In modern world as we become busier, our stress increases depleting our time to relax. Our bodies have the ability to cope and recover from stress however if the stress persists for a long period of time and becomes too much, it can deplete the adrenal glands and the body’s intrinsic ability to rebalance. Stressed people often feel fatigued, experience poor concentration, bad memory, depression, frequent colds, weight gain including craving for sweets and feeling bloated after eating. They may also experience difficulty getting up in the morning and become reliant on coffee or other stimulants due to insomnia or sleeping problems. This may also result in abnormal menstruation and increased PMS for many women.
Stressors can be physical or emotional events which disrupt our energy circulation, harm the balance of internal organs and weaken the immune system. This in turn may result in more than just physical illness including chronic diseases and repeated infections. Stress may result in unhappy relationships, loss of job, financial insecurity and lack of emotional support which also influences our health in the long run. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are a safe and effective way to bring you back to emotional, mental and physical balance and recover from stress disturbances. In my clinic, I use gentle therapies like Chinese herbs, Acupuncture, Cupping and Massage as well as vitamins and supplements, nutritional advices and life style changes to help my patients recover their ability to handle stress. They normally feel very relaxed, improve their eating habits and food digestion, improved sleep as well as increased energy. Many experience big improvements within their first few weekly treatments.
