Stress is real and can have a profound impact on your health. Most people know that uncontrolled stress can increased our risk many diseases such as heart attack and stroke, as well as cause insomnia, digestive issues, tension headaches, migraines, and back pain.

Acupuncture cannot remove the stress from your life, but it can help you deal with it better. In fact a few of acupuncture’s good “side effects” include better sleep, less anxiety and depression, and help in stress management. Often a patient who was coming in for a skin condition also found that his long time anxiety disorder was greatly improved. Another patient who was coming in for the treatment of lower back pain also struggled with insomnia. After a few treatments, he began to sleep much better. As one patient who was coming for help with shoulder and back pain, put it, “I find that my body and spirit are in stronger alignment and that I have more energy and fewer general complaints.”
