The most common effect of acupuncture treatment is deep relaxation. For many of us, the sympathetic nervous system is overdoing its job of stimulating the body’s fight-or-flight response. Acupuncture is remarkably effective in shifting the body into rest-and-digest mode, which has a powerful effect for easing anxiety. Acupuncture has also been found to increase endorphins, which are some of the hormones that make us feel good. People regularly leave our clinic with a sense of inner peace and lifted spirits.
A common cause of depression and anxiety is the emotional & physical turmoil sometimes associated with hormonal shifts. Acupuncture can do wonders for the symptoms of hormonal imbalance in people of all genders.
Support with trauma recovery
Sometimes depression and/or anxiety is underlaid with unresolved trauma. Acupuncture is a well-known and documented therapy for the impacts of traumatic stress.
