ANXIETY & INSOMNIA

ACUPUNCTURE CAN HELP REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY

Acupuncture is proven to reduce stress and insomnia.  Research shows that acupuncture stimulates the release of oxytocin, a hormone that signals and regulates the parasympathetic nervous system.  Extensive case reports from the Chinese medical literature suggest that different acupuncture protocols reduce the severity of generalized anxiety and panic attacks. 

 

Multiple studies have demonstrated acupuncture to be an effective treatment for insomnia. Acupuncture lessens anxiety, stimulates melatonin production, induces sleep onset, and reduce sleep disruption and arousal during the night.  All of these effects amount to an overall increase in total sleep time.
