Acupuncture treatment for stress and anxiety on the Gold Coast

Stress and anxiety are similar in how they affect you.

Do you experience disturbed sleep, difficulty concentrating, tiredness, muscle tension, irritability, chest tightness, uncomfortable awareness of your own heartbeat (palpitations) or the sensation of a lump in your throat or churning in your stomach?

If you have some or all of these symptoms and they are negatively affecting your life, you should think about acupuncture.

Acupuncture treatment not only helps reduce anxiety (stress) it does so with less side effects than other treatments.

And if you find the idea of needles stressful, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that our typical treatments only require 1-3 very fine needles that are practically painless.
