Stress Relief

Acupuncture, Stress Relief and Wellness

Acupuncture promotes the smooth flow of qi, of energy, in the body. When the energy channels become blocked, we tend to feel stressed. The feeling is like having anxiety, or a feeling of sluggishness, or feeling there’s not enough time. By unblocking the channels, the energy in your system becomes abundant, giving a sense of well being, confidence and vitality. This also promotes circulation of blood and vital fluids. This promotes health because the nutrients get distributed in the body via the blood, and toxins get removed. Physical health improves. Also, the mind becomes calmer and more relaxed as the the energy harmonizes and flows smoothly. We all love a peaceful mind.

Acupuncture and Diabetes

Acupuncture is very effective treating Diabetes.  How?  By stimulating the appropriate energy meridians, the pancreas will produce more insulin and keep blood sugar levels more normal.   Acupuncture relieves stress.  This takes the pressure off the Spleen and Pancreas, allowing for better insulin production.  Acupuncture in itself is very relaxing.  When you are more relaxed, all of your body systems will work better.  Plus, you’ll feel great!

 

 

Acupuncture, Stress, Wellness and the Holidays

Acupuncture Helps with holiday stress, and all forms of stress. When the Energy (the Qi) flows smoothly, everything feels better. There is a feeling of wellness. Little upsets get released before illness occurs.

Acupuncture, Stress and Alternative Medicine

Acupuncture decreases the feeling of stress in the body by relaxing the energy channels, also known as energy meridians.  This gives the feeling of well being and alleviates many symptoms which arise from stress including:

When someone has a headache of any variety, on the the mild side they may experience a feeling tension and stress. On the severe side, they may suffer extreme pain, fatigue, nausea, blurred vision, and over sensitivity, among other unpleasant feelings. Acupuncture will relieve these symptoms.

Acupuncture, Alternative Medicine … New Growth in Spring.

Acupuncture, Alternative Medicine … New Growth in Spring.  Living Stress Free.

In Nature, Spring brings on new growth.  New leaves and flowers bud, the chirping of birds can be heard more frequently, our activity increases and the amount of daylight is on the rise as the days grow longer than night.  Warmth increases.  Usually, there is more wind — more energy.

This environment gives us all more opportunity after the cold of winter. If one has been balanced and rooted during winter, the transition into Spring is easier.  Otherwise it can be turbulent.  Without roots a tree cannot grow, so too for a person.  To grow and evolve we need to be rooted in a healthy lifestyle and attitude, rooted in spirit and the Natural Flow of Energy.

Acupuncture maintains the positive upward energy flow so that when there are bumps in life, they are more easily overcome.  Some of us did not make the time to rest and rejuvenate during the winter.  Thus, our stored energy reserves are somewhat depleted.  Acupuncture will also restore your energy reserves.  When one is in a restful environment, it is easier to rest.  Seems like a no brainer; yet many live hectic lifestyles and don’t get the rest needed. And by that I mean the quality of rest we need.  Acupuncture helps this.

It is important to allow and make time for new growth.  This is the Natural movement of Spring.  Energetically, without Spring’s new growth, the fullness and joy that is naturally abundant and prevalent in Summer, is diminished.  This leads to a depressed emotional state, decreased energy, a decrease in the sense of wellness, and the beginning of illness in a variety of forms.  Just like a fire needs the proper amount and the proper condition of wood to flourish, so do human beings need the correct amount of Wood Energy, otherwise known as Spring Qi, to flourish.  Acupuncture treatment provides this energy, which should be neither too damp nor too dry.

When our energy is balanced we feel balanced, in tune, energetic, happy, stress free.  Our relationships are smoother, the bumps and stressors of life roll off. We feel free in the midst of our responsibilities, goals and aspirations.  When our energy is out of balance, diminished, blocked, too tight, too hot or too cold, too contained or not contained enough, then we can and will feel more stressed and generally not well.  Some of the symptoms that tend to show when these elements and energies are out of balance are:

  1. Stress
  2. Anxiety
  3. Headaches/Migraines.
  4. Back Pain.
  5. Allergies.
  6. Fatigue.
  7. Skin Conditions – Rashes, Psoriasis
  8. Various OBGYN issues.
  9. Cervical Pain.

The positive states of balanced energy, especially in Spring, are:

  1. Increased Energy for all activities.
  2. Taking on new projects.
  3. Well being and a feeling of wellness.
  4. A greater willingness to work through difficult situations.
  5. Strength.
  6. Flexibility.
  7. Feelings of Self Worth and a genuine concern for others.
  8. Balance.

Chronic Conditions most effectively treated at this time of year are:

  1. Fertility.
  2. Digestive Disorders.
  3. Addictions – Smoking, Alcohol and Drug Dependence, to name a few.
  4. Fibromyalgia.
  5. Muscular and Skeletal Issues.
  6. Stress.

When our energy is balanced, flowing and abundant all of Life feels good.  We have a direction, warmth, joy, friends, positive relationships, a sense of inner peace and integration. We will have a feeling of inspiration and the sense of being able to handle whatever happens during the day and year.  Balanced energy is necessary for a Balanced Mind and Bodily Wellness.

Try Acupuncture. Realize the benefits. The motto of Spring — Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Wishing everyone a beautiful and blessed day.

 

Acupuncture, Stress and Winter Holidays. 

Winter is the time when energy naturally slows down. It is cold. In this environment, it is the ideal time to rest and replenish our energy and our reserves of energy. Acupuncture helps to balance the speedy pace of life, especially around the holidays so we can come into balance; feel our best. When we are balanced and relaxed the body does not become ill. When ill, recovery is much faster and thorough. Wishing everyone a joyous season, a peaceful mind and balanced heart.

Acupuncture, Stress and Illness

Acupuncture balances the energy in the body.  The feeling is like floating in a calm harbor after being tossed around in a turbulent ocean.  Feelings of stress disappear.  When your energy is relaxed and balanced, there is more available for growth, healing and for the immune system.

Acupuncture – Choosing an Acupuncturist

Unfortunately, for the uninformed, many people, especially in Tennessee, are allowed to practice acupuncture, without the full training that a Fully Licensed Acupuncturist receives. Chiropractors, MDs and PTs can take an abbreviated 40 hour training  and their Licensing Board allows needle insertion.  This would be like me taking a 40 hour course in Western Medicine, Chiropractic or Physical Therapy and holding myself out as an MD, Chiropractor or PT.  I might do an OK job, and certainly not as good as a fully Licensed professional in that field. When you go for acupuncture, please choose a fully licensed professional.  If not, you will not receive all of the benefits that Acupuncture provides.  Also, although there is a minimum level of training that a Licensed Acupuncture must have, length and breath of experience and other training and experience are also vital.
