What is this condition?

We all experience anxiety and stress from time to time. Regardless of the triggers: issues at work, money, relationships, health, new situations or challenging events, stress is a natural part of everyday life.

That is until anxiety sensations and symptoms begin to interfere with our normal lifestyle.

Unfortunately, when anxiety and stress are drawn out or combined with other physical or emotional turmoil, they can have severe effects on our overall well being.

  • I came to Paul last year when I was going through a really difficult time in my life and experiencing panic attacks on a regular basis. I couldn’t recommend him enough. He was so patient and kind. He really took the time to listen and help guide me through the whole process. The acupuncture itself worked wonders, not only for calming me down and helping me sleep, but also for building my energy and mood again. On top of this, Paul also helped me to understand what was happening with the different parts of my body at the time and the connection between the panic attacks and my subsequent ‘low moods’. Having this fuller understanding helped me to see that there wasn’t something ‘wrong’ with me, and that was the light at the end of the tunnel. I really can’t thank him enough for all the help he gave me in that time. I still go back regularly for treatments whenever I feel they’re needed, and have recommended him to many friends who give similar glowing reports.
