Symptoms & Triggers of Stress

Symptoms of stress are often progressive. Emotions not addressed can become pathological and be the root of more serious health conditions, manifesting in the physical aspect of the body. Symptoms are different for everyone.

People are approaching clinicians just like me to help them to alleviate the effects of symptoms, patients attend clinic with some or all of symptoms reported:

  • Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Heart palpitations
  • Poor sleep
  • Dry mouth
  • Shortness of breath
  • Excessive sweating
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

There are many reasons why people can encounter stressful situations. whilst this isn’t a definitive list, here are some of the most frequent ones I encounter:

  • Stressful work environment 
  • Past or present trauma such as divorce of financial worries 
  • Childhood experiences 
  • Losing a loved one 
  • Drugs and medication 
  • Emotional instability 
  • Covid-19 

We understand the debilitating effects of anxiety.

Anxiety is a common mental health condition characterised by persistent feelings of fear, worry, and unease. It can manifest in many ways, including physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, and fatigue. Psychological symptoms may include excessive worrying, restlessness, difficulty concentrating, and irritability. Sleep disturbances, digestive issues, and muscle tension are also common among individuals experiencing anxiety. Fortunately, acupuncture is an excellent option that can help restore balance to both your body and mind.

Mental Health

Acupuncture can be safely combined with conventional treatments such as medication or psycho-educational therapy

Stress Relief

Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and cause the release of neurochemical messenger molecules.


An anxiety disorder brings about stronger feelings such as stress, panic and worry, these feelings can be constant or periodic but both are difficult to manage.

Acupuncture v Conventional Treatment Methods

With a stronger emphasis on safely and effectively managing mental health problems, the use of conventional treatment methods has been a cause of concern for some. The use of prescription drugs, such as antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, can put those who take them at risk of experiencing side effects.

Other conventional treatment methods, such as therapy, are not always effective enough to manage symptoms of these disorders. Alternative forms of medicine, including massage therapy and acupuncture, have been gaining popularity among those who want a more natural treatment method. These types of treatments offer important benefits for those who struggle with mental health problems.
