Stress has become an unavoidable hazard of modern work as the pressures of our day job eats into our home life and leisure time, according to respected Thurrock acupuncturist Jennie Chew.
Even the most outwardly confident and calm of business managers are often concealing a host of stress-related symptoms which are not only debilitating for the sufferer but could adversely affect health if left ignored.
The good news is that in addition to work/life balance changes, there are holistic treatments available which can successfully redress the body’s energy lines and promote emotional wellbeing again.
Traditional acupuncture can successfully treat a host of conditions including stress by inserting ultra fine needles into specific points around the body to release energy blockages.
Jennie, one of Thurrock’s leading traditional Chinese acupuncturists and owner of Essence of Healing, has successfully treated a number of high-flyers for stress and related conditions such as panic attacks and says the disorder is becoming one of the most frequent complaints she is asked to treat.
“Modern life is very stressful, particularly these days with the current economic situation” she said.
“I’ve recently treated a businessman who suffered with panic attacks, palpitations and anxiety for 22 years. After just six treatments he felt much better. Another lady had panic attacks before every business meeting and again after a few sessions, these ceased.
“Depression, anxiety and stress are all caused by an imbalance in the body. Feelings of stress, frustration and anger cause a blockage in the energy lines and acupuncture helps to release these lines and balance the emotions. It brings the energy down so it’s more stable and rooted.”
If you’re wondering how long it takes for acupuncture to resolve an ailment, it depends.
“Some people respond very quickly while others take longer,” said Jennie.
“In most cases, you have to treat the root cause of the problem so regular sessions are best. Once you are successfully treated, whether the problems will remain at bay will depend on your lifestyle. If you continue living in stress and overworking yourself and facing situations which cause a lot of frustration, it brings you back to the cycle of blockages once again and acupuncture will help to release it.”
Acupuncture can successfully resolve a number of illnesses and treatments including pain associated with headaches, neck and back ache, arthritis and dental problems, in addition to general feelings of ill health or low energy levels. It can also help people suffering fertility problems and women undergoing IVF, both of which Jennie has successfully treated.
Jennie, who is a member of the British Acupuncture Council, runs Essence of Healing from her therapy rooms in Calshot Avenue Chafford Hundred, Grays, Leigh On Sea and Caterham in Surrey. These locations are perfectly situated to serve people at either end of the Thurrock Borough and the surrounding areas of Basildon, Havering, Essex and London.
