In today’s day and age it seems nearly everyone deals with some increased level of stress, and often time’s anxiety as well. We are working long hours; racing to meet deadlines, worrying about bills, worrying about how we are perceived, and the list goes on. We are always in some low level “fight or flight” mode, which keeps us unsettled and agitated, and inevitably leads us towards burn out. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are exceptional treatment options to calm our nerves, relax our adrenals, and help us to achieve our goals from an emotionally balanced and stable perspective. Make no mistake about it, too much stress and anxiety will give rise to a host of health issues, and although we may not be able to change our jobs, become perfect spouses or parents overnight, win the lottery etc., acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help us to make the most out of each day feeling balanced, centered, and positive in our outlook.
