The Minneapolis/ Greater Twin Cities area has been a great place to live and have a family for years. However with the tension just before the upcoming mid-term elections, the rising crime rate, as well as with the current world events, stress has been high. This kind of social tension can raise ones cortisol levels and cause things like muscle tension, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, anxiety and depression. Fortunately, acupuncture and Chinese medicine administered here at our Edina clinic can relieve these health conditions.
But you may ask” “Isn’t acupuncture just a pain management therapy?” Well, you’re right. At least partially. Take that word “just” out. Acupuncture IS great for pain relief. But does so much more in the right hands. It can work on the physical, mental and emotional levels.
Acupuncture increases the circulation of oxygen-rich, nutrient-rich blood to the brain, organs & glands, and muscles & joints in order to promote healing in the patient. Acupuncture modulates multiple physiological effects, mostly through the nervous system.
Acupuncture Treats More Than Just Pain
Acupuncture releases serotonin & dopamine. Why is this important? Dopamine and serotonin are your “happy hormones” due to the roles they play in regulating mood and emotion. That is how acupuncture can address conditions like anxiety, PTSD and insomnia. This means you could emerge from our treatment room purring like a kitten.
