Stress Management and Emotional Health
Stress can show up in various ways such as:
These symptoms may be caused by physical as well as functional issues (hormonal imbalances) or/and stress, diet and lifestyle factors.
In Oriental medicine, there is no separation between the body, mind and spirit. That which affects one area of our health and life is believed to affect all others.
Our modern lifestyle is filled with a variety of stressors and these will invariably have some impact on our physical, mental and emotional health. Acupuncture may support the symptoms of such stressors by bringing balance back into our lives.
When there are more deep-seated mental health issues, acupuncture and Oriental medicine may be used as a supportive therapy in conjunction with other treatment modalities (Chan et al., 2015) to help achieve more balance. According to Bosch et al., (2015) there is positive evidence that acupuncture is effective and safe for major depressive disorders, especially in helping to improve sleep, mood and quality of life.
