What is tension triangle? How stress affects you? Acupuncture can help reduce stress and tension.
Muscle tension slows blood flow to the skin and muscles. Normally, the blood washes away the metabolic products which is toxic to the cells. But if the muscle stays tense, it becomes oxygen-starved and metabolites, say lactic acid, build up. The pain receptors in the muscles are sensitive both to shortening of the fibers and to a buildup of metabolites. When these receptors detect such conditions, they send a message of pain to the brain.
Immediate relief for a tense muscle comes from lengthening its fibers and getting the blood flowing to clear out the metabolites. Acupuncture is the best way to relax the muscles, release the muscle tension and restore blood flow.
