Stress is a condition that affects everyone, and it can even be beneficial. For example, stress in the face of danger can save a person’s life. However, severe or chronic stress is harmful.
Patients who experience chronic and/or severe stress are often tired or overwhelmed. They may also feel irritable or anxious for no reason. If these symptoms are left untreated, more serious complications can occur over time.
Patients experiencing ongoing stress may develop depression, social issues, and a propensity for drug abuse. It can also cause chest pain, weight loss or gain, trouble sleeping, muscle tension, headaches, and gastrointestinal upset.
Numo Acupuncture offers several therapies that help patients with stress. Some of these therapies include:
Patients who feel stressed should look for ways to reduce the number of stressors or responsibilities in their lives.
