Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical approach that goes back over 5,000 years. Through the insertion of special acupuncture needles into acupuncture points on the body, the flow of energy throughout the body is rebalanced in both the nervous and hormonal systems. This means it is helpful for more than physical issues alone. Benefits of TCM Acupuncture that help you care for yourself include:
- Pain relief;
- Balances nervous system firing and hormonal communication;
- Immune boosting; and
- Relief from anxiety.
TCM Acupuncture and Anxiety
Recent studies have concluded that in many cases acupuncture can be an effective secondary treatment for symptoms of anxiety. When our brain experiences a response to stress, acupuncture has the ability to calm that response, therein lowering your stress levels. What’s more, acupuncture increases the release of endorphins – your body’s natural “happy chemical” – regulating physical and emotional stress responses such as pain, heart rate, blood pressure and digestive function.
Taking a day to yourself to combine TCM Acupuncture with self-care activities such as a bath with bath salts, using a diffuser with essential oils, or simply doing a face mask, can provide you with the relaxation and stress relief you’ve been needing.
