Stress is a physical, mental, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension. Stresses can be external (from the environment, psychological, or social situations) or internal (illness, or from a medical procedure). We may suffer from 4 main types of stress: Acute stress is the type of stress that throws you off-balance momentarily. Chronic stress is the type of stress that tends to occur on a regular basis. This type of stress may leave you feeling drained, and can lead to burnout if it’s not effectively managed. The reactionary Type is emotional which can hit harder than some other types of stress. For example, the stress that comes from a conflicted relationship. The last type is burnout is the result of the prolonged chronic stress of situations that leave people feeling a lack of control in their lives.
In Balsam Clinic, we attempt to influence our clients to consider making changes, rather than engaging in non-directive therapeutic exploration. The examination and resolution of ambivalence is a central purpose, and is intentionally directive in pursuing this goal. In parallel we provide a variety of anti-stress herbal and nutritional supplements and some acupuncture points which are effective to alleviate the stress level
