Stress and Anxiety
While we cannot get rid of the things that contribute to your stress, acupuncture can instead increase your capacity to manage your stress better. Acupuncture increases your nervous system's ability to handle stress. This means that when something stressful happens, instead of feeling overwhelmed and out of control you'll react more calmly and be able to handle the siutation in stride. If left unchecked, stress can quickly become the source of many other ailments. Stress is perhaps the most common underlying condition we treat.
Common Conditions Related to Stress:

Sleep is without a doubt one of the most important factors that determines your health, which is why we ask every patient about their sleep no matter what they come to see us for. Without proper sleep, your body cannot recover and heal itself. Your body also becomes more susceptible to illness and infection, more effected by stress and anxiety, more likely to gain weight due to overeating and decreased metabolism, as well as lead to chronic fatigue. Acupuncture is effective at treating insomnia by increasing night time melatonin secretion to help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
While most people think of insomnia as an inability to fall asleep for the entire night, there are other more common conditions attributed to insomnia. You may have insomnia if you exhibit any of the following listed symptoms.
- Trouble falling asleep
- Waking up in the middle of the night
- Feeling tired after a full night of sleep
Healthy food and proper digestion is another corner stone to your health. Your digestive system is vital for processing and delivering nutrients and fuel that your body needs. Without a healthy digestive system, your body cannot function properly no matter how healthy you eat. No matter your symptoms, Traditional Chinese Medicine views your system as a whole and works to treat the underlying cause of your condition.
Classifying Digestive Disorders:
While Western Medicine separates a lot of digestive disorders into different groups and categories, Traditional Chinese Medicines views digestion as one complete system from start to end. The following are common symptoms associated with digestive issues according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Acid Reflux and Heartburn
- Gas and Bloating
- Diarrhea and Constipation
- Inability to Gain or Lose Weight
