'May you live in interesting times' – ancient Chinese proverb.
Today, we are living in unprecedented times and the stress of modern life – emotional, financial, environmental, etc. – has never been more overwhelming. Of critical importance is the well-established link between the effects of stress and the immune system. How can we combat stress in a health, positive way?
One potent, stress-relieving therapy is Acupuncture. By stimulating our Nervous System, Acupuncture re-establishes the balance between our sympathetic and parasympathetic branches. The effect helps promote a sense of relaxation, well-being, and promote peak immune function.
