Stressed? Rundown? Overworked?
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a 3,000-year-old medical system that regulates the body energies and returns it to a more homeostatic environment. Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve the desired effect. A more scientific explanation of acupuncture is that the stimulation of certain trigger points on the body by acupuncture needles prompts the body to release certain hormones and chemicals that can reduce stress, alleviate pain, regulate the endocrine system, and calm the nervous system. Stress manifests itself in many ways. Common symptoms are headache, backache, skin disorders, gastric problems and sleeping disorders. Psychological symptoms may include depression, anxiety, poor concentration, poor memory and loss of self-confidence. With the use of Acupuncture at Acupuncture San Diego we can help you to:
