Stress is the “wear and tear” our bodies experience as we adjust to our continually changing environment; it has physical and emotional effects on us and can create positive or negative feelings. As a negative influence, it can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and more. With the death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we readjust our lives. In so adjusting to different circumstances, stress will help or hinder us depending on how we react to it.
Deadlines, competitions, confrontations, and even our frustrations and sorrows add stress to our lives. Our goal is not to eliminate stress but to learn how to manage it and how to use it to help us. Insufficient stress acts as a depressant and may leave us feeling bored or dejected; on the other hand, excessive stress may leave us feeling “tied up in knots.” What we need to do is find the optimal level of stress which will individually motivate but not overwhelm each of us.
There is no single level of stress that is optimal for all people. We are all individual creatures with unique requirements. Even when we agree that a particular event is distressing, we are likely to differ in our physiological and psychological responses to it.
It has been found that most illness is related to unrelieved stress. If you are experiencing stress symptoms, you have gone beyond your optimal stress level; you need to reduce the stress in your life and/or improve your ability to manage it. At Elements Wellness Center, we offer many therapies to assist you in learning to manage stress in your life. Contact us today to learn more!
Amazing! The improvements with my female issues are almost unbelievable as I have tried many, many different things and thought I was headed for a hysterectomy, but now, at this time do not need any surgery. My headaches are also better – he really helped with those too. Leslie Halsteft
Dr. Su’s sessions noticeably and immediately alleviated all of my symptoms. Ihave been sleeping better, breathing more easily and enjoying greater peace of mind as a result of my acupuncture treatments. D. Herring
All my expectations have been met – from the entire friendly staff to the incredible expertise of Dr. Mark. I have had great improvement in my cycle and we are continuing to work together to help with fertility, as my husband and I hope to start a family. I always feel better after a treatment and look forward to my visits every week. Jill Douglas
I am more centered. I find a new avenue to channel different thought patterns. I feel more relaxed to express my creativity and art. I was sick with a spleen/stomach condition at Christmas time and was treated properly and with extra special care which I am thoroughly appreciative of. I enjoy each acupuncturist’s gifted style. Keep up the great work! M. Rowlgm
My allergies have gone away completely with doing acupuncture and taking Chinese Herbs. I’m more relaxed on a daily basis. Now doing the treatments once a week and feeling great. It’s really true what they say about the treatments, it’s like a two hour nap. I also had a shoulder injury recently. With Dr. Mark’s expertise in Manual Therapy, he was able to treat my last shoulder injury as well. Not to mention, I never told him about the injury 4 years ago. That, to me alone, is amazing that he would know about it. Thank You so much for helping me. I. Marnito
