Buying a new home or putting your house on the market can be an exciting process, but it can also cause an unhealthy level of stress and anxiety. Acupuncture is a natural way to treat the symptoms associated with stress, it works faster than therapy, and is a drug free solution. Here are five ways acupuncture can help reduce stress when home buying or selling:
1. Improves Mood
There are many highs and lows when buying or selling a house, especially when it comes to contract negotiations, which can make your mood continually fluctuate. Acupuncture is known to improve your mood by inducing the release of serotonin and endorphins in the brain which help to regulate your state of mind.
2. Sick Less Often
Acupuncture needles are seen by the body as a foreign object which automatically causes the body to produce an immune response. This immune response increases the production of white blood cells which help to fight infections and diseases. No one wants to be sick when looking at homes, so acupuncture is a great preventative measure to avoid sickness.
3. Better Sleep
The home buying and selling process can make you have a lot on your mind which can make sleeping difficult. Acupuncture is known to help patients fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, improve overall sleep quality, and it increases melatonin levels.
4. Increased Energy
Directly after an acupuncture treatment, one might feel dazed & relaxed, but in the hours or days afterward the effect is usually increased energy and mental clarity. You will feel more motivated to tackle items that have been on your to-do list and you will be able to make decisions faster.
5. Reduces Inflammation & Lowers Blood Pressure
Stress can elevate blood pressure and inflammatory responses, which can cause depression, fatigue and social withdrawal. Acupuncture inhibits inflammation in specific parts of the brain which indirectly reduces stress hormones. It also combats it by stimulating the sensory neurons in the muscles. This stimulation releases endogenous opioids, which have an effect on the heart according to the University of California Los Angeles Department of Medicine.
