People often think that workplace stress refers to the psychological stress of competing at work.
While it is true, workplace stress is not limited to psychological issues. It also refers to the physical strain your body suffers due to the unhealthy environment and improper seating arrangements.
Out of all workplace stresses, American adults are most stressed by workload. This is followed by what we call ‘people issues’ and judgmental behaviors of others regarding their personal lives.
People often try to relate workplace stress to particular types of jobs and/or professions. The truth however is that every employee feels at least some form of stress. So what can we do to relieve this problem which is slowly becoming a global issue?
Acupuncture and workplace stress
Almost 77% Americans experience physical symptoms of stress, the primary reason being job pressures. Stress, whether physical or emotional, is the most common reason people seek acupuncture treatment. But how does acupuncture help relieve stress? There are a number of ways in which this happens:
Men and women slouching over computers and typing fervently on the keyboards with their backs in a very poorly curved posture, is perhaps the most common scene at every workplace.
This is what results in pain in a number of our body’s muscles and joints. Mostly shoulders, back, neck and legs are affected by this improper posture.
Acupuncture helps relax your muscles and relieve your joint pain. This allows a person to have a peaceful sleep during the night and wake up full of energy. It also increases flexibility and endurance. The greatest part being it does all of this without integrating medicine!
Headache relief and eye strain solution
Computers do more harm to your body than just destroying your posture. That bright screen can also cause headaches and eye strains. Acupuncture is shown to reduce migraines and other headache types.
On the other hand, eye strains are connected with tension in the neck region. Treatment for neck stress can reduce eye strain.
Do you perform certain tasks that result in small, but repetitive injuries, resulting in pain? Acupuncture can help you overcome this pain by relaxing your muscles. As the treatment also increases flexibility in your body, it prevents the pain from reoccurring and becoming chronic.
