Stress Management & Wellness
So much to do, so little time.
One of the greatest challenges in managing stress is making the time to do so. And yet, carving out that time usually proves well worth the effort. While there are certainly some commonalities when it comes to stress, each person's health is impacted by it in a different way.
Common physical symptoms of stress include clenching or grinding teeth, changes in diet or appetite, sleep disturbances, mood changes, short temper, and more. How does stress show up in your body?
Many people experience stress and related health impacts. You don't need to. We can help your body respond to stress in a healthier way.
In addition to clearly defined periods of high stress, many of us suffer from chronic daily stress related to demanding work schedules, busy personal calendars, and our modern multi-tasking lives. The impact of chronic stress can be harder to see sometimes, but is just as important to address. Often, it is only once the effects of chronic stress are identified and addressed do we see exactly how pervasive and impactful they truly are.
Above and beyond treating stress holistically (that is, addressing body, mind, and spirit), Chinese medicine is an effective tool for fostering wellness. This approach is based on the philosophy that health is not just the absence of disease, but includes wellness and truly thriving.
