What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a feeling that everyone experiences at some point in life. However, some people experience it far more than others. Feeling anxious all of the time can have a significant impact on your health and wellness, causing gut health issues, aches and pains, and other physical complications.

Anxiety responds well to many wellness therapies. Many people with long-term anxiety turn to acupuncture because the procedure releases hormones and neurotransmitters that make you feel good while reducing the stress hormone cortisol.

At Heaven & Earth Acupuncture, the team evaluates your anxiety by asking questions about your routine, health, and habits. Then, they make recommendations for helpful anti-anxiety wellness services.

What are some common signs of anxiety?

Everyone experiences anxiety in their own ways, and some are better at self-regulating it than others. You might even have an anxiety disorder, which causes you to feel persistent nervousness or fear.

Physical and mental signs of anxiety include:

  • Rapid breathing
  • Trembling
  • Sweating
  • Increased heart rate
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Trouble sleeping
  • A sense of doom
  • Lots of worry
  • Gastrointestinal problems

Wellness therapies and lifestyle changes can address your anxiety and reduce the intensity and frequency of your symptoms.

How can I manage my anxiety?

Heaven & Earth Acupuncture offers several wellness services that can help you manage your anxiety and the stress that often cycles with it. The team talks to you about your needs and preferences before recommending therapeutic anti-anxiety treatments. Your options include:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ages-old Chinese medicine treatment that balances energy flow throughout your body. Your acupuncturist places fine needles in pressure points located along energy pathways of the body called meridians.

Therapeutic massage (Tui-Na)

Tui-Na, translated to “pinch and pull,” is a therapeutic massage technique that can take the place of acupuncture when it’s not an appropriate option. 

Vaginal steam 

Vaginal steam is a therapy that involves sitting over steaming water, often infused with herbs. Among its many wellness benefits are stress and anxiety relief. 

Nutrition

Stress can have a significant impact on how you eat. The team at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture can point you toward dietary changes that promote less anxiety. 

If the stress and anxiety you experience is a lot to bear, call Heaven & Earth Acupuncture or book an appointment online today.
