We all suffer from stress at some point

AT certain points in our life we all experience stress.

AT certain points in our life we all experience stress.

The body responds to stress by quickly releasing chemicals into the blood, which sets into motion a series of physical changes. These can include higher blood pressure and faster heart beat and breathing rate. It also increases muscle tension.

If the stress is short-lived and we are healthy, the body will recover quickly. However when the stress lasts longer our emotional and physical health will be affected further, creating symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, depression, digestive problems and tension headaches.

Acupuncture works to decrease stress by releasing natural painkiller chemicals in the brain, called endorphins, which activate the opiate receptors in the central nervous system, hence helping the body to release stress. It also has a calming effect that relaxes the muscles.

Acupuncture releases stress by stimulating specific points in the body, through the use of needles. These needles are very fine, like a single hair, and are pain-free. They are made from stainless steel, and they are sterile and single-use only.
