Many of us will experience stress at some point in our lives. If we’re not struggling to meet deadlines or dealing with work issues, then we can sometimes battle it in our personal lives. Whilst it may seem like an easy option to put the symptoms of stress to the back of our minds, it can often affect our health if not correctly treated. No matter the reason for your stress, it’s important to find an outlet in which you can treat it in an effective manner.
Acupuncture is a proven method to ease the symptoms of stress and has worked wonders for many sufferers. Stress and anxiety are common conditions I treat in clinic, around 80% of patients respond within the very first visit, reporting reduced stress levels and feeling less anxious. In a study published in October 2013 in the Journal of Acupuncture and Meridian Studies, students who underwent a 20-minute acupuncture session were found to have less anxiety and better memory immediately after treatment than those who didn't have acupuncture. Although traditional acupuncture has been an integral part of Chinese medicine for nearly two thousand years, particularly as treatment for stress - just 4% of the UK have tried it. If you are feeling the effects of stress or anxiety get in touch, we can discuss your situation further and see if acupuncture could benefit you. The worse that can happen is that you will come away feeling relaxed.
