Acupuncture for Stressby Thomas E. Turpen, MS, R.Ac. on 01/11/13
Stressed out? Acupuncture can bring those levels down a notch or two. Not only will it calm the mind, it will also calm the body. The relaxation brought about by acupuncture helps reduce levels of norepinephrine. Norepinephrine causes the adrenal glands to release cortisol, the prolonged release of which, can disrupt immune function.
