Emotional Wellbeing at The Wild Fox Acupuncture Clinic in Byron Bay NSW
Our Emotional wellbeing is so important and it underpins most illnesses. Our lives seem to be more complicated, getting busier, we work more, have less time for rest, we have high expectations & goals, we’re trying to balance families, work, creative projects & friendships and it’s stressing us out!
Stress, Anxiety & depression are on the rise in Australia with almost two in five Australians reported experiencing some depression symptoms, with 13% of these reporting depression symptoms in the severe to extremely severe range. More than one quarter of Australians reported experiencing at least some anxiety symptoms, with 13% reporting severe to extremely severe levels of anxiety, with findings showing younger adults continue to have higher levels of depression and anxiety symptoms compared with older Australians.
Stress continues to affect the mental and physical health of Australians, with just over seven in ten Australians (72%) reported that current stress was having at least some impact on physical health, with almost one in five (17%) reporting that current stress was having a strong to very strong impact on physical health. Almost two in three Australians reported that current stress was having at least some impact on their mental health (64%), with almost one in five (19%) reporting it was having a strong to very strong impact.
Acupuncture is a powerful way to treat stress, anxiety & depression ~ it helps soothe the nervous system, balance stress hormones, and support your body to rest, recover, heal and have the energy you need to live well. Acupuncture & herbal medicine combined with my unique style of massage can help treat a myriad of emotional imbalances including;
- Brain fogginess, forgetfulness & poor concentration
- Obsessive behaviours
- Overthinking & excessive worry
- Lack of passion & direction in life
- Mood Swings
- Grief & Sadness
Life’s always going throw us curve balls ~ that’s just life, I strongly believe that life’s about experiencing all emotions instead of shutting down and trying to ignore the hard stuff. In my acupuncture clinic I’ve seen first hand how effective acupuncture can be in supporting people to “feel” their emotions.
Along with acupuncture & herbal medicine, I also use Australian Bush Flower Essences and Nutritional guidance to bring balance to your emotional wellbeing.
