Reduced stress

Stress is one of the top reasons professionals seek acupuncture treatment. Whether it’s from the demands of our job or personal pressures, almost 70% of professionals admit to experiencing the symptoms of stress. While work can be a major trigger, acupuncture has been proven to help lower stress hormones and improve our mood to reduce anxiety and increase overall feelings of happiness.

Reduce Back Pain, Joint Pain and Neck Tension: 

Posture, heavy backpacks, smartphones, and computers are just a few of the things that create tension and the type of pain that penetrates through our workday and keeps us up at night. Acupuncture provides drug-free pain relief while also helping to reduce swelling and inflammation. 

Relief from headaches  

Whether you’ve been staring at your computer screen for too long, or lacking in hydration, acupuncture has been used to treat headaches for thousands of years. Recent studies show that acupuncture can reduce the number of days with migraines and may have lasting effects. The most common side effect being a sense of relief and relaxation, acupuncture is a treatment of choice for those seeking a drug-free option. 

Improve your immune system  

Acupuncture treatment can reduce the duration of a cold and relieve debilitating symptoms that keep you feeling miserable and away from work. Acupuncture can also help fight off pathogens by boosting the body’s immune system.

Allergy relief  

Acupuncture has been proven to reduce allergy symptoms and can be used in place of or in conjunction with antihistamines. Acupuncture can also play a key part in preventing allergies, but it is important to start treatments to strengthen your body before allergy season begins.  

Enhanced mental clarity and improved energy  

Acupuncture patients experience enhanced mental clarity and often a surge of increased energy. Improved sleep is an additional benefit, which is why acupuncture is used to treat sleep disorders too, like insomnia.
