You Can Reduce Stress with Essential Oils and Acupuncture

You Can Reduce stress & generate emotional well-being Quickly with Acupuncture & Essential Oils!

Are you tired of feeling stressed, anxious, worried, depressed or overwhelmed?


Is stress ruining your life?

  • Are your relationships suffering?
  • Is your work life or career not what it should be?
  • Is it affecting you physically with headaches, muscle tension, high blood pressure?
  • Poor sleep patterns, Does it keep you awake at night?
  • Digestive issues?

We know that stress has negative physical impacts on the body such as:

  • Prevents or slows healing time
  • Disrupts our immune system
  • Inhibits good gut bacteria
  • Depletes our bodies of nutrients
  • Creates unhealthy inflammatory responses

quick tips on How you can release stress and feel your best:

  • Go for a brisk walk, be sure to exercise regularly at least 3-5 times per week.  As a plus, you can rub peppermint essential oil onto your temples, or rub into sore muscles before or after exercise.
  • Get Adequate fresh air and sunshine, at least 15-20 minutes per day.  Just for your information extra virgin coconut oil has natural SPF properties of 10, and lavender is a wonderful oil to blend with it for added soothing sensation to the skin.  Not mention lavender naturally helps ease feelings of tension.
  • Take time each day for meditation at least 5-10 minutes.  Try yoga, or Tai-Chi.  Great essential oils to diffuse in the air or rub onto your temples and third eye (center between eyebrows) is arborvitae and frankincense.
  • Start each day with gratitude and positive affirmations.  Lemon essential oil may help stop the negative self-talk.  Lemon oil is uplifting to the mind, and when applied on the base of the skull gives a sense of courage and hope.
  • Use a daily planner to stay organized and on track.  This helps minimize overload, and feeling overwhelmed.  Many people are turning back to a written planner that allows you to plan both personal and work priorities.  Examples of planners are The Law of Attraction Planner or Passion Planner.  You might like to try peppermint, lemon, or melaleuca essential oils rubbed over the middle to outer edge of your right foot, and on the base of your skull, and temples.
  • Eat a healthy balanced diet.  Rub diluted oregano and melaleuca oil on the bottoms of your feet for a cleansing feeling, and ginger and peppermint oil over your tummy to support digestion.
  • Acupuncture can help to keep your Qi-energy balanced, improve circulation, balance hormones, and reduce stressful feelings.  Treatments are designed to build upon the next with a cumulative effect.  Each treatment is created with you in mind to help you move from where you are right now to where you’d like to be.

You can Stress Less & Feel Your Best using Acupuncture and Essential Oils

The series of treatments provided addresses and balances each of the vital areas related to our constitutional emotions, spirit and well-being.  The most basic constitutional emotions we all feel are anger, joy, sympathy, grief, and fear.  The five essentials of well-being are Career-Purpose & Passion, Social & Family-Love & Relationships, Helping Others-Community & Accomplishments, Spiritual-Inspiration & Faith, and Financial-Security & Confidence. Also, sexual, physical, and mental-emotional health.  

You don’t have to understand how each of these are related to your organ-meridian systems, but I think you may get the idea if you imagine how you feel when you are angry.  You hold your breath, clench your jaw, and shout at someone!  Your shoulders and chest rises, your breath is shallow, your eyes feel full, your face may even become red as you blow your top!  Imagine if you feel that way all of the time even without an appropriate trigger, what does that feel like?

With an emotional imbalance in even one area there is obstruction of the flow of Qi-energy that disrupts a healthy emotional cycle, dysfunctional emotional response, distressed feelings, and is a cause of physical disease as well as a symptom of poor organ function.
