5 Ways Acupuncture Can Help You Emotionally

Acupuncture calms your nervous system. If you walk in feeling distressed, upset or overwhelmed receiving acupuncture will switch off your fight or flight response.

One of the ways your body can detox after acupuncture is crying. Most acupuncturists will not be surprised or uncomfortable with you letting your emotions out. It’s ok to let it out.

It makes you feel safe and whole and gives you a quiet place to go inward. Sometimes the time alone helps you find clarity. I also find that for regular patients they come to my space for solace. Coming in during distressful times quells their fears.

It helps you release endorphins which are your body’s natural pain killers.

Endorphins also trigger a feeling of generally happiness.
