a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.
We all experience stress in our daily lives, some more than others. Stress causes the body to release an assortment of hormones into the bloodstream that temporarily affects our nervous system. This response is called the fight-or-flight response. It is a natural response that helps us to rise up to meet the challenge with alertness, focus and strength. When the cha...llenge is over, the stress response lets up and our body begins to relax and recharge.
Long-term stress however, produces a lasting low-level stress that can wreak havoc on our body. (as shown above)
Acupuncture counteracts this by increasing the circulation of blood and oxygenating tissues throughout the body, releasing natural pain-killers and jump-starting the body's natural ability to heal itself. All of these results can help a person feel more balanced and treat a variety of illnesses.
