Exam time is fast approaching and for many students this is one of the most worrying times of the year. Exam anxiety can result in stress and negatively affect test performance and concentration.
Acupuncture has long been used as a treatment for anxiety and stress. Care Cure Clinics uses acupuncture as a treatment for exam preparation to improve memory, calm the mind, improve concentration, alleviate worry, improve sleep, and support digestion.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting small, painless, disposable needles into acupoints, which are located on channels of energy running through the body.
The two main points used to help with exam anxiety are the concentration point located on the back of the neck and the calming (baihui ) point on the top of the head.
Acupuncture uses these points and others to rebalance both the body and the mind and eliminate the root cause of the problem. When students receive acupuncture, they generally experience a reduction in stress, anxiety, and insomnia as well as an improvement in energy and wellbeing. Best of all there are no side effects from acupuncture treatments.
A free, no obligation, consultation is available in all clinics. Call 091 539996/086 0695397 for details. Clinics are located in Galway city, Loughrea, and Tuam.
For all students who would like to experience some stress relief, Care Cure offers acupuncture treatments at the reduced price of €40 instead of €50. See www.carecure.ie or find Care Cure Clinics Ireland on Facebook.
