World Mental Health Day 2020 is the most important one yet.
This year has been a tough one for us all. The months of lockdown and loss have had a huge impact on our mental health.
According to research, with over 16,000 people, more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health got worse during lockdown. We know that many have developed new mental health problems as a result of the pandemic and, for some of us, existing mental health problems have increased.

When we suffer with mental health issues we are all affected differently as to who we are, our personality, our history, how life has treated us and what help and understanding we have received. There is still a stigma about admitting that you are suffering and often when you do ask there is no help available. Mental health issues can arise at any age and both sexes. With Traditional Five Element Acupuncture each person is assessed as the needs they have, very often my patients come for treatment with another ailment and when taking their history I discover their mental health needs.
Traditional Five Element Acupuncture treats the Body, Mind and Spirit as one because you are one person, though made of many parts: all of which need to interconnect for you to function. Acupuncture can help untangle and put you back together again.

So on this World Health Day look after yourself and have some Traditional Five Element Acupuncture to look after your body, mind and emotions, and tell your friends and family that there is help at hand too.
