Not quite the same as acupuncture, acupressure works wonders for lowering the feeling of angst and helping the body relax. Acupressure has been studied in Chinese medicine for over three hundred years. This method focuses on the nerve endings in your ears. You can stimulate these nerve endings by rubbing your ears and gently pulling on the lobes. This will help to calm down and feel more relaxed.
Herbal medicine is often overlooked by most Western medical professionals even though it offers countless options for stress relief. By working with the licensed herbalists at Michigan Acupuncture Studio we can create customized formulas that can suit your specific needs. Chinese medicine has a rich foundation in pharmacology that is used to treat the individual based not only on their symptoms but also the root cause of their suffering. Here at Michigan Acupuncture Studio, we custom blend herbal formulas, uniquely tailored to each patient.
Deep breathing is one of the quickest and best ways to lower stress levels in a moment. When an individual gets stressed out their breathing often becomes shallow and more rapid. This is often a problem for those who are prone to panic attacks. Deep breathing can turn off the body’s natural stress response, lowering your blood pressure and heart rate, as well as increasing your functionality during a stressful event. Simply remember to slow down every once in a while.
Take a Bath
Imagine a bubble bath, candles, and a tall glass of wine… sounds like heaven, right? This is something we love to recommend to our patients. When you take time for a bath your body can benefit from it in many ways. During a bath, your body seeps into a process called dermal absorption. This occurs when the body soaks up traces of minerals in the water, like magnesium, which helps increase stress relief. For even better results try adding in Epsom salts and Himalayan sea salts. Baths can also improve blood circulation and lower blood pressure from the endorphins released due to the warm water. For an even more calming effect, add essential oils to your tub like lavender, lemon, and chamomile.
Go for a walk
It might sound silly but going for a walk is more than just exercising. It’s a fantastic way to reduce stress after a long day. Exposure to sunlight will help your body increase its vitamin D levels. Due to our work schedules and changes over the years humans are more vitamin D deficient than ever. Sunlight can help our overall moods and when we don't get enough, our bodies can start to get out of whack. If you are noticing higher stress levels in your life give it a try. It might make a big difference.
