Anxiety is a major factor in loss of sleep. For this reason we target anxiety in order to help the patient to sleep more profoundly through the night.
Shining a light on your Anxiety Problem
Everyone experiences anxiety uniquely. Whether your symptoms expresses as neck tension, an upset stomach, panic, or any number of anxiety-based symptoms, they all can lead to a lack of timely sleep.
The sufferer is unsure something’s actually wrong but, if there is, he knows he can’t cope with it. Sleep can suffer mightily in this environment, and every thought contributes to the negative spiral.
The Western medical community chooses to medicate the sufferer. All this does is knock the person out. But there is usually a physiological response taking place. The adrenal glands spit out cortisol, a chemical that induces anxiety stress. It’s not all in your mind by a long stretch.
We first identify what sort of anxiety we’re dealing with. They include: Generalized Free-floating Anxiety
Panic attacks, Obsessive thoughts
Vague Fears and nerves, Phobias, Difficulty Coping With Stress, Performance anxiety, Worry and uncertainty
Anxiety linked to low self-esteem or confidence.
Once we see how your anxiety manifests, we determine how to best work for you. Our methods include Acupuncture and Chinese herbs, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hormone balancing, or Functional Medicine. One of our goals, not unlike with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is to replace old, damaging ‘tapes’ and ‘hard-wire’ positive ones. NLP is often a powerful option for that.
Acupuncture relaxes the mind and body, thereby ‘rebooting’ the way the body responds to stress.
Hormone Rebalancing allows us to repair parts of the body that have been damaged by anxiety and stress using organic supplements.
If you’re currently on prescription medication or under a therapist’s care for anxiety or depression, we will coordinate with your licensed medical provider.
