Symptoms of fatigue can include:

  • weakness
  • lethargy
  • no energy
  • difficulty focusing or concentrating
  • unable to perform or start tasks usually completed with ease
  • no motivation
  • confusion or fogginess

Fatigue can strike at any time, without warning and for any number of reasons.  It is not uncommon for people suffering from fatigue to start the day that way – even after a full night’s sleep.  As a matter of fact, many sufferers often start their day the opposite of refreshed.  They get out of bed already fatigued, tired, weak and weary.

There is good news!  Acupuncture and other holistic methodologies may be help to help you begin to WIN the battle against fatigue!  Acupuncture sessions can help you begin to feel better, become more energized, focused and alert.


Often times our bodies become out of balance due to daily demands, stress, illness, chemicals and medications.  Acupuncture works to bring the body back in to balance.

Acupuncture is a side effect-free and extremely safe way to combat fatigue…

Acupuncture uses very thin needles to stimulate meridians or acupuncture points located throughout the body.  These needles are extremely thin and are likened to a strand of hair or even a cat’s whisker.  Sometimes the acupuncture points or meridians located in our body become clogged, not allowing for proper energy flow or Qi to travel through the body as it needs to.  The acupuncture needles are used to stimulate our meridians and Qi; getting it to move and flow properly.  Once this energy or Qi is no longer clogged or blocked, the body begins to become more in balance.  Once balance is restored, your body can begin to feel better, healthier and able to function better.
