Pacific Palisades, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
National Relaxation Day is August 15 and Ganit Kriel, licensed acupuncturist at Thumos Health Center, is urging people to utilize the day to reduce their stress. According to Kriel, acupuncture is a remedy for stress that works by stimulating healing hormones that effectively drop cortisol levels and improves the body’s ability to heal itself, mentally and physically.
Kriel is asking people to take action in honor of the national holiday by seeking stress reducing care using traditional Chinese medicine.
“Although stress itself may be unavoidable, the impact of stress on our lives and our personal health can be greatly lessened,” Kriel says. “We help patients break the grip of stress on the body and mind, allowing better sleep, less anxiety, and a more focused you.”
According to the staff at the Mayo Clinic, a person’s body is “hard-wired” to react to stress in order to protect the person from threats from predators and other aggressors that generally no longer exist. However, instead of running from wildlife, people now suffer from things such as large workloads and making sure a person can take care of their family; and these are the things that the body now treats as stress, opposed to the minor hassles that they really are.
In the same posting on the Mayo Clinic website, it says stress can put a person at risk for several stress induced conditions. These can include depression, weight gain, anxiety and heart disease, among others.
“A key feature of the Eastern approach to wellness is its renowned ability to deflect and counter stress that might otherwise lead to illness, insomnia, anxiety or an inability to proactively focus on tasks,” Kriel says. “The array of time tested acupuncture and herbal remedies we use at Thumos have helped countless generations cope with their stress issues.”
