SAD or Stressed during this time of the year? Acupuncture can help you thrive, instead of merely survive, during the fall and winter here in the Pacific Northwest!
Although stress and SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) are a found all around the world, we in the PacNW seem to be particularly hit hard when the seasons change, the loss of daylight becomes apparent, and the busyness of the holiday season looms ahead. The good news is Acupuncture is a very effective, drug-free therapy choice that can help you whether you suffer year round, seasonally, or just occasionally from these or other issues.
Managing severe anxiety or depression generally includes talk therapy, which might not provide results for months, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Beyond that, it can require anxiety medication, which can have serious side effects of their own.
As opposed to counseling, people treated with acupuncture often see results after one session, and the results improve with continued treatment. Depending on where the needles are placed, acupuncture can cause the nervous system to produce painkilling chemicals, jump-start the body’s natural ability to heal itself, or stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions, including anxiety and depression.
So whether you're new to the region, or are a PacNW native, acupuncture can help you with seasonal or chronic mental and physical health issues in a natural, pain-free way. Call Tanasse Chiropractic today to start feeling better and enjoying all the beauty that surrounds us!
