Are you sweating just reading these? It’s because they are all examples of stressors that we deal with on a daily basis. And this list doesn’t even include major stressors like getting married, moving, experiencing a natural disaster or something that’s all too familiar at the moment, living through a pandemic. 

It’s no secret that people are experiencing stress and anxiety at an all time high due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. These increased levels of anxiety affect your mental health, emotional coping abilities and take a toll on your physical body. Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Furthermore, stress and anxiety can have negative effects on your mood and behavior; including angry outbursts, lack of motivation, feeling overwhelmed, social withdrawal, drug or alcohol abuse and overeating or undereating. 

Fortunately there are numerous ways that you can manage stress and more importantly, your reaction to life’s stressors. The first being meditation. Our brain is meant to keep us alive. And that means scanning the future to look for threats and comparing it to what happened in the past to make sure we’re safe. Your mind may never stop thinking during meditation but you’ll be able to see the difference between thinking and being lost in your thoughts. There’s also exercise. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. And talk therapy. This doesn’t always have to be done with a licensed counselor, although we like to think that’s the probably the most fruitful conversation you will have. Just make sure you are sharing with someone you trust. Sometimes simply sharing the source of your stress, and expressing your concerns can help unload your burden.

Our favorite way to manage stress?

Acupuncture of course. “Animal and human studies suggest that the beneficial effects of acupuncture on health, including mental and emotional functioning, are related to different mechanisms of action.” says Psychology Today. These include changes in neurotransmitters involved in emotional regulation such as serotonin, modulation of the autonomic nervous system, and changes in immune function. 

Acupuncture will create balance in the nervous system, re energize the body while relaxing and calming the mind. All of this without recreational substances or pharmaceuticals. 

And for those of you who are afraid of needles…  the process is relatively painless, a majority of the needles won’t be felt at all, and if you feel one it will be similar to that one uncomfortable eyebrow tweeze. 

Essentially, if you can tweeze your eyebrows, you can get acupuncture. 

And we promise, your mind, body and spirit will thank you!

Central New Jersey Acupuncture & Wellness Clinic will not be treating any known, or suspected, cases of Covid-19 in the office.  If you are sick, please wait for 2 weeks until you are symptom free before making an appointment.

If you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 in the past 14 days, we will not be able to accept you as a patient at this time. If you have traveled outside of the US in the past 30 days we will not be able to accept you as a patient at this time.

Following are our new procedures:

  1. You will be pre-screened via phone prior to your appointment. 

  2. When you arrive at the office, please wait in your car and call the office. You will be told when it is safe to come in.

  3. Upon entering the office, you will be required to hand sanitize. We will do a quick temperature check, if you are over 100.4F, you will be asked to leave and call your doctor. Temperature checks will be done at each visit.

  4. All patients are required to wear a face covering of some kind the entire time you are in the office, for the duration of the treatment. We have masks available if you need one.

  5. You will be taken to the treatment room directly. No waiting in the waiting room.

  6. Follow up appointments can be scheduled prior to leaving the office.   You may also email info@cNJacu.com to set up your next appointment


  1. Tables are wiped down between treatments.

  2. High tough surfaces- door handles, light switches, call buttons, etc will be sanitized between patients

  3. Providers will wear masks and gloves while cleaning

  4. Alcohol based hand sanitizers are available in all rooms.

What we need from you:

  1. Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment.

  2. Please DO NOT bring unnecessary items into the office with you, i.e., purses, bags, water bottles, iPads, etc..  The fewer items you have the less likely we will have any issues with contamination.

  3. Please DO NOT come to your appointment if you have, or have had, any cold or flu symptoms in the past 14 days, have traveled recently, or have any of the symptoms that are associated with Covid-19.   This applies if you have a household member with any symptoms.  We know that there are many silent carriers, but our goal is to minimize any exposure of known causes. Instead, call us to reschedule.

If you are uncomfortable coming to the office for any reason, we understand. 

If any of us tests positive for Covid-19, the office will be closed for 14 days, disinfected, and all patients who have been in 14 days prior will be notified.
