As I have mentioned before I am a pretty anxious person and have been dealing with it more intensely in the past several years.
I wanted to to share tonight about how I have been handling it as of late… acupuncture.
Acupuncture is sort of a crazy thing because you don’t really know how it works or why but it does- and for stress/anxiety it has helped me tremendously.
Right now you could say I am having a ’20 something life crisis’ and going through alot of work related transition. I’ve also been informed of something called ‘Saturn’s Return’ to either add to the list or help explain all of is chaos. This lack of stability normally would be grounds for me to…. break now utterly and completely with stress, worry and anxiety. But I’m not. I would attribute that at least mostly to acupuncture.
When I go to acupuncture it feels like my body is able to release alot of negative ‘static’. That might sound odd but it’s the best way I can explain it. It feels like all the anxiety is static and acupuncture just is a way that lets it all go. It’s pretty amazing actually.
I think more realistically it helps re-set my para synthetic system to help my body not be in flight for flight mode all the time.
Anyway, dealing with anxiety is trivial to our health. Since I have been able to actually get ride of some of mine I’ve found the importance of doing so- I can really feel such a difference in my physical and mental state when I am able to properly get rid of my anxiety. Because of this I wanted to share my experience with you and tell you that my whole life up to this point I NEVER thought I would be able to even do acupuncture because I have a very real fear of needles. BUT I can do it and literally if I can do it then really anyone can. The worst of is feel sorta like a sting for like 2 seconds and then that pain is gone but for the most part the needles don’t create any pain, it’s just certain spots where that sting like pain can happen.
So if you are able go check out acupuncture and if you live in Santa Fe and need a recommendation let me know!
P.S. right now my anxiety free plan includes acupuncture, cat and dog therapy
