Stress affects us all from time to time and as long as we stay in control it can be a positive thing. Ask any athlete or performer.

Long-term stress is a different matter altogether. The longer it goes unchecked, the more damage it does.

80% of illnesses are stress-related

People who endure continuous stress and anxiety have an increased risk of suffering from high blood pressure, low immunity and depression, even life-threatening conditions such as heart disease and cancer.

 The effects last for several weeks . . . Sessions don't simply revolve around needles but exploration of the wider problem. Ian is very understanding and perceptive.

The warning signs of stress

You find yourself becoming less tolerant than usual. Or you burst into tears at the slightest provocation. You become susceptible to extreme mood swings. One minute you are picking an argument, the next you draw into your shell.

You may have physical symptoms: tension in your shoulders and neck, headaches, lack of energy, hyperactivity, indigestion, loss of appetite, food cravings, disturbed sleep or insomnia.

Now is the time to act before it develops into something more serious.

 After the treatment I felt more at ease with myself and less anxious. I now feel much more in control.

  • you can't face getting out of bed

  • you feel depressed
  • you can't cope with life
  • you have an indefinable feeling of foreboding

The benefit of acupuncture treatment is that by alleviating the symptoms, it gives you the space to address the underlying cause in a sustainable and effective way.
