Acupuncture: How might acupuncture help HSC students?
Diet and exercise are the two most important areas to focus on. A good diet and the right amount of exercise (for you) will ensure good sleep, good absorption of nutrients resulting in good energy levels and ability to concentrate. However, we all respond different to additional work load and stress so should you feel additional support is needed acupuncture may help as follows
Stress - Acupuncture is probably best known for it's relaxation effects.
Sleep – it is well known and supported with many research studies that acupuncture may assist with a good night's sleep, be it trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep or just feeling like you had a good sleep.
Energy - Chinese Medicine practitioners identify “Patterns of Disharmony” and aim to resolve them, thereby supporting your innate healing ability to return you to wellness. This enables your energy levels to remain at a good level and your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to be balanced.
Digestive System – often our digestive system is the area where signs of overwork or stress are expressed. Acupuncture is well known for it's ability to assist with the function of the digestive system.
Immune system - Should a cold or flu occur during or around exams you may want to consider using acupuncture to clear the congestion in the head or phlegm from the lungs relieving head cold symptoms and associated headaches. This will assist the return of energy levels and allow you to continue your studies.
