More and more people turn to acupuncture for relaxation because it helps them feel less stressed, less anxiety, less depression and less fatigue. The 3 “tricks” acupuncturists use to relax you are shared with you so you can see how we do this to patients every day.
First Trick- Acupuncture: Acupuncture is most popularized for its effectiveness for lower back pain. However, many are surprised to learn that acupuncture can treat stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue by using the body’s own abilities to normalize its own functioning. Acupuncture stimulates the body to releases it’s own endorphins in a very profound way that “resets” your body. This triggers your body’s “relaxation response” and allows your body to reach a deep state of relaxation. Done over time, it helps regulate the body’s nervous system regaining much of the lost ability to relax. Headache, acid reflux, digestive distress, insomnia, and fatigue are all too familiar symptoms that the body is currently under stress. Do you suffer from any of these? Almost all of us do at some point. It just shows that the “check engine’ light is on in your body! Acupuncture utilizes very thin, small needles, which act as messengers stimulating signals to the brain to positively change conditions in the body. Best of all, no medication is injected in the needles making it a go to for many people who do not want to keep popping pills.
Second Trick-Cupping: Ever wish you had a “new body”? You can get your body back by turning back the time with cupping. Cupping is the use of specially made glass cups that are placed on your muscles to release tight muscle and melt spasms. How does this work? Your muscles accumulate a tremendous amount of stiffness sand tightness from over use. Using your muscles over and over again as you normally do, as you go through your day to day life, will inevitably lead to tight and shortened muscles. As a result, the muscles accumulate lactic acid and other waste product buildups. As a result, we get shortened muscles, nagging ache and downright pains,s which lead to increased limitation of motion, causing you to do less and less. We all know that feeling! Cupping creates suction around the skin on the neck mid or lower back and buttocks, and what it does it pulls fresh blood into the muscles while pulling out waste products through the skin. Sometimes the buildup is so intense you will see purplish discoloration occurring during and after the treatment. This indicates that you had a severe amount of waste products in the muscles. For those who still feel tense but do not get the “cupping marks”, you still get the release of waste products from the muscle. So what’s stopping you? You’re one cup away from feeling looser!
Many saw Michael Phelps, the Olympic swimmer with cupping marks on his shoulders. You don’t need to do cupping as intensely as an Olympic contender, and you can avoid the marks altogether. (By the way, cupping is painless. With little side effects and no medication, this “old school” method, is an excellent way to restore your muscles back to their former self. Increasing elasticity and springiness, your muscles regain their ability to lengthen again. As people are looking for more ways to stay active and avoid the stiffness that comes with aging, cupping is go to therapy that more and more people are discovering for themselves.
Third Trick – Chinese Herbs: Chinese herbal therapy has come a long way in 2,500 years since its inception. However, the tried and true herbal combinations have been helping so many patients cope with stress, and enhance their energy. Herbs are given as concentrated powders, known as heral granules. ,Herbs are mixed from different combinations that are decided based upon the examination that we do with you on the heral assessment. That means that these powders are tailor made and mixed to treat a specific condition and the combination changes as you do too. Not all people get the same formula because it is vey individualized. The powder can be instantly dissolve and made into a tea for easy administration. Herbs are used to help with fatigue, anxiety, stress, and depression, and loss of energy as well as dealing more effectively with specific conditions such as pain, headaches, digestive problems, energy, sleeping problems, and hormonal issues. Many herbal companies have started self-checking their herbal sources and suppliers through herbal assays and other laboratory tests to ensure purity and safety with herbs so that none of the herbs used by the ethical companies are adulterated o used with cheap substitutions or chemicals.. Using Chinese herbs is a wonderful way to help make the changes you are looking for in seeking natural help or additional help with your fatigue, anxiety, stress, and depression.
