Study suggests acupuncture may help relieve stress

Rats pre-treated with acupuncture had no spike in stress-associated hormones after being exposed to chronic stress, which suggests the ancient healing modality helps to normalize stress hormone levels.

Evidence suggests that acupuncture impacts your body on multiple levels, including stimulating your central nervous system to release natural chemicals that alter bodily systems, pain and other biological processes.

Acupuncture is proven to positively affect a number of chronic health conditions, including depression, chronic lower back pain, anxiety and more.

If you like the idea of acupuncture but don’t like the idea of having needles inserted into your body, there are needle-free alternatives, such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) that can offer many of the same benefits.
