First, it is important to realize that we experience stress daily. Some stress is actually good. It keeps us on our toes and responsive, able to cope with any type of situation that is thrust before us.

Stress overload is another thing all together. Stress overload leads to health problems that escalate and damage the body. Therefore, it is important to find a way to deal with daily pressures that might lead to stress overload. In this article we take a look at three thought-provoking and natural ways to relieve stress. These concepts are healthy alternatives that remove stress without using drugs or chemicals.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that dates back over 2,000 years ago. This ancient traditional medicine was held in high regard in Eastern countries like China and Japan. Today, contemporary medicine has documented the vital role that acupuncture plays in overall health. Acupuncture is thought to stimulate the parts of the body that have a direct effect on internal organs. The practitioner places fine needles on points on the body. The needles fuel the body’s natural healing process, improve body functions, and boost the immune system. It is thought that most health concerns are caused by blockages of the energy flow in the body, or chi. The needles are inserted into the Meridians in the body. Placing needles in the Meridians points removes the blockages and restore health and balance.

Biofeedback
Biofeedback is a treatment thought to help people with various health complications. Biofeedback is used to treat high blood pressure, stress, tension, and more. Biofeedback uses a machine that is connected to the body. Electrical signals are sent that warn the individual that their muscles are tense. The electrical signals train the individual to pay attention to the stress signs in their own body. Thus, training them to relax the body or release tension in the muscles. This method has worked for millions to reduce tension headaches, stress, high blood pressure, chronic pain, and more.

Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is an ancient healing practice that has been around for thousands of years. Millions have obtained the benefits of this natural remedy. Indeed, the benefits are plentiful. Massage therapy reduces stress, alleviates pain, promotes good health, improves blood circulation, improves the nervous system, reduces headaches, backaches, muscle cramps, anxiety, muscle tension. Massage therapy works by placing pressure on specific points on the body. The massage therapist incorporates focused techniques to soothe the body and produce healing effects.

The natural techniques included are focused on providing real and natural solutions to improve health. They also help us to learn more about how our body functions. Remember to discuss these solutions with your health care provider for more information or before attempting the treatments.
