Stress and anxiety

In today’s modern world, it’s almost impossible not to feel overwhelmed by the expectation that we must maintain many standards of perfection. All the options are put in front of us to do and feel good and achieve - if only we would try harder, work harder, and just perform better than we are - in other words become a superhuman to “get it all done.” No wonder we feel exhausted, anxious, run down, and in pain - the whole world feels like it is counting on us and only us!

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Stress, especially prolonged exposure to stress, has serious negative impacts on the body, mind, and spirit, but acupuncture can negate and reverse these effects by restoring the body’s overall response.
