Research shows that Traditional Chinese Medicine (AKA acu + herbs) is a super effective way to reduce stress as well as ease symptoms of anxiety, depression, burnout + PTSD

According to the American Institute of Stress, the top health crisis in America is (nervous drum roll)... stress! A majority of Americans just like you live under constant stress that not only chips away at their mental well-being, but also their physical health.

Recent studies found that two-thirds of all U.S. full-time workers experience burnout, while anxiety disorders affect 19% of the adult population (or 40M people, the majority female). Less than half seek treatment. And even when they do, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America reminds us that "many people with anxiety have a co-occurring disorder or physical illness, which can make their symptoms worse and recovery more difficult. It's essential to be treated for both disorders."

The WTHN Method is a holistic treatment that combines acu + Chinese herbs to treat stress + anxiety. Our licensed acupuncturists create a personalized treatment plan, which may include acu treatments + herb blends to get to the root cause and address all symptoms - physical + emotional.

HOW IT WORKS

Acu stabilizes our two nervous systems - the sympathetic + parasympathetic - to promote a feeling of well-being + balance. We spend so much of our day racing to work or getting kids to school, which engages our "fight or flight" aka sympathetic nervous system. Acu helps us relax and shift into our parasympathetic nervous system.

This shift actually changes our neurochemistry, increasing "happy" hormones like serotonin + epinephrine and decreasing our main "stress" hormone, cortisol.

In addition to serotonin, acu increases other "happy" hormones like dopamine + norepinephrine for a feeling of well-being + overall happiness.

By the way, you'll also leave your next acu-session feeling not only happy, but also totally relaxed, thanks to an increase in inhibitory amino acids like GABA. It's like instant, effortless meditation.
