For some, this is the main reason for treatment, for others, it is a welcomed side effect. Acupuncture is very unique in its ability to calm the mind and anchor and settle the spirit. It is a common occurrence in the modern age for a client to comment as the needles are removed “Wow, I can’t remember when I felt so clear and relaxed”. Last time was probably their last treatment. Not only does that feeling stay with you, but just like in meditation, you can remember that feeling and pull yourself into that state in stressful situations in the future.
No pill, moment in the bedroom, or cocktail can equal that claim. I have one client who comes in for his weekly treatment to keep from killing his employees, and to stay on the top of his game. When he misses a week, they can tell.
