Acupuncture: Your Secret Weapon Against Holiday Stress

‘Tis the season for twinkling lights, gift giving and celebration. While the holidays are known for their magic, they are also known for their stress. The good news is that acupuncture can help alleviate that stress and keep you balanced. Here are a few ways that acupuncture can help you feel merry and bright all season long.

Promotes Deep Relaxation

When we are under stress, our sympathetic nervous system is active. This is known as the “fight or flight” response that essentially prepares our body for battle or retreat. The parasympathetic response, on the other hand, is the “rest and digest” mode that helps bring our body back into balance. Acupuncture triggers the parasympathetic response by inducing deep relaxation, which has substantial benefits on overall health in addition to making you feel really good in the moment.

Boosts Immune System & Digestion

The last thing you need is a cold or flu to add to the holiday chaos. By improving blood flow and the circulation of oxygen and nutrients, acupuncture supports the body’s natural defense mechanisms. Additionally, the holidays are known for their indulgences, and if you happen to go a little overboard this season, acupuncture can get you back on track. Various studies indicate that acupuncture can help with indigestion, gas, bloating, and several other digestive disorders.

Improves Sleep

Whether it’s a holiday to-do list endlessly running through your head or maybe that lingering backache that’s keeping you up at night, acupuncture can help. Studies have shown that acupuncture is extremely beneficial for alleviating pain and also helping people sleep longer and better.

Gets You Glowing

The busyness and excess of the holidays can take its toll on your complexion, leaving your skin dull and dry. Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates blood flow, which increases collagen production and revitalizes the skin creating a youthful glow without the use of damaging materials. Cosmetic acupuncture reduces stress, enhances circulation to the face and helps you maintain your glow throughout the holiday festivities.
