Acupuncture helps prevent illness by reducing stress and strengthening the body’s natural healing and immune system, making it ready to fight off the bacteria and viruses that we encounter daily, especially in a crowded city like New York. General-wellness programs address everything from allergies to autoimmune disorders and can make a huge difference in how you feel. Prolonged stress will wear down the immune system’s ability to respond to threats and balance itself.
General wellness acupuncture for stress reduction and strong immunity
Stress is a major factor in depressing the immune system, leading to illness. When stressed, the body releases stress hormones that stimulate the “fight or flight” response and suppresses the “rest and digest” response which is how the body rejuvenates and heals.
The immune system is like anti-virus software in our body, constantly running in the background. We tend to ignore the warning messages that our immune system sends us, leading to loss of balance and illness. Regular treatments will ensure that your “warning system” is functioning optimally, keeping you from getting sick.
