Got stress? Time to improve stress management with acupuncture!

Many of us are constantly under stress. It affects our energy, sleep, pain levels, and quality of life. Sometimes stress levels can escalade quickly and physical ailments start to appear. That is why working to improve your stress response and stress management skills is key for optimal health!

Can acupuncture help with stress management?


The #1 response I hear from my patients after their acupuncture session is how relaxed they feel. This is because acupuncture works on your system to calm down (your parasympathetic nervous system) so you can heal and repair.

What do the studies say?

A recent study was done on health care workers using auricular acupuncture to reduce stress levels. Health care work is a profession where empathy and caring for patients is integral and an absolute necessity. Subjects administered the treatment tested much lower on the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory test for stress levels and higher in courage and patients on the Caring Ability Inventory.

Using body and ear points are highly effective to calm the mind, soothe muscle tension, and ease stress. It also provides reminders to your body on how to relax so you can prevent stress flares and can control stress with ease!

If you are under stress or feel like your energy, sleep, or pain levels are increasing due to stress, it is time to get in for some acupuncture!
