Combat Stress at Total Health
Stress is one of the most common health issues in our society and can affect one’s health physically and mentally. Without proper stress management, a person may experience gastrointestinal problems, mental health issues, personality disorders, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, obesity, eating disorders, menstrual problems, sexual dysfunction, hair and skin problems, and much more. At Total Health we have numerous services that can ease stress such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic Care, Cupping, IV Therapy, Massage, Reiki, Cryotherapy, and Infrared Sauna.
How Does Acupuncture and Cupping Help with Stress?
Acupuncture, a well-established form of traditional Chinese medicine, is known to have a positive effect on people who are suffering from stress. Our acupuncturists in Florham Park and Berkeley Heights use treatments that stimulate natural pain killers in the body by releasing endorphins and eliminating the blockage flow of energy created by stress. By improving the energy flow throughout the body, patients will experience a decrease in symptoms of stress. The body may also experience benefits such as improved self-esteem, mood, decision making, and focus, which all relieve stress.
Cupping is often times incorporated into acupuncture sessions and is a great way to promote deep relaxation and eliminate chronic stress throughout the body. Cupping, also a form of traditional eastern medicine, is proven to boost blood flow to local areas in the body helping tissues to heal.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help with Stress?
Chiropractic Care is another great service we offer to patients suffering with chronic stress. This treatment helps to relieve symptoms such as back and neck pain, muscle aches, fatigue, and headaches, that are commonly caused by stress. By adjusting the neck and spine, our chiropractors in Berkeley Heights and Florham Park can sooth the nervous system and alleviate frequent aliments related to stress. Total Health patients often experience a decrease in pain after the service, which immediately reduces tension in the body physically and mentally.
How Does Massage Therapy Help with Stress?
At Total Health, our experienced massage therapists in Florham Park and Berkeley Heights focus on certain massage techniques tailored to your concerns that can directly reduce the symptoms of stress. Muscles tend to tighten when you are under stress and incorporating Massage Therapy in your life can impact your state of mind and well-being. This therapy is known to decrease pressure and tightness in the body, boosting one’s overall mood, creating relaxation, and rebalancing your hormones. The healing hands of a skilled Total Health provider and the relaxing environment all add to a successful treatment.
How Does Reiki Help with Stress?
Reiki is another great service Total Health provides that can help eliminate stress. This energy healing technique has been used for thousands of years and can be used to heal all areas of life (spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being). Specifically, with stress, Reiki focuses on certain points of the body where we tend to hold tension and worry. Our Reiki providers in Berkeley Heights and Florham Park encourage energy to flow to points in one’s body such as the heart, the stomach, the lower abdomen, and the solar plexus creating awareness.

How Does Cryotherapy Help with Stress?
Cryotherapy is a considerable way to decrease stress, and yet another service Total Health offers. This therapy, also known as “cold therapy,” is a natural treatment that uses low temperatures to treat a number of concerns and conditions. Cryotherapy’s low temperatures stimulate the body’s nervous system while releasing endorphins, adrenaline, and oxytocin. The release of these natural hormones can improve mood and decrease anxiety levels.

How Does Infrared Sauna Help with Stress?
Infrared Sauna is a service Total Health often recommends for patients suffering from stress. Not only does Infrared Sauna create a relaxing environment for each individual, but it also allows your body and mind to loosen. Studies have shown that this therapy creates a healthy level of cortisol and reduces both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use. This is an effective way to reduce stress and simply improve stress levels in your life.
