How does it work?
Recent research studies have shown that acupuncture helps turn off runaway "fight or flight" reactions and it turns on the "rest and digest" response by regulating the autonomic nervous system and decreasing Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis excitability. A systematic review published in 2018 found that acupuncture reduces feelings of anxiety and depression, and acupuncture has also been shown to reduce systemic inflammation
What to expect
We treat stress, anxiety and other psycho-emotional conditions with a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine and acupressure and we may recommend dietary and lifestyle changes to support the treatments. Most people tell us that they feel very relaxed after an acupuncture treatment, and we often hear about how well people sleep when they receive regular treatments.
