands on top of your kidneys, produce and release. Cortisol affects several aspects of your body and mainly helps regulate your body’s response to stress. Dietary advice and Chinese herbal medicine help reduce stress. As part of a stress reduction plan, ACA practitioners may also recommend using ear seeds or practicing qi gong to improve energy and promote calm.
We understand that stress can be debilitating and make it difficult to function daily. Our team of experienced professionals is here to help during in-office visits and with supportive practices to continue at home. We offer a range of treatments to help with stress relief and promote relaxation.
