Brisbane Acupuncture treatment for stress

Stressed? Anxious? Fatigue? Insomnia?

If you’re going through a busy or high stress time where balance seems unachievable, acupuncture can help your ability to process and react to stress.

There is a moderate level of evidence supporting acupuncture therapy for anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In the classical acupuncture texts, which underpin Chinese medicine, stress, anxiety and depression are discussed as the signs and symptoms associated with mood disorders.

Sometimes we cannot change the environment around us, however, we can work on creating a change within the body. If you are suffering with insomnia, anxiety, stress, fatigue, frequent illness, or just feeling overwhelmed with everyday life, an acupuncture treatment could be just what you need. Acupuncture can promote restoration of your internal energetic balance by improving blood flow.

At Vibe Natural Health in Brisbane our Acupuncturist Juanita Fuchs aims to relax your nervous system through improving circulation within the body to “tune up” your nervous system helping you react to life’s demands in a more balanced way. This can help with your stress levels and leave you feeling more energised to face the day, creating a healthier more balanced life.

Coming from a corporate background, Juanita understands the effects a stressful lifestyle can have on your body. She achieves her clinical success with stressed and overwhelmed patients through acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, Chinese herbal medicine and Chinese dietary and lifestyle advice.

Juanita looks at the whole picture of your health. She will aim to provide some immediate relief in your initial session. However, more significantly, she works to tackle primary causes of what is making you feel stressed and overwhelmed. In this way, lasting results are more likely to be achieved over three to six follow-up sessions.

How does acupuncture work to relieve stress?

Basically, acupuncture relaxes the central nervous system, thereby relaxing the muscles of the body and relieving mental stress.

Acupuncture can provide a gentle, scientifically proven and very effective way to help you achieve balance, by influencing the hormones that control the nervous system. When you’re busy, stressed or tired, these hormones become unbalanced and the body tends to “over react” causing a cascade of hormonal and nervous system effects to the stimulus around it.

Like with all medicine, there is some risk involved, however Acupuncture is considered safe in the hands of a well-trained practitioner. Acupuncture for stress relief is essentially the very gentle insertion of fine needles along the meridians of the nervous system providing a potentially positive effect.
