Stress is increasingly one of the major challenges to well being experienced in modern society – it’s also one of the things for which patients frequently seek out acupuncture treatment.
And even amongst those patients who are not specifically looking for stress relief, most will comment on how very relaxed they feel after their acupuncture treatment.
This talk will look at the mechanisms of stress, how they have evolved, how they are mediated, and what effect they may have on fertility.
We will examine all the possible internal mechanisms for the profound effect acupuncture has on the stress response. And discuss the best ways that we can use these in clinic.
