Stress is one of the most common health issues in our society and can affect one’s health physically and mentally. Without proper stress management, a person may experience gastrointestinal problems, mental health issues, personality disorders, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, obesity, eating disorders, menstrual problems, sexual dysfunction, hair and skin problems, and much more. At Total Health we have numerous services that can ease stress such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic Care, and Cupping.

How Does Acupuncture and Cupping Help with Stress?

Acupuncture, a well-established form of traditional Chinese medicine, is known to have a positive effect on people who are suffering from stress. Our acupuncturists in Florham Park and Berkeley Heights use treatments that stimulate natural pain killers in the body by releasing endorphins and eliminating the blockage flow of energy created by stress. By improving the energy flow throughout the body, patients will experience a decrease in symptoms of stress. The body may also experience benefits such as improved self-esteem, mood, decision making, and focus, which all relieve stress.

Cupping is often times incorporated into acupuncture sessions and is a great way to promote deep relaxation and eliminate chronic stress throughout the body. Cupping, also a form of traditional eastern medicine, is proven to boost blood flow to local areas in the body helping tissues to heal.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help with Stress?

Chiropractic Care is another great service we offer to patients suffering with chronic stress. This treatment helps to relieve symptoms such as back and neck pain, muscle aches, fatigue, and headaches, that are commonly caused by stress. By adjusting the neck and spine, our chiropractors in Berkeley Heights and Florham Park can sooth the nervous system and alleviate frequent ailments related to stress. Total Health patients often experience a decrease in pain after the service, which immediately reduces tension in the body physically and mentally.

Total Health is more than happy to sit down with any individual and discuss their options. We hope to assist you with your stress reduction journey if you are located near Florham Park or Berkeley Heights. Please contact us if we can be of help to you.
