Stress, Massage, Acupuncture and Herbs in Longboat Key
Treat your stress with massage, acupuncture and herbs in Longboat Key at the Longevity Wellness Center. As a health care practitioner, my family members look to me for emotional comfort and health care recommendations. That means, not only do I have to be emotionally strong, but I have to bring my A game to every situation and be mentally strong to figure out the right remedy for my loved one. If I’m stressed and distracted by hectic schedules, depression, or fear, then I will not think clearly. If I’m centered and focused, then I can be a powerful asset to them.
How many instances of stress-causers have you experienced already today? Was there traffic on your drive to work? Do you worry daily about bills to pay, a friend or family member going through a difficult time, paperwork you need to do, or a decision you need to make?
All of those little things add up and cause stress in the body, and stress causes blind spots. Maybe it’s a personality blind spot, such as coming across brusque or rude when in your “work mode”, or you’re driven to distraction from worry and unable to function in everyday task like driving. Blind spots can be dangerous. The good news is, there’s a lot we can do to help.
When I recently had three family members in the hospital on the same day, the first thing I did was booked a massage appointment and an acupuncture appointment with the practitioners I love. Why did I do that?
Massage, acupuncture and herbs were key components of my protocol for myself. Here’s why:
Massage is grounding, relaxing and therapeutic. It allows an energetic connection with a human being who wants to see you feeling better which is a lovely energy to hang out with. Stress causes lactic acid to build up in muscles and in the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds all muscles and organs. This causes the constricted, achy feeling we can get when we’re stressed out.
Acupuncture allows us to get deeper. It allows us to treat internal organs and to treat the root cause of stress-related dysfunctions likes: constipation, diarrhea, heart arrhythmia, insomnia, elevated liver enzymes, hair loss, high blood pressure and blood sugar problems.
Both are especially powerful when combined with whole food supplements and Chinese herbal therapies.
