If you’re looking for stress relief in Manhattan, you’ve come to the right place! Under normal conditions, people can experience periods of stress or go through a series of stressful events and then recover, moving on with their lives. But if the stress that you experience day in and day out while working, going to school or living goes on constantly without relief or is too extreme, it can take a toll on your body.
If this will be your first time experiencing acupuncture, you can expect to begin your appointment by sitting down and discussing your medical history and lifestyle during a consultation. Acupuncture helps eliminate stress by bringing your body back into balance. Developed in China more than 3,000 years ago, acupuncture is a time-tested method to restore wellness to the body, relieve stress and boost the immune system. When stress builds up, people often find their back, neck or shoulders becoming painful. Unmanaged stress can also interfere with sleep and digestion and is implicated in raising blood pressure.
During treatment with our acupuncturist in New York, extremely fine needles will be inserted into your skin, targeting the exact points that require stimulation to promote movement of energy. The Chinese refer to this energy as Qi (pronounced: chee), which flows through a network of meridians in the body. Meridians can be compared to pathways, and each major bodily organ has its own meridian. By unblocking meridians acupuncture restores health, decreases stress and relieves associated anxiety.
Manhattan Acupuncture Clinic is led by Alida P. van Heerden, L.Ac. Alida is a Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist and Herbalist as well as being licensed by the State of New York. Alida became an acupuncturist so she could help others, after having a positive experience with acupuncture herself.
She understands the pressures of stress that can build up for people in New York. With years of experience helping people relieve stress, Alida will develop a customized treatment program just for you.
Not only will acupuncture help you with stress relief, it can promote a greater quality of life. This is because acupuncture improves how the immune system works, which is essential for keeping illnesses from recurring. The result is a healthier body with less stress and anxiety.
