Natural, Effective, Preventative Medicine
Acupuncture can help boost your health and wellness in these areas:
Stress is the cause and/or major factor in disease and chronic illness. Acupuncture reduces cortisol, or the stress hormone that increases during times of stress. It brings your body out of the fight of flight stress response and into a more relaxed state. Stress manifests in so many ways and it is by treating the root, we can help many symptoms associated with the problem.
Good restorative sleep is vital for clearing waste from the brain, repairing cells and supporting memory and mental agility. Acupuncture stabilizes the natural circadian rhythm, which affects metabolism, hormones, mood, memory and many other important bodily functions.
Acupuncture can stimulate the release of serotonin and dopamine which are neurotransmitters in the brain that affect your mood, sleep and behaviour. These important chemical messengers help you feel good and regulate your moods.
We see the body is an interconnected energy system. When all the energy pathways (we call meridians) are open and there is unobstructed flow, then all the organ systems work well. If there are disruptions in the path, that is when symptoms arise. By stimulating acupuncture points along these pathways, we can restore proper energy flow which helps your body's system work optimally.
Acupuncture is safe and effective way to treat the side effects of chemo and radiation including pain, nausea and fatigue as well as support the body for immunity and wellness.
