We are all familiar with its presence, but are we all aware of its affects? According to the National Institute of Health, stress accounts for about 75-90% of all doctors’ visits. That means that everything from digestion to immunity to pain is influenced by the stress we experience, regardless of whether or not we acknowledge it.
During Self Care for Stress Management, Licensed Acupuncturist Erica Sloan will discuss how the body reacts to stress and the importance of preventative health care for a long, productive life. She will also give simple self care tools that can be easily added to your routine to combat stress, as well as give non-invasive mini treatments.
Come take a midday break to nourish your mind and your body!
With ten years experience in the health and wellness field, Erica Sloan has studied the body from both a western and eastern perspective. Starting her career as a massage therapist on the east coast, she worked alongside doctors to help patients with stress and pain management. After seeing all the benefits of massage to relieve stress, she wanted to learn more ways to combat the pervasive affects of stress on the body and decided to pursue her Masters in Oriental Medicine. Through everything she’s learned in grad school and her own battles with stress, Erica now has a desire to share this knowledge with others to help them achieve their best life.
