According to Acupuncture, our body has energy called “chi”. Stress and anxiety cause the chi to be congested in different meridian pathways in the body. This causes an imbalance in the body’s energy and does not allow the chi to flow properly. During an acupuncture session, thin needles are placed in the acupuncture points where the blockage of energy may be occurring. The thin needles are inserted half a millimeter away from the nerves and this helps the nervous system. All of this helps balance out the body and get the body’s energy flowing properly. This can help alleviate stress and anxiety symptoms. People can see improvement within one to two sessions. This all depends on the person’s body, how long they have been going through stress and anxiety, and how severe it is. It is recommended to stay consistent with your acupuncture sessions.
Massage Therapy is very beneficial to assist in reducing stress and anxiety in the body. A relaxation response can be signaled through touch. This causes reduction in blood pressure, an increase in blood flow, and slow down of heart and breathing rate. It also causes muscles to relax and a decrease in stress hormones.
People who are needing a massage to assist with stress and anxiety are highly encouraged to receive messages frequently. It is recommended to receive a massage every one to two weeks. Massage therapy helps combat stress, anxiety, and insomnia due to stress. Being consistent with receiving massages can be very beneficial.
