How Can Acupuncture Help Release Stress?

With pandemic taking hold of the country, many people are experiencing new stress levels beyond anything they’ve ever imagined and they are turning to holistic care and acupuncture therapy to help manage stress.

The constant news updates about rising numbers, adjusting to working from home (if you’re fortunate to have kept your job), trying to help your kids with their virtual school work, having very little “alone” time, induced cabin fear as people are unable to get out of the house, along with many other issues, all have taken a great – and perhaps an unreported – toll on people.

In Miami, it feels even more stressful as we are touted as the “epicenter” of coronavirus cases for Florida. 

Closures of businesses such as restaurants, movie theaters, and other recreational venues, which have served as a respite from the stress of everyday life, have continued much longer than other cities in the state.

Adding to people’s stress, trying to get an appointment with a healthcare or mental healthcare provider has been equally challenging. As a result, more people are turning to natural treatments such as acupuncture therapy to help reduce their anxiety.

Acupuncture Therapy Effectiveness

To be certain, acupuncture is not a new fad. It has been used for thousands of years and has been documented throughout its discovery to provide relief for a variety of ailments. It wasn’t until the twentieth century that acupuncture became accepted in the United States.  

Since then, scientists and medical personnel have conducted studies on its effectiveness. Today, studies are beginning to reveal the benefits of acupuncture.  

One such study indicates that acupuncture may be successful in decreasing the perception of stress, and this effect persists for at least three months after the completion of treatment.

Now it should be noted that many of the studies being conducted are relatively new. Unlike studies supported by pharmaceutical companies that deal mainly in chemistry, the study of acupuncture therapy has to also account for the psychology and energy flow of the subject being tested, which are very difficult to measure. 

For researchers who only understand Western medicine, grasping the concept of something that works, but it’s hard to prove is somewhat troubling.

Even the prestigious Mayo Clinic has acknowledged that some people benefit from receiving acupuncture treatments. According to its website, “acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.”

The acupuncturists at Evolv Wellness in Miami are licensed by the state and knowledgeable in holistic treatments and Ayurvedic medicine. The entire staff is devoted to ensuring a culture of wellness.
