Stress relief

Stress and anxiety arises from many factors and affects us in various ways. Address the cause of your stress so you can get on with your day with calm and joy…

Too stressed to enjoy life?

You’re not alone. Work life, home life, family and relationship challenges, financial and political issues can all lead to a build up of stress. All this stress can have a radical affect on your body, emotionally and physically, affecting sleep patterns, eating habits, causing sudden weight changes, and reducing energy and immunity.

Luckily, research, as well as over 85 5-Star reviews from my satisfied clients show that acupuncture can help to relieve stress.

How acupuncture can help relieve stress

Research on acupuncture suggests that it works to reduce stress by regulating neurotransmitters in the brain associated with stress and pain, as well as deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry. Acupuncture can restore harmony in your body, putting everything back in tune and restoring the natural balance of your mental, physical and emotional health.


How York Traditional Acupuncture can help

As an Anxiety UK Approved Practitioner, I personalize your acupuncture plan, and tailor it to help most with the unique kind of stress or anxiety you are experiencing. In addition to acupuncture you will receive general stress-reducing lifestyle advice to help speed up your progress.

Generally, after an acupuncture session, it is typical to feel much calmer, more relaxed and aware of the improvement in your sense of well-being. The reason? This is because, research suggests that acupuncture helps the body release its own serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with well-being and happiness.

Acupuncture provides a safe and natural way to help you manage the stress and anxiety of modern society. It’s so simple yet so effective, and it’s been used safely for thousands of years.

What my clients are saying about acupuncture in relieving stress…

I went to Tiziana after the recommendation of a friend, because I was dealing with stress, digestion and skin problems and in spite of not having previously tried acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, the results had been noticed quickly. My stress has decreased since I’m working with her and the digestion and skin issues have also improved. I recommend her if you are thinking of trying acupuncture and you reside in York.

Tiziana in my opinion is nothing short of the best. ~I have tried various modalities and acupuncturists over the years, for both myself and my children. She is with out a shadow of a doubt a complete professional expert in this field… understanding the importance of the wholistic approach which achieves greater results… I cannot thank you enough. Or praise your rare level of commitment to expertise…. Highly recommended.

I visited weekly to gain more energy, be less stressed and feel more motivated. I was given great advise on how to balance life and work better. After the acupuncture, I felt more energised and capable of taking on the challenges I faced at the time.
