Stress can build up over time or may be due to one-off events beyond our control. Sometimes the feeling of stress can result from the excessive use of stimulants such as coffee, sugar and alcohol overtaxing the adrenals. Sometimes we don’t notice the accumulation of stress until we overreact to situations or develop symptoms such as shoulder tension, disturbed sleep, IBS, or headaches.

Classical Five-Element Acupuncture will work on where the stress has had an impact internally and release it from the mind and body leaving you feeling calmer and clear and more able to make changes.
