If you’re struggling to cope, you’re not alone.

Chronic stress has become an all-too-familiar part of modern life. Mobile technology, the culture of 24/7 work availability, and competing time demands can inappropriately trigger our hardwired physical fight-or-flight responses and contribute to serious health conditions. If stress has become disruptive to your life and relationships, or you’re experiencing sustained anxiety, depression or emotional distress, please reach out. We have many safe, effective ways to help.

Chronic stress, depression, anxiety and other emotional issues are not only challenging, but they can also increase your risk of developing (or exacerbating) conditions including diabetes, insomnia, addiction, high blood pressure, heart disease, gastrointestinal problems, adrenal dysregulation, and more.

Our experienced, compassionate providers offer low-risk, high-benefit treatments and therapies that can have a dramatic effect on your condition, while enhancing your overall health. These are truly first-line therapies that promote lasting, measurable improvement. We empower you to achieve greater health and happiness.

How acupuncture can help.

Acupuncture is a highly effective way to encourage relaxation and help people learn how their bodies react to acute and chronic stressors. Targeting key pathways and acupuncture points can prompt the nervous system to release neurotransmitters that “calm the nerves,” reducing anxiety, boosting energy and promoting a sense of happiness.

Beyond acupuncture, we specialize in treatments that can help you to retrain your physical stress responses, experience a deeper sense of relaxation, and feel better overall. Your provider may recommend a combination of herbal medicine, biofeedback techniques, nutritional changes, functional medicine, essential oils, and more. If you are taking medication or working with a physician or therapist, our treatments can safely augment these therapies and enhance your care.
