How Acupuncture & Reflexology Can Help Decrease Anxiety & Stress
Here’s how you treat anxiety and stress with the help of acupuncture.
There are times in life when you feel like your mind is all over the place and your life’s tempo is more than you can handle. This is a result of our sympathetic nervous system, which is known for ‘fight or flight’. When this is on, our blood pressure goes up, as do the body’s stress hormones.
Sophie utilizes various treatments, including stress acupuncture, to help your body activate its own healing and recovery to regulate your body’s chemical balance. During stress acupuncture, endorphins are released in the brain, which are natural painkillers. Acupuncture naturally slows down your body’s production of stress hormones and increases blood flow to your brain by letting the parasympathetic nervous system take over. This reduces stress and anxiety.
If you’re using conventional therapy and/or medication, acupuncture can supplement this treatment. This can be helpful if you wish to limit the use of medications.
Sophie’s treatment can help you switch back to your parasympathetic mode through the use of reflexology. Additionally, she integrates acupuncture to rebalance the electric balance in your brain and your hormones. Each treatment is tailored to your personal needs.

Sophie uses both reflexology and acupuncture during each weekly appointment. At the end of the session, you will feel refreshed, relaxed and have a renewed sense of well-being. In many cases, symptoms are diminished the following day after treatment.
