How It Works
Stress has external and internal triggers. External triggers include work or family conflict, health issues, long commutes, and taxing situations. Internal triggers involve self pressure, self judgement, pushing too hard, or burning the candle at both ends. Regardless of the source, something bad happens inside our bodies when we’re exposed to stress.
To understand how the Raleigh Acupuncture stress relief treatment works, we need to talk about “Qi” (pronounced Chi). Qi is energy that flows through our bodies. You can’t see it, touch it or measure it. But you sure can feel it.
Qi is like an electric pulse moving through our bodies, nourishing the organs, moving the blood, converting food into energy. Qi is a very big deal in Chinese medicine. All disease involves some form of qi dysfunction. And stress is no exception.
Why Stress Is Bad For Our Health
Stress makes qi stuck. It causes this most important life force to become sluggish, constraining its proper circulation. As a result, Qi can’t do its job.
To make matters worse, qi stagnation lodges in weak areas of our body, areas that have been injured in the past. So someone with chronic neck pain, for example, will have worse neck pain when they are stressed because their neck is weak.
On an emotional level, qi stagnation causes the feeling of STRESS. It triggers restlessness, making you feel like a caged lion. Or you may feel stuck, at a loss how to resolve a frustrating situation. Alternately you can feel unmotivated, not willing to do what’s necessary to move forward. Stress comes in many flavors, none of them good.
How Acupuncture Helps
So how does acupuncture help relieve stress? Quite simply, there are specific acupuncture points on the body that improve qi circulation. A series of acupuncture treatments will literally get your qi flowing better and keep it flowing better.
When stress hits, your body can keep the qi flowing despite the natural inclination to stagnate. If you’re already stressed, acupuncture kick starts the qi flow, causing a reduction in the emotional feeling of stress and the physical feeling of pain triggered by stress.
Once the body has good qi flow, not only will you feel less stress, you will stay healthier. Stress reduces our immune system. Less stress means stronger immune function. If you want to be that happy person at work who never gets sick, a good place to start is with strong qi circulation.

What our Clients are Saying
I was feeling depressed and stressed because I didn’t like my job and didn’t know what to do with my life. I started taking Lexipro but it really affected my libido so I stopped taking it. I tried acupuncture because my husband said it helped him when he was depressed years earlier (before he met me!) I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and started treatments. They were really knowledgeable about Chinese medicine and explained how the body gets stuck in depression, and how the acupuncture gets the body unstuck. They really listened to me and helped me figure stuff out. I started feeling less depressed. Then I actually started getting more clear about what I wanted to do with my life career-wise. I decided to go back to school and now I’m almost done with my degree. I haven’t felt depressed at all since I was treated and I’m really excited about my life. I’m very grateful to them for being such great healers and such a great support to me when I really needed it.
Thank you for your gentle healing spirit. May God bless you as you help others in the healing methods of acupuncture.. My sessions for stress relief were very helpful. In gratitude.
I just started acupuncture and I can really see the benefits. I’ve done massages and all the Western style treatments but this is amazing! It relaxes me in ways I didn’t know could happen and I feel immediate results. I would recommend acupuncture as a treatment. The doctor was great in my initial meeting more thorough than my regular doctor. Highly recommend this!
