'When the Mind and Spirit are flourishing, the complexion is glowing; when the Mind and the Spirit are declining, the complexion withers. When the mind is stable the complexion is florid'. Yu Chang- ' Principles of Medical Practice' ( 1658).
Stress produces numerous symptoms which vary according to persons, situations, and severity. These can include physical and emotional health decline. According to the St. Louis Psychologists, the process of stress management is one of the keys to a happy and successful life in modern society. Although life provides numerous demands that can prove difficult to handle, stress management is the best way to manage anxiety and maintain overall wellness.
Testimonial'I first met Joan in Oct 20 14, previous to this I had tried various other ways
to deal my symptoms of stress and anxiety with little or no signs of
improvement. As with all the other options I had tried I went with an open
mind but with little hope of escaping what seemed like a way of life which
was holding me back in both my personal and working life.
From my first meeting with Joan I sensed some hope and was optimistic for
what I could gain from this experience. Joan was very professional and made
me feel at ease right from the start, I felt a sense of connection and
that for the first time someone actually understood how I felt and could
see how this was holding me back.
Joan taught me how to relax and to see that there was light at the end of
the tunnel. She challenged me at times to take ownership of how I dealt
with things in my mind and that I had the power to overcome and deal with
these challenges in my life. Since my first meeting with Joan my life has
changed around and I am now facing challenges that I have spent years
procrastinating about, I now fell that I have my Life back. I can not speak
highly enough of Joan and the professional way in which she carries out
Her work. I will continue to use acupuncture proactively in the future.
Thanks Joan for all the Help you have given me'. Stephen 2015
I began seeing Joan last summer at 16 years old. Acupuncture had been my very last resort due to my fear of needles and I was sceptical regarding this form of medicine. After counselling and doctors appointments had not helped with my anxiety, I made the decision to give acupuncture a try. Right from the very first appointment, Joan made m e feel safe and calm. The needles were certainly not what I expected and I released I had nothing to be nervous about. I started to understand what was going on in my head. I was taught about my mental health issue; about what anxiety was and how to cope with it. Joan gave me the tools I needed to help deal with my every day anxiety. I went from being too scared to leave my house without panicking or being in a constant state of anxiety to travelling to America, touring Europe with my friends, (bye bye fear of planes!), performing on stage, re-discovering hobbies and talents I had let go due to fear and becoming a much happier, healthier and confident person. Meeting Joan and having acupuncture has without a doubt been a life changing experience. I can whole heartedly say that my outlook on life has changed dramatically since I started acupuncture with Joan. I no longer think of myself as a weak person. Joan has helped me find my inner strength and taught me how to live again. I realise that acupuncture wouldn't usually be someone of my age's first choice for dealing with the many issues teenagers have to deal with weather it be anxiety, depression or stress (to name a few), but considering how much I learned (and am still learning) from it, I think it would be extremely beneficial to many young people. I now look forward to my acupuncture appointments like a trip to the spa; a re-charge of energy,my weekly boost of happiness. I honestly believe that acupuncture will strengthen even the weakest person. - Aoife (2014)
