Yes, acupuncture is a good tool for reducing the symptoms of stress. Obviously, we cannot make your stress disappear, but we help your body's reaction to stress by freeing blocked energy, clearing heat and inflammation, supporting the metabolic processes that support our daily functions, and calm the mind and nervous systems.

First, we have to find out how your body reacts to stress, what it feels like, and then we use our Chinese Medicine skills to figure out how to move things around in your body to make you feel more comfortable. Stress can be like a messy closet, just needs organizing. Or stress can feel like clothes that are too tight, and we have to give your body some room to
breathe. The circumstances dictate the style of treatment.

Bowel problems, sleep problems, pain and tension, headaches, mental restlessness and mood problems are all stress related conditions where acupuncture works very well. I hope that answers your question.

Thank you for inquiring,
