Stress Relief From Your Orlando Wellness Center
Stress can seem like an inescapable part of life these days. While we cannot escape from all stress there will always be a disagreement with a loved one, a problem at work, or an inconsiderate driver on the highway we can’t control how we respond to this stress. At Pavlik Center for Health and Wellness, our goal is to help you safely manage stress in a constructive and positive manner. Rather than getting angry and yelling at a loved one or falling prey to negative habits like emotional eating, our Orlando Chiropractic care team works with each patient to support healthy stress management habits. We follow a holistic approach to stress management. We integrate whole body treatments like acupuncture with proactive behavioral changes that empower our patients to live life without overwhelming stress.
Orlando Chiropractic Care for Stress Management: Nutritional Counseling, Massage Therapy & Acupuncture
Our stress management focuses on constructively responding to stress and minimize the negative impact that stress can have on your short-term and long-term health. When most of us think about stress, we imagine a tight work deadline, disagreements with spouses, or even a major life change like the loss of a job or unexpected medical diagnosis. We often fail to pay attention to the physiological impact that stress has on our bodies and our health. When we are in a constant state of stress, our bodies are always in “fight or flight” mode, pumping out cortisol and other stress-related hormones. As a result, our bodies become flooded with chemical toxins that can have a deep impact on our subconscious and even on the cellular level. Distressing patterns of beliefs, feelings and thoughts along with stress hormones can do serious damage to our mental, physical and emotional well-being. That’s why our holistic approach to stress management addresses both the mind and body’s wellness needs.
Holistic stress management starts by increasing self-awareness so you can tap into an inner reservoir of calm amidst daily stressors. Meditation, conscious breathing and mind-body exercises are all ways you can train your mind and body to respond differently to stress. Getting stuck in bad traffic or being five minutes late for a meeting is not generally a matter of life or death. Retraining your brain and body to respond differently will help you maintain inner calm and stop stress hormones from bombarding your body. When you practice the principles of healthy living and wellness, your physical stress load will feel lighter and your body will be more equipped to handle major challenges. Nourish your body from within through nutritional counseling and gentle detoxification.
Our Orlando chiropractor recommends acupuncture treatments for relieving stress and re-setting your body’s neuro-chemical balance. In response to stress, the body releases an assortment of hormones into the blood stream. Studies show that acupuncture blocks the chronic, stress-induced hormone elevations that can wreak havoc on the sympathetic nervous system pathways. Massage therapy is also beneficial for re-balancing hormone levels and reducing stress and anxiety.
