Acupuncture for stress
A modern use for acupuncture is the treatment of stress. The reason I say modern uses is because acupuncture wasn’t so commonly used for stress in the past. Acupuncture has always been a medical model for the treatment of acute infections, viral disorders, various chronic and acute illnesses, and injuries. Whenever acupuncture was used for chronic disorders it was always in conjunction with herbal therapy, dietary changes, and lifestyle alterations. Today, we use it for all the above as well as stress management which brings acupuncture into the field of preventative medicine.
