Stress

Some conditions we treat:

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Panic Attacks

  • Depression

  • Post Traumatic Stress

Medical professionals have over 60 years of research showing a connection between stress and muscle tension.

When we are under emotional stress, our nervous system becomes sympathetic (fight or flight) dominant. When we are not under stress we can go into the system’s healing mode that is more parasympathetic (rest and digest) dominant.

When we are holding tension in our bodies, particularly in the upper body and neck, even at times when we don’t feel like we are under stress, our muscles are telling the brain that we are in fight or flight mode.

A sympathetic dominant system has increased adrenaline, less restful sleep and a slowed digestive system. A parasympathetic dominant system is at ease, is digesting food well and can sleep deeply and restoratively.

At Range Of Motion we find people respond well to acupuncture for stress, particularly when we release the upper back and the neck muscles. This helps the nervous system to feel at ease and that allows a person to manage their stress better.

Acupuncture has been shown to help put a person into a parasympathetic state which can account for the relaxed feeling people feel after a treatment. The stomach may growl during an acupuncture session. That is the system calming down and going into “rest and digest”. It’s a great feeling.

Pharmaceuticals attempt to create a calm and parasympathetic dominant state and ease the troubling sensations of panic and anxiety with beta blockers and other suppressive drugs.

Acupuncture is a completely natural way to achieve the real thing, a calm mind and body.
