"Many studies have shown acupuncture can reduce stress."

Many studies have shown acupuncture can reduce stress, so scientists are exploring which biological mechanisms are stimulated by acupuncture and cause this reaction in the body. The feeling of stress in our bodies has a lot to do with the relationship between the hypothalamus of the brain, the pituitary gland and the adrenal glands. Each of those areas releases different hormones that interact and create the stress-response in our bodies.

In 2013, a study published by the Journal of Endocrinology speaking of changes in stressful situations had significantly decreased after the treatment of electroacupuncture.  This biological response suggests acupuncture blocks the chronic stress-induced elevation of these hormones and might explain how acupuncture works to reduce stress in the body.

We use acupuncture to access your
body’s natural stress-relieving processes!


It’s a natural treatment for stress relief

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses completely natural treatment methods that leverage ancient herbal remedies and your body’s innate healing processes rather than synthetic medications. We help you get back to optimal health without drugs or harmful side effects.

Access your body’s natural stress-relieving processes

Acupuncture acts like physical therapy for the nervous system. The tiny needles retrain the nervous system and the brain, balancing cortisol levels and retraining the nervous system to only release cortisol in true “flight or fight” scenarios rather than maintaining chronic high levels of cortisol that are seen in patients with anxiety and stress.

We address the root causes of your stress

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine address the root causes of your stress rather than just masking your symptoms. We develop treatment plans that are unique to each patient because each patient comes in with a unique body, health history and root cause or causes behind their stress.

Acupuncture effectively addresses and relieves stress

Yes, it is very safe. Acupuncturists use individually wrapped, single-use, sterile needles for each treatment.

Acupuncture can cause minor bruising and tenderness around where the needles are inserted. This bruising will go away within a couple of days after your treatment.

This depends on the severity of your stress and how long it has been an issue. Chronic stress may tend to take longer to resolve. We will help determine the duration of time it will take for you to see significant changes in your health. We can work together to develop a treatment plan that’s manageable for you.
