London is the city that never sleeps; it is a magnet for ambitious young professionals keen to establish a foothold in the creative and financial sectors, or just to experience life at the heart of a global hub. The pace is fast, the stress levels are intense and mental health issues can be the result. London acupuncture clinics have never been more in demand.
Stresses and strains of the city
London careers are demanding; we work longer hours than any other city in Europe, and the types of financially remunerative careers the city provides are draining. There’s also the pressure when you live in London to train hard and look the part, with punishing gym programmes and personal training sessions. On top of this, fitted around work and the gym, there’s the pressure to party hard to justify your salary and your choice of city, as well as ensuring you don’t miss out on any potential networking opportunities.
Burning candles at both ends
It’s a lifestyle that any young professional in the city can only live for so long, before having to pay the consequences. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to miss the warning signs, and to overlook how the relentless fast pace of our lifestyle choice builds potential issues for later life, depleting energy, affecting our immune system and storing up mental health issues for the future.
Committing to wellbeing
Taking time from your busy schedule to engage in therapeutic acupuncture is an investment in yourself, and in your physical and mental health and wellbeing. With all acupuncture, the core goal is to promote and restore the balance of energy which flows through your body, and the benefits of this rebalancing work on myriad levels. This helps to combat physical conditions associated with stress, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and poor digestion. It also helps to alleviate the underlying emotional conditions. Acupuncture is increasingly being recognised by many health professionals as an important treatment for mental health conditions associated with London life such as stress, anxiety and depression.
