Anxiety is the most common mental health issue. One in four Canadians experiences at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Anxiety can manifest in different disorders such as GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), social anxiety, health anxiety, OCD, etc. Anxiety symptoms are not only in your thoughts, feelings, but also manifest in your body such as nausea, heart palpitation, dizziness, digestive problems, sleeping problems etc. We use mindfulness, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and acupuncture to treat your anxiety in a body-mind integrated approach.
Depression as a symptom can occur in many different conditions such as major depressive disorder, bi-polar disorder, Seasonal Affective disorder, post-partum depression, and addiction issues. You may also experience it when you go through a significant life event like the loss of a loved one. For people who experience depression, they often experience physical symptoms such as digestive problems, sleep problems, and chronic pain. We use mindfulness, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and acupuncture to treat your depression in a body-mind integrated approach.
After you experience traumatic events such as crimes, natural disasters, accidents, war or conflict, or other threats to life — or after you witness your loved ones experiencing these events — you may develop symptoms such as flashbacks, feeling edgy and unsafe, difficulty concentrating, or feeling numb and detached. You may also experience problems with sleeping and eating. We can help you to feel grounded, to relax, and to start healing.
