Stress and anxiety can manifest themselves in various physical ways throughout the human body. You may feel tension in your neck or back due to a high-stress work environment, or feel anxiety due to a major life decision or traumatic event. A safe, effective way to relieve that stress and anxiety is through acupuncture. Advanced Integrative Rehabilitation and Pain Center offers beneficial medical acupuncture in Washington, D.C. and we can help restore your body’s natural balance.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that has been proven to help with a number of issues. Those with digestive, respiratory, neurological, or muscular disorders have found acupuncture to be extremely helpful. The small needles used in acupuncture stimulate the body’s nervous system and allow chemicals to be released that promote internal regulation and healing. The needles are always sterile and do not have a sharp, painful point. You will most likely not even feel them being inserted. Also, there are rarely any side effects to acupuncture, aside from perhaps feeling a bit drowsy or disoriented following the procedure.
