Acupuncture Can Relieve Your Stress

39: How Acupuncture Can Relieve Your Stress, Balance Your Hormones and More with Sara Poldmae

Have you ever done acupuncture before?


Sara Poldmae, a dear friend and colleague of mine, is joining me on the show to talk about the benefits of acupuncture, what it can do for you, and the many conditions that acupuncture can help with.


Dr. Sara Poldmae is a Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist, and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner. She has been practicing holistic health care since 1998. Dr. Sara opened Meadow Hill Wellness, in Annapolis in 2005, with the goal of integrating traditional and holistic care in order to effectively maintain her patients’ lifelong health.


We cover the many benefits of Chinese medicine, how acupuncture can lessen your stress and balance your hormones, and so much more.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • The biggest benefit of acupuncture
  • An overview of Chinese medicine
  • What cupping is and how it helps your muscles
  • How acupuncture can help decrease anxiety
  • How some people react to acupuncture
  • Acupuncture effect on the nervous system
  • Where you can find an acupuncturist


I think it’s really cool that acupuncture is becoming more widely accepted as a wonderful adjunct therapy to lots of Western medicine treatments, so if you have insurance, you should call to see if acupuncture is covered under your plan!


Make sure that you feel comfortable with the acupuncturist that you do choose because if you are not, you will miss out on many of the stress-reducing benefits of it!


Connect with Sara if you are interested in acupuncture and are local, or check out which acupuncturists are in your area!


Whether you struggle with migraines, infertility, stress, pain, inflammation, or one of the other many issues we discussed in this episode, I highly recommend that you try it out!
