Acupuncture Benefits for Pain and Stress Brought on from the Workplace

The stress of a 9-5 job can wreak havoc on your body. Most clients who work 9-5 jobs complain about neck pain and eye pain being their main source of their discomfort, not to mention the typical pains one’s body feels when they are under stress.

This isn’t the way your body has to feel, and we can help. No matter the consistent stress and pain your body is under, acupuncture treatments have been proven to go a long way to correct these issues. Here are some of the ways that acupuncture can help:

Stress Reduction:

One of the main reasons people come to use seeking acupuncture treatment is due to stress. Acupuncture reduces stress hormones and helps lower anxiety. Many of our patients feel an overall increase in happiness levels by the end of their treatment.

Reducing Neck, Back and Joint Pain:

Keyboards and bad posture while sitting at your computer all day are the culprits for neck, back and joint pain. Acupuncture has been proven to not only stop the pain, but help reduce swelling and inflammation that is caused by it as well.

Headache Reduction:

If you have a history of chronic headaches, you understand how they can affect your quality of life. Can acupuncture reduce the frequency of headaches or migraines? Absolutely. Can it reduce the number of days one suffers from a migraine? Most definitely. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat migraines, and we can definitely see why.

Eye Strain Relief:

In this day and age, many of us stare at a computer screen on a daily basis which leads to eye strain problems. Eye acupuncture focuses on promoting circulation and blood around the eyes, and studies have shown that eye-acupuncture successfully decreases eye pressure after as little as one treatment.

Boosting Your Immune System:

Acupuncture therapy has been known to treat a range of health conditions by stimulating and balancing the immune system. The stimulation acupuncture causes increase both red and white cell counts, helping to fight off pathogens and boost your immune system. Receiving regular acupuncture treatments has been known to treat asthma, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, colds, and infections.

The goal of acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of energy, which flows throughout the body, the benefits of acupuncture can extend to a wide variety of conditions, from emotional disorders (anxiety, depression) to digestive complaints (nausea, vomiting, irritable bowel syndrome).
