Acupuncture in New York City
We all know working and living in NYC can be stressful – from the crowds and traffic to the unique smells and sounds of a city filled with life. It’s a beautiful thing to see when the city is buzzing with energy and you’re buzzing right along with it. It feels good. But it’s hard to reach this state when you’re mentally exhausted from a demanding job, family, and friends.
It’s difficult to see the bright side of your days when you’re physically tired from a lack of sleep and experiencing nagging shoulder and neck pain from hours spent at your desk and on your phone. The routines of life can become burdensome and it’s in all of our best interests to keep a watchful eye on how stress and physical fatigue affect our minds and bodies. Acupuncture therapy is a common and effective means of combating city-living induced stress and physical strain and if you’re experiencing things such as an inability to sleep or shoulder and neck pain, an acupuncture therapy schedule of a few quick trips a month to your local acupuncture clinic could get you back to feeling like your former, more energetic, more alert, more relaxed self.

The following are some common sources of city-induced stress or physical strain and fatigue that are treatable with acupuncture therapy:
Acupuncture for Stress from Work
Whether it’s from the long hours on the job, the extra work that’s expected from you or simply just the nature of your career – work is a common source of stress. The effects of working stick with you even after you leave the job site or office, they follow you home in the form of negative thoughts and energy, or even a sore shoulder or knee. Whatever your form of work stress, it has a negative impact on your mind and body, one that can manifest itself in the form of physical pain or a general mental feeling of dullness. It’s important to find a way to maintain a balance, one that allows the natural and fluid flow of energy through your body—helping you clear your mind and settle your body.

Pain and Strain from Keyboards and Screens
This is a relatively new phenomenon but the number of patients experiencing shoulder, wrist, and neck pain from the constant use of keyboards, monitors, tablets, and smartphones is growing! It’s not too surprising, considering how much these devices are baked into our everyday lives. But for some, the daily use of these devices has caused them to develop poor posture that contributes to neck and shoulder tightness and strain. However, the impact doesn’t end there, the constant use of keyboards, whether digital or physical, is straining wrists as well as hand muscles and tendons.
Noise and Distraction While on the Move
This is a simple one—the city, and living here, is certainly loud and filled with distractions. So much activity, that seemingly never ends or settles, can simultaneously keep you on edge, and wear down even your most hardened defenses. It’s can be a loud and crazy world, but to live in it, you’ve got find some peace and quiet that’s just for you.
