Acupuncture in Bremerton WA

Life is a race. Everyone is competing.

It is very hard to have peace of mind and a restful state of being when there is a constant fear of people trying for your position, for your life, and that the life you want might be taken before you can get to it.

Instead, what we all end up having is stress.

A constantly stressed mind. Stressed about your health, future, family, career, education, finances, etc.

It’s not wrong to be focused and stressed for your future. The stress actually has you working harder and achieving your potential. It is wrong when the stress has you getting ill, unfocused, unproductive, etc.

What exactly is stress?

Stress refers to the feeling of being overwhelmed or unable to cope with mental or emotional pressure or tension. It is a bodily reaction to a challenge or demand.

When you experience stress constantly and over a prolonged period of time, the stress is said to be chronic and the condition is called chronic stress.

This can negatively affect your health and is usually caused by a daily stressful situation, like pressures of family or work life or traumatic situations that arise and extend over a long period of time.

The negative effects of chronic stress on health can include:

  • Stress eating or not eating
  • Too much or too little sleep
  • Stress hives
  • Susceptibility to addiction
  • Acne
  • Hair fall
  • heart diseases
  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes
  • obesity
  • a weakened immune system
  • sexual dysfunction
  • gastrointestinal disorders
  • skin irritation
  • Ulcers
  • Low sex drive
  • Eczema
  • Heartburn
  • Fertility problems
  • respiratory infections
  • autoimmune diseases
  • burnout
  • depression
  • anxiety disorders
  • post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD
  • schizophrenia

These are still only some of the effects of chronic stress and it is safe to say, chronic stress is not a health condition to take lightly.

Simple treatments for stress include eating healthy, exercising, getting proper rest, practicing relaxing techniques, talking to family friends, setting realistic goals, taking up leisure activities, etc.

But, sometimes these aren’t effective for chronic stress because the body is so used to being under stress that it’ll find some or the other reason for being stressed even when following the simple treatments.

When such is the situation, the body needs a little extra pick-me-up where it is thrown into a situation of extreme relaxation and then brought back to normality. The whole system gets reset.

A great treatment that does this is acupuncture.

Acupuncture is widely known for its relaxing properties.

The main reason for this is, the pressure of the needles on certain points in the body causes the central nervous system(CNS) to release certain endorphins and neurotransmitters which help with healing and relaxation. But, most importantly, the CNS gets reset, dissolving all stress in the body.

There are also various other benefits of acupuncture besides just the famous relaxation, such as:

  1. Painless, only mildly invasive, and highly cost-effective
  2. Immediately effective
  3. Increased blood circulation and immunity levels
  4. Reduces all sorts of inflammations, swellings, skin problems
  5. Highly effective health condition treatment to deal with all effects of chronic stress, as well as chronic stress itself.
  6. Raises resistance to pain, future damage and reduces medical dependency
  7. Suitable for all ages and most health conditions

There are many effects of acupuncture that one can benefit from.

So, if you are experiencing chronic stress or any health condition for that matter, try going to a licensed Bremerton acupuncturist. Might just change your life.

Happy healing!
