Anxiety

Anxiety

I believe that peace of the Heart and Mind is a basic requisite for our lives.

Unfortunately for many, living with Anxiety is a full time job. The persistent and debilitating nature of this ailment can leave you helpless.

Symptoms Include

  • Stomach Upset
  • Constipation/Diarrhoea
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Restlessness
  • Sweating
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia

I use a multi-disciplined approach, combining Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy, Natural Herbs for Anxiety. This on top of weekly Acugraph assessments all proving to make significant results. All address body, mind, emotions and spirit. Where there is imbalance, these are very effective all combining to have wonderful results.

In reality, stress affects men and women from all walks and ages of life. Quite often, the result of exposure to prolonged negative stress, leads to issues such as pain or as a growing body of evidence reports, mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, palpitations, worrying, insomnia, physical health disorders such as Migraines/Headaches, vertigo, Irritable Bowel and much more. Complicated with this is the stigma associated with mental health disorders. While people can and do recover from these periods in their lives, the road to recovery and management of stress can be more complex than often portrayed. Diverse strategies are needed to deal with this growing complaint within Ireland, and Acupuncture is one such strategy. Our system of medicine has written about how the human body behaves for over five thousands of years. Such extensive knowledge, tried, practised and still evolving today, understands the fundamental necessity of responding to stress in a positive manner. Treatment plans therefore encompass the mental, emotional and physical aspects of the self. Specific acupuncture points calm the mind down, encourage peaceful sleep and relax the diaphragm to help breathing to mention but a few. Traditionally, acupuncture excelled in prevention of ill health and stress, is very often recognised as one of the main precursors to health problems. (Irish Heart Foundation). If we can treat to help prevent illness, then it stands to reason we can treat stress and its manifestations, be it mentally, physically or emotionally. It may be that societies and the demands of life have changed, but the human body has not.
