Acupuncture has a surprising effect for many who doubt its effectiveness.
The insertion of fine acupuncture needles into specific acupuncture points can bring about many changes to individuals with anxiety and stress.
The experience of having acupuncture is generally pleasant, relaxing and energizing. The needles are hair thin, sterile and generally painless. The needles are disposable and never used twice. There may be a brief soreness or pulling sensation which means that your qi has connected with the needle. A good treatment can feel like being in “the zone” or a deep meditation as your body moves back into balance.
The Effects of Stress on the Body
The body responds to stress with a particular set of biochemical reactions called the stress response. At stressful times, the body quickly releases chemicals into the blood. This sets into motion a series of physical changes. These include a faster heart beat and breathing rate, higher blood pressure and increased muscle tension. Surface blood vessels constrict and adrenaline is increased creating a heightened state of alertness and strength.
The stress response prepares the body for dealing with stressful events such as giving a speech, rushing to work because you are late, or fighting or fleeing from attack. For short periods there is no damage, the situation is survived and the individual can relax. However, if the stress becomes chronic or out of proportion, this healthy response can become pathological. Over alertness may progress to mental strain, anxiety, insomnia and exhaustion, raised breathing rate, panic attacks, raised heart rate to palpitations and increased muscle tone to muscular tension, pain or tremor.
Some of us commonly live under a constant state of stress, demanding workloads, financial worries, family arguments continually triggering the stress response and depleting valuable reserves of energy. Those who surpass individual limits of stress suffer the consequences.
Stress manifests itself in many ways. Common symptoms are headache, backache, skin disorders, gastric problems and sleeping disorders. Psychological symptoms may include depression, anxiety, poor concentration, poor memory,bad nerves, nervousness and loss of self confidence. There is mounting evidence that chronic stress can lead to long term health problems, such as hair loss, strokes, asthma, skin conditions, high blood pressure, heart disease irritable bowel syndrome, etc. Some studies indicate that as many as 60-90% of visits to ‘health care professions’ are for stress-related conditions.
