Stress Response

  • What is stress and why is it important? Stress is a response to demands on the body and life, a response to crisis and fears.
  •  If stress gets overwhelming it can cause other mental health problems.
  • Emotional exhaustion and physical illness and can impact on work, relationships, families, and every aspect of life.
  • When someone is suffering from negative or overwhelming stress, they may not act or react appropriately in some situations, for example driving, in an argument or rushing causing accidents, with disastrous consequences.

Stress affecting Mind and Body

  • Stress can affect your whole system; emotional problems can lead on to physical problems and visa versa you may suffer with a physical problem which affects your emotional health.
  • Long term issues such as chronic pain, cancer treatments, digestive issues, infertility, grief, family problems, abuse, loneliness, ageing, life changes and more…

Acupuncture studies

Recent studies have shown that acupuncture can reduce cortisol – a hormone associated with stress – while also increasing endorphin levels – known as the ‘feel-good’ hormones. It can also help to reduce the physical symptoms of stress, such as headaches, muscle tension, and digestive issues.
