Why ear acupuncture?

Stress, anxiety, hectic and fast-paced living often creates the need to self-medicate in order to feel calm, relaxed and in control of a seemingly out of control life. The constant need to soothe the mind can lead to over indulging and the chronic use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, food, sex, television, video games and more. There are ways to soothe the mind and reduce feelings of stress without turning to self medication, or prescription medication.  Ear acupuncture is a proven method for various conditions, including the prevention of addictions and recovery from addictions. For more information about how ear acupuncture can work for you, contact Mateo at 541-5660.
