Looking for stress management acupuncture on the Gold Coast?
One of the biggest misconceptions about stress is what it’s perceived to look like. Despite what you might think, stress shows up in many different ways. But the biggest thing to note, is that your body doesn’t recognise the differences between emotional stress, mental stress or physical stress.
What this means is if you wake up, rush out the door, get coffee and breakfast on the run. Arrive at work to a backlog, and pressure from your boss. Work through lunch, finish work and head to the gym where you elevate your heart rate and push your body to it’s limit… Your body has been stressed all day.
Even though the stress comes from different places, your body only has the ability to recognise it all as stress. It doesn’t differentiate between the causes.
Consistently living in this wired state doesn’t set your body up to thrive. In fact, it can be incredibly detrimental to your overall health.
Our natural resting state is calmness.
The fight or flight response and the increase in endorphins, should only be a momentary occurrence. With our bodies then returning to their resting state, soon after. However, many people living in modern society can remain in this state for weeks, months and even years, which can lead to long term health concerns. Such as…
- Heart issues
- Depression and Anxiety
- High blood pressure
- Chronic headaches and jaw tension
- Skin Concerns
- Adrenal Fatigue
Common early signs of stress may include…
- Pain, especially neck pain
- Hormone issues
- Immune system problems (Always getting sick)
- Poor sleep quality
- Consistent digestive issues
- Constant foggy feeling
We aim to assist your stress levels the best we can by applying ancient Chinese wisdom to your situation. The goal is to remind your body what it feels like to be in a resting state once again, with the hope of allowing it to function to its full capacity once more.
You may see some of the following benefits after treatment…
- Reduced feeling of stress
- Improved overall health and wellbeing
- Mental clarity and enhanced concentration
- Improved sleep quality
- Increased energy
- Reduced muscle tension and pain
