Stress, Anxiety, Mood, Sleep

Acupuncture for Stress

We all face stressors in our lives and, unfortunately, we can’t always remove those stressors – you have to pay the bills, take care of your kids, respond to too many work emails.

But acupuncture can help with decreasing the long-term impacts of stress on your body, giving you the tools you need to manage your stress when it arises, and reshaping your relationship with stress.

Through a combination of acupuncture, lifestyle tools, and sometimes herbal medicine or supplements, our patients learn to manage their own stress in a sustainable fashion. 

And, since we all deal with stress, why not learn to keep it at bay?

Acupuncture for Anxiety, Depression and Mood

Acupuncture for anxiety, depression and mood ​

Maybe you’re dealing with anxiety that takes over your life in the form of panic attacks. Perhaps you can’t get out of bed most days because depression weighs you down. Or maybe you’re so irritable that it’s interfering with your relationships.

Here at Flourish, we work with you to identify the root cause of your mood disruption. From a Chinese / East Asian medicine perspective, there is no differentiation between psychology / emotional care and physical care. You are one whole person – and it’s our job to identify the imbalance that is causing your issues.

As such, balancing the physical body can have a huge impact on your emotional wellbeing, and vice versa. Imbalances in your hormones, gut health, immune system and other systems, can strongly influence your brain function, and your mood.

We use acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutritional / lifestyle changes, as well as spiritual support and guidance, to help you find the emotional peace that you’re looking for.

Acupuncture for Sleep

Are you having trouble falling asleep?

Or maybe you can fall asleep just fine, but you’re waking up in the middle of the night, or too early in the morning. Whatever the issue, Flourish can help!

We work with you to get to the underlying root of your insomnia. Maybe you’re having a blood sugar drop at night, maybe your hormones are out of whack, or maybe you need some tools to help center your mind at nighttime.

Using acupuncture, sleep hygiene and nutritional recommendations, and non-habit-forming herbs and supplements, we pull your body into balance so that sleep comes more easily.

And although Chinese / East Asian medicine has long recognized the negative impacts of sleeplessness on the body and spirit, research is just catching up with the negative impacts that insomnia can have long-term. So it’s never too soon to start working on your insomnia!
