Stress seems an inevitable part of our life, which is closely associated with our daily activities and environmental condition such as family, office, social contacts etc. Stress impacts our well-beings both physically and mentally.
According to the perspective of Chinese Medicine, stress affects the free flow of Qi within the body, resulting in stagnation, excessive internal Heat and poor Blood circulation. Excessive and prolonged stress may impede the delicate balance in our physical body and mind body and trigger diverse health problems.
The threshold of stress varies from person to person related to personal life experience, condition of health (physical and mind). Qigong, an ancient Chinese exercise combination of body, mind and respiration, may build up the stress threshold effectively and de-stress by promoting the Qi activities.
Acupuncture and herbal treatment as two of the common therapies of Chinese Medicine are applied in many countries as integrative approach on stress management.
