Acupuncture for stress

Acupuncture interferes with the mechanism of stress

Acupuncture is great at reducing stress. Even our patients who seek acupuncture for fertility report reduced anxiety. One of the first things they often notice is that sleep improves and they experience reduced irritability. They feel more relaxed both at work and at home.

Until recently, we didn’t fully understand how acupuncture helps with stress, we knew very little about what exactly happens on the cellular level. Researchers at the Georgetown University Medical Center made a breakthrough discovery. It turns out that acupuncture interferes with the very mechanism of stress by blocking the chronic, stress-induced elevations of the HPA axis hormones and the sympathetic NPY pathway.

Karnele and baby are happy about anxiety treatment
“Vitalis has saved me from 6 months of anti-anxiety medication” Karlene Couling

I decided to have acupuncture as a last resort before taking anti anxiety medication as I prefer the natural way if possible. I was a little skeptic that it wouldn’t work but thought I had nothing to lose! I suffered from mild anxiety and after 6 treatments it had practically disappeared. I would recommend Vitalis as he has saved me from 6 months of anti anxiety medication.

Thank-you Vitalis! Karlene Couling

Iain fees a difference in stress levels after acupuncture
“I felt a fundamental shift within myself and the changes are now a constant” Dr. Iain Doherty, PhD

Before I came to see Vitalis, I was overworked and felt a need for a holiday… I was so tired, I was having problems maintaining focus on my research.

After my first session, I felt really well rested and much calmer. I felt more energetic and my ability to concentrate improved tremendously. By about the fourth week of treatment, I felt a fundamental shift within myself, and the changes are now a constant.

I would recommend Vitalis to anyone who needs to perform under pressure.
