Acupuncture And You
Stress is amongst the most common health issues today. Intense stress lasts longer and influences the physical and emotional health of a person. It can be harmful and can damage organs and weaken the immune system.
At True Life Wellness and Physiotherapy, we offer Acupuncture to relieve Stress. It is a natural and alternative form of healing that manages Anxiety and Stress, which has been implemented for thousands of years. Acupuncture has an immediate effect on the nervous system, helping with symptoms of depression and restores a calm state of mind. It is safe, effective and drug-free!
When the energy in our body fails to flow smoothly, anxiety and stress can result. Acupuncture helps with anxiety and stress by restoring the proper flow of this energy. Acupuncture also helps reduce stress by keeping the heart rate normal. When the body is stressed, the heart tends to pump faster and in some cases, a person may even develop palpitations. Panic attacks, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, difficulty falling asleep and other symptoms associated with anxiety and stress can be relieved with Acupuncture.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been used for over 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body. Disruptions of this flow cause of disease.
By stimulating certain points along the body, Acupuncture can release blocked qi (energy) in the body and stimulate function, resulting in the body’s natural healing response.
More Than Just Pain!
Many people assume that Acupuncture is used to help with only pain. While pain is definitely a condition that can be alleviated with Acupuncture, there are many other conditions that Acupuncture can be used for.
Since Acupuncture treats all forms of bodily imbalances, it can help even treat anxiety and sleep issues.

Acupuncture and Menstrual Pain
Did you know that Acupuncture has much wider applications, especially for women’s health?
Acupuncture brings increased blood flow and oxygenation to the pelvic area, thereby alleviating pain.
Heavy menstrual bleeding
Acupuncture treatments may be effective in making heavy periods lighter. This can be accompanied by heavy cramping as well, so acupuncture may help with both!
Irregular or absent menstruation
Acupuncture can restore balance in the body, causing a return of periods.
Personalized treatment plans that incorporate both acupuncture and lifestyle adjustments help our patients see their cycles normalize, which is especially important for women who wish to become pregnant.
On Thursday, June 18th our North York clinic will be treating patients specifically with menstrual issue.
