Treatment of Stress
Few people realize how effective Acupuncture can be to relieve stress in all its manifestations, both emotional and physical. A good portion of my practice are people with high levels of stress. They might not be interested in medication and are looking for an effective, safe alternative. Acupuncture helps balance the emotional response to stress and can be fine tuned to an individuals particular response such as irritability or anxiety. Physical responses to stress such as neck and shoulder tension, digestive symptoms or headaches are also relieved. People report feeling more like themselves again and back in balance even though the external stressers are still present.
Other conditions that respond to Acupuncture include Urinary Incontinence, Impotence, Prostatitis, Gallbladder and Liver problems, Headaches of all kinds including Migraines and Cluster Headaches, Vertigo, Tinnitus, Conjunctivitis, Anemia and other blood disorders, Immune Disorders including low immunity, auto-immune disorders, side effects from Chemo and Radiation Therapy, Fatigue, Stress related conditions.
