"Many studies have shown acupuncture can reduce stress."
Many studies have shown acupuncture can reduce stress, so scientists are exploring which biological mechanisms are stimulated by Chinese Medicine and cause this reaction in the body. The feeling of stress in our bodies has a lot to do with the relationship between the hypothalamus of the brain, the pituitary gland and the adrenal glands. Each of those areas releases different hormones that interact and create the stress-response in our bodies.
In 2013, a study published by the Journal of Endocrinology speaking of changes in stressful situations had significantly decreased after the treatment of microcurrent point stimulation. This biological response suggests Chinese Medicine blocks the chronic stress-induced elevation of these hormones and might explain how Chinese Medicine works to reduce stress in the body.

Chinese Medicine acts like physical therapy for the nervous system. The tiny needles retrain the nervous system and the brain, balancing cortisol levels and retraining the nervous system to only release cortisol in true “flight or fight” scenarios rather than maintaining chronic high levels of cortisol that are seen in patients with anxiety and stress.
