By: | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 0 | November 7th, 2016


Break ups, whether you are the one that made the decision or not, are devastating. While you are heartbroken making it hard to eat or even get out of bed, the world around you goes on and expects you to go on too.

It is important to surrounding yourself by people who love and support you, take the time you need to heal, and possibly see a therapist to help you through this tough time, but have you ever considered using acupuncture to get over the hump?

How can acupuncture help?

“We know that acupuncture activates our parasympathetic nervous system (the part of our nervous system responsible for feeling relaxed) and that it’s been shown to increase those “feel-good” hormones called endorphins, which are known to improve mood and decrease perception of pain.” Posted by Dr. Stephanie Cordes, ND.

The physical reaction to break ups

The feeling of loss and grief creates a large stress response in the body along with the typical change in behavior that occurs. This stress response is carried out by hormones that can decrease heart rate and blood pressure sharply, and also have an effect on the chemicals that regulate your brain function including your emotions, thoughts, and perception!

What people are saying about us

“I just started to cry. Then I cried really hard for 2 minutes…but then it was done and I felt like I finally got the release I was looking for”

“I feel really comfortable talking before my sessions about how I’m feeling. I know she’s not a therapist, but I feel like she wants me to get better and it’s nice to feel supported”
