Anxiety & Stress Management

It’s been said that over 30% of the world’s population will suffer from symptoms of anxiety at least once in their lifetime, regardless of their gender, age, or stage of life. It’s no wonder many people are turning to the ancient Eastern practice called acupuncture.

How Does Acupuncture Help Anxiety And Stress Management?

Anxiety symptoms include restlessness, rapid heartbeat, upset stomach, difficulty concentrating, headache, irritability, sleeplessness, fatigue, sweating, and muscle tension.

Acupuncturists have been helping people feel more balanced for thousands of years. In the Western world, acupuncture has been growing in popularity because of the research that has been released that supports its efficacy and success rate, especially for anxiety and other mental illnesses.

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) reported that the evidence for using acupuncture to treat anxiety disorders is increasing. A study at Georgetown University unveiled that acupuncture slows the body’s production of stress hormones and that acupuncture protects against the body’s response to stress. The University of York reported benefits from acupuncture lasting three months after the conclusion of treatment. Thanks to this clinical evidence, many more people trust acupuncture for anxiety treatment and get impressive, lasting results.

How many acupuncture sessions do I need to see results for managing anxiety and stress?
Many of our patients have reported that acupuncture has given them rapid results, often working within only one to two sessions. However, like any treatment, results and the number of sessions will vary from person to person.
Can acupuncture be used alongside other treatments for anxiety and stress management?
Yes, acupuncture can be used in conjunction with other treatments for anxiety and stress management. In fact, it is often recommended that patients utilize multiple methods for managing stress and anxiety, including acupuncture, talk therapy, and medication if necessary.
What should I expect during an acupuncture session for managing anxiety and stress?
During an acupuncture session for anxiety and stress management, the acupuncturist will first take a detailed medical history and ask questions about your symptoms and lifestyle. They will then insert thin, sterile needles into specific points on your body to stimulate the flow of energy and promote relaxation. The needles will be left in place for a period of time (usually around 20-30 minutes), during which time you will be encouraged to relax and breathe deeply.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture is generally not painful, but you may feel a slight prick or tingling sensation as the needles are inserted. The needles used for acupuncture are very thin and flexible, and are typically inserted to a depth of a few millimeters at most. Most people find acupuncture to be a very relaxing and soothing experience, and many report feeling a sense of calm and well-being.
