I must say that after almost 10 years in acupuncture practice, I can vouch that this form of treatment works best in dealing with stress relief any other health conditions. People may experience a lot stress due to work, family life or may be having mid life crisis. It's a common condition that can happen to any of us, so this is where acupuncture play a very important role as an alternative treatment.
Stress interrupts to flow of energy in our body. It's a very strong emotion that when it strikes, it becomes sort of a blockage that interferes with the smooth flow of energy in our system. Is is then that we experience pain and other health conditions. But when stress is reduced, these health problems just die a natural death. They stop and just start to fade. Our body turns to a state of chronic inflammation when there is stress that is why pain is present.
If you are struggling with chronic pain or any other health issues such as diabetes, IBS (Spastic colon), depression, or PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome), it is very important that you become aware of your underlying stress level, as this is oftentimes the root cause of the problem.
Acupuncture has been shown to increase and boost the feel-good neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, along with releasing endorphins, which causes an immediate sense of well-being and balance.
People who have tried acupuncture, say that after some sessions, they have never felt so much peace from within. A certain kind of tranquil state and they started to have uninterrupted sleep. Because of the inner peace that they are experiencing, they have more positive thoughts, high self-esteem and saw things in a brighter perspective in life.
The body reflects what's in a person's mind. Any negative thoughts brings negative output and any positive thoughts in turn translates to positive well-being. The healing of the body should start with the healing of the mind. And as a mind and body healing care, acupuncture proves to be working effectively to people who experience stress.
