ANXIETY & STRESS BUSTING
ANXIETY is one of the symptoms I regularly treat in my acupuncture and TCM practice. It’s a very hard thing to avoid and usually affects people at some time in their lives. What anxiety and stress is for one person, isn’t necessarily the same for another. It can create a number of side effects, the principal ones being lack of, or poor quality sleep, depression, mood swings and stomach problems. Sometimes even panic attacks. But stress and anxiety don’t have to be a way of life. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the emotions play a very important part in the treatment of a patient. We talk about The Five Spirits as the Taoist version of the Hindu Chakra system. The Five Spirits are a map of the human psyche and at the deepest level go beyond the merely physical level to create the perfect balance. When treating a patient in my acupuncture clinic I look at how to support and balance the emotions. How to nurture at the deepest level, and help you to change your life for the better. Beginning with acupuncture and moving on to mindful meditation techniques and Qi Gong. Can life be better? Yes it can and healthier too.
