Stress, Sleep and Mental Health
Acupuncture can regulate emotions, boost your energy, improve sleep quality and quantity, and importantly is a drug-free alternative. With acupuncture, every patient is considered unique and treatments are tailored to specific needs. It is easy, relaxing, accessible and can seamlessly be integrated with medical treatments such as counselling or medical prescriptions.
Treatments frequency varies depending on your situation, however weekly treatments for 6-8 weeks is one course of treatment and can address many issues. Ongoing biweekly or monthly treatments are often required for ongoing care and prevention.

Modern life is not always conducive to good sleep or relaxation. Stress is absolutely essential to survival, it keeps us safe, ensures we eat and drink well, and supplies our bodies with information and the physical tools to allow us to navigate the world. However, too much time in a stressed state or a traumatic experience can overstimulate the nervous system to affect sleep, digestion, immunity, mood, emotions, pain response, and many other essential systems. Acupuncture is a fantastic tool to help combat the negative effects of stress as it supports balance in the nervous system, helping to down-regulate the fight-or-flight response responsible for stress symptoms.
