Stress and Anxiety

Acupuncture has been proven to be an effective substitute for anti-depressants and can assist people who seek to end their dependency on these drugs as well as opioids. Acupuncture works by balancing and regulating a body’s Qi (pronounced, Chee), our vital life force and energy flow. Acupuncture has numerous physiological and physical benefits including decreasing or normalizing the heart rate, lowering blood pressure, reducing cortisol levels, balancing hormones, triggering the healing process and reducing pain. They all help to off-set the effects of stress. Furthermore, acupuncture relieves feelings of anxiety and depression, making it much easier to deal with emotional cycles from life’s stressors.

At 1000 Folded Cranes Acupuncture, we have worked with thousands of patients suffering from insomnia, anxiety and depression, and are always aware of the sacred and vulnerable space that must be held by patient and practitioner.
