When we become stuck in life, our body's energies also becomes stuck, creating internal blocks. These internal blocks make it hard to raise happiness or joy, no matter how hard we try.


Here’s how acupuncture may help: 

1. Regulation of neurotransmitters. Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood boosters. It also helps regulate the levels of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline, all of which play a role in anxiety and mental disorders.   

2. Stress reduction. Acupuncture can help activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which triggers the relaxation response and helps reduce stress levels. By calming the mind and the body, it can alleviate the symptoms associated with anxiety.

3. Hormone balance. Acupuncture has been found to regulate hormonal balance, including those related to stress and anxiety. It can help rebalance the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, which controls the body’s stress response, leading to a reduction in anxiety symptoms.

4. Improved sleep: Anxiety often disrupts sleep patterns, resulting in fatigue and worsening of symptoms. Acupuncture can help promote better sleep by addressing underlying imbalances that contribute to sleeping difficulties.


Here are some potential ways in which acupuncture may help individuals with autism:


1. Stress and Anxiety Reduction: Acupuncture may help address anxiety and stress, which are common among individuals with ASD. By promoting relaxation and restoring balance in the body, acupuncture may help alleviate behavioral symptoms associated with anxiety.


2. Sensory Regulation: Many individuals with autism have sensory sensitivities. Acupuncture may potentially help regulate sensory processing issues by stimulating specific points on the body and promoting a balanced sensory response.


3. Improving Sleep Patterns: Sleep disturbances are common in individuals with autism. Acupuncture may assist in improving sleep patterns and quality by promoting relaxation and balancing the body's energy.


4. Enhancing Emotional Well-being: Emotional regulation can be challenging for individuals with autism. Acupuncture may aid in balancing emotions by influencing the body's energy pathways and promoting a sense of calm.
