OUR LATEST PRESS RELEASE:
Stressed Out By Black Friday? Come to Acupuncture Happy Hour
When asked to picture Black Friday, most people see crowds fighting over the “in” toy for the year, fighting in parking lots for space, even getting crushed by crowds eager for bargains. The stress is so great many avoid going out all together.
Acupuncture, specifically ear acupuncture is used to relieve stress and make it easier to face the frantic mall shoppers. Teresa Green, L. Ac. (Licensed Acupuncturist) will be offering an ”Acupuncture Happy Hour" Friday, November 25, from 8am-10am.
The treatment aims to relieve stress for those braving crowded malls on Black Friday. Treatments last about 20 minutes, and are by appointment.
Acupuncturists around the country use "Happy Hours" to offer a quick stress relief treatment designed to treat mild symptoms instead of complex health problems. The Happy Hours usually occur weekly, and offer stressed out business people and shoppers a way to relax and quickly get the benefits of acupuncture.
Green will begin offering weekly Happy Hours on Tuesday evenings beginning in December.
Patients are seated together in a large room. Tiny, sterile, disposable needles are placed on strategic points on the ears. Patients may sit, read a relaxing book, or quietly converse with each other during the treatment. They should avoid stressful activities during the treatment.
The United States military uses auricular (or ear) acupuncture to treat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and pain. Addiction centers and smoking cessation clinics also use the quick, minimally invasive treatments as part of addiction therapy because it helps clients deal with the stress of withdrawals and manage cravings.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to treat a myriad of health problems, including pain, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, and any problem aggravated by stress.
Teresa Green has been a Licensed Acupuncturist for 7 years, and specializes in emotional and digestive disorders, chronic pain and immune system disorders. Her office is located at 9535 Kings Charter Drive in Ashland Virginia. For more information, call Teresa at (804) 683-2979, or visit www.greenacuclinic.com.
