Everyone experiences stress. Stress is a common human response that we all have to deal with. Not all stress is bad; stress can be considered a good thing in some instances since it is a natural motivator and survival tool. However, too much stress or chronic stress can have detrimental health effects on our minds and our bodies. It’s important to learn how to manage our stress levels and find outlets that help us release excess stress and tension naturally. Read below about how some of our services specifically target stress.
Acupuncture works to bring the body back into balance by targeting specific areas on the body with the insertion of acupuncture needles. Acupuncturists can use specific points to balance the body and help ease stress, anxiety, and other mental and physical health issues. Acupuncture calms the mind and elicits our body’s own innate healing system. Our center also utilizes additional modalities during acupuncture treatments to deepen the relaxation experience and relieve stress quickly. Learn more about our healing modalities here.
Massage Therapy releases what we call “happy hormones” including oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine, all of which make you feel good, content, and happy. Massage therapy also helps relieve pain with the healing power of strategic touch. Our tailored bodywork helps increase circulation, eliminate toxins, and alleviate built up physical and emotional tension. Learn more about our massage services here.
Meditation & Breathwork
Meditation & Breathwork are a powerful pair when it comes to stress relief. Meditation is the practice of focusing your awareness on a particular thought, object, or activity, noticing when the mind wanders, and then bringing your attention back to your desired focal point. Training your attention helps you settle a stressed mind, evoke feelings of contentment, and help you navigate present and future stressful situations with more ease. Breathwork activates the parasympathetic nervous system, helping your body feel safe, relaxed, and recharged. Learn more about our meditation offerings here:
Medical Cannabis Consultation
Research shows how cannabinoids such as THC and CBD have a profound and positive effect on stress. If you are chronically stressed or anxious, you may benefit from speaking to our doctor about whether medical cannabis is right for you. Cannabis may still seem to get a bad rep from some of society (especially THC), but with professional guidance it can be a safe and effective way to manage stress, anxiety, pain, and insomnia.

Yoga & Qigong
Sometimes movement can be the best medicine when it comes to relieving stress. Gentle and nourishing movements can be taken during our yoga or qigong classes. Studies show that yoga and qigong both lower cortisol levels (a stress hormone in the body), elicit a relaxation response, and improve emotional and physical balance.
