ANXIETY/

STRESS RELIEF

Modern society throws all sorts of stresses into our lives.

 

Acupuncture has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the devastation of stress and activate the relaxation response.

 

It aims at treating the root cause of imbalances so that the body and mind will be strengthened and able to best cope with this stress, causing your body to release the pleasant, happy chemicals, endorphins. 

 

Endorphins relieve pain and increase a person's sense of relaxation and well being.  

 

For these beneficial reasons, acupuncture has become very popular in the U.S.  It is used as a curative as well as a preventative method of maintaining good health.

 

Children respond very well and quickly to acupressure and acupuncture treatment. They normally feel very relaxed and often do not feel the tiny needles at all. Amy has treated children as young as 2 weeks old with success.

Conditions treated in children include:

  • ADHD symptoms

  • Digestion problems

  • Anxiety

  • Sleep problems

  • Idiopathic pain
