Learn about Therapy Now's Stress Management Approach

Acupuncture is believed to help with stress through various mechanisms. Here are some ways in which acupuncture could help to assist in stress management:

Stress Hormone Regulation

Acupuncture may help regulate the release of stress hormones like cortisol. Some studies suggest that acupuncture can reduce cortisol levels in the body, promoting a sense of relaxation.

Release of Endorphins

Acupuncture can trigger the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators. These endorphins create a sense of well-being and can counteract the negative effects of stress.

Nervous System Regulation

Acupuncture is thought to influence the autonomic nervous system, specifically by enhancing the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system (the "rest and digest" system). This can help balance the body's stress response, reducing the "fight or flight" reaction associated with stress.

Improved Sleep

Acupuncture may improve sleep quality, which is often disrupted by stress. Better sleep can enhance overall resilience to stress and contribute to better mental and physical well-being.
Pain Reduction
Stress can manifest physically as tension and pain in the body. Acupuncture is known for its pain-relieving properties, and by reducing physical discomfort, it can indirectly alleviate stress.
Balancing Energy Flow

Traditional Chinese medicine, on which acupuncture is based, believes in the concept of balancing the body's energy flow or "qi." By inserting needles into specific acupuncture points, practitioners aim to restore this balance, which can have a calming effect on the mind and body.
Psychological Benefits
The act of undergoing acupuncture treatment can also have psychological benefits. It provides a dedicated time for relaxation and self-care, which can reduce mental stress.

It's important to note that the effectiveness of acupuncture for stress management can vary from person to person. Some individuals may experience significant stress reduction with acupuncture, while others may not find it as effective. Additionally, acupuncture is often used in conjunction with other stress-reduction strategies such as meditation, exercise, and lifestyle changes.

Patient testimonials

”I love to get my accupunture done by Tina. She does awesome masage before doing either cupping or accupunture. She know all the pressure points and nerves connecting to your any issues on your body. The most thing I love about is that she will do the massage at the end of the therapy as well, so that you are not going home in pain and sore body. It's worth going to her. I highly recommend 👌 ☺️ her.”
