The holidays are around the corner. While this time of the year is consumed with pleasure and excitement, it’s also notoriously stressful. From work parties, cooking a festive dinner for your loved ones to buying presents, it’s a busy, headache-filled time.
The upcoming stress of the coming months, besides feeling drained, with it comes muscle soreness and ache/pains. Research from the American Psychological Association reveals that 44 % of females and 31 % of males report elevated stress during the holiday season.
From buying presents, work parties, cooking, and cleaning, there’s not a lot of time to catch up and relax. A relaxing day off is not in the cards. Fortunately, acupuncture works on several paths to lower stress.
Acupuncture is an example of a natural way to control stress. Acupuncture, safe and effective, remedy affords pure stress relief through scheduled appointments. Treatments can focus on stress and in many cases other health issues. Alleviating stress during the holidays will help you enjoy the holidays; spending this time with those you care about!
