Acupuncture Helps You Get Out of Fight or Flight and back into Rest and Digest (where you belong most of the time).

As You already know, spending too much time in Fight or Flight mode is bad for your health. It has its place and serves you well in emergencies. 

However, perceived emergencies can drag on longer when life gets stressful. It can become harmful to your health once this becomes the norm and lasts for too long. Don’t stay in Fight or Flight too long!

Acupuncture actually helps You by helping balance your body. It does this by helping the Nervous System switch from the Sympathetic “Fight or Flight/ Stress” mode, back to the Parasympathetic “Rest and Digest” mode. 

This is why most people who get acupuncture report feeling a euphoric feeling after treatments. Some compare the feeling to having a glass of wine or being in a meditative state or just plain feeling more “relaxed” and at ease.

If you are feeling stress and Anxiety, give acupuncture a try! What have you got to lose but stress?
