Workplace Wellness


Most adults spend the majority of their waking hours at work. Why not bring health and wellness services directly to them while at the same time increasing productivity and reducing burnout? More and more companies are providing wellness offerings to their employees as they see the benefits to their bottom line. Onsite acupuncture is a fantastic addition to your corporate wellness program. Acupuncture has been shown to dramatically reduce stress and anxiety, promote concentration, and boost immunity. And that’s only the beginning…

Acupuncture is one of the most effective treatments for stress. Acupuncture does not simply calm the mind and relax the muscles but brings lasting balance to various systems of the body. Stress is a major reason for health problems. The mental and physical strain and anxiety of a fast-paced work environment often leads to headaches, insomnia, muscle tension, anxiety disorders, palpitations, fatigue, emotional disturbances, weight gain, digestive disorders and countless other health and emotional issues. Acupuncture is especially effective at treating all of these problems because of its profound effect on regulating how the body responds to stress. It also has been shown to decrease the inflammatory response that is at the root of diseases like Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, fibromyalgia, and arthritis.

The Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine reports that health care expenditures are nearly 50% greater for workers who report high levels of stress. When your company can inexpensively provide stress-reduction moments during breaks for employees, their productivity increases, sick days decrease, and insurance costs decrease. Can your company afford to do without acupuncture as part of its wellness program?
