Why Therapy is Leaving You Stuck and Secrets to Truly Healing

July 29, 2016

Life is tough. Turn on the nightly news and you’ll see war, death, and stories of suffering.

As if that isn’t enough, our daily lives are filled with stress. Work is hard. Personal issues cause pain in families and friendships. We are pulled in so many directions that find ourselves in overwhelm trying to cope.

It’s no wonder that anxiety and depression affect so many of us.

That’s why it’s so critical for everyone to devote time to nourishing our body, mind, and soul. They are all intricately tied together.

Have you ever noticed that in times of stress, even if you emotionally are able to work through an issue it still affects your body? You may feel that as a knot in your stomach, a tension in your neck, or a sense of heaviness and fatigue.

There’s a reason for that.

When we experience emotional pain, it affect our bodies too. That’s why it’s so important to consider a total body approach to experience lasting peace and healing. That’s why therapy and acupuncture work together hand in hand.

Research shows that patients with anxiety, depression and anger also have experienced relief of physical symptoms that have included muscle pain, insomnia, digestive issues, and headaches.

This can lead to the patient asking for anti depression or other medications to address the symptoms they are experiencing. But it fails to address the root of the problem. Stress locks up energy in certain areas of our body that leads to tension, pain, and disease.

Here’s how therapy and acupuncture work together for complete healing:

  1. Therapy works on the emotional side to help you clarify the issues, feel understood, support, and find peace and strength.
    A therapist can help you through mental, behavioral, and emotional pain you are experiencing.
  2. Acupuncture helps to release blocked energy in the system that runs throughout the body.
    This helps to relax the body and help it work more efficiently. By internal processing the symptoms that the stress has created, your body can heal as well.

Together, this combined treatment works to address both the mind and body to release tension at the core of the body. Our mind and emotions are so intertwined that if un-managed, it can destroy the health and wellness of our bodies.

Healing the mind, body, and soul simultaneously to face all stressful life situations is more efficient and effective than simply focusing on only one part of our wholeness as a person.
