How do I help you to improve anxiety?
Welcome to Guiomar Campbell’s integrative medicine for mental health!
I am glad you are here, and I am grateful we are connecting.
Often people ask me what is my integrative approach to anxiety symptoms and how it can help them to release tightness in their chest and improve their breathing abilities. I say it is a combination of various healing modalities that work alongside western medicine focusing on patients strength, lifestyle changes and their abilities to to heal themselves. When patients understand that their feelings, sensations and thoughts can play a big role in their improvement and prevention of disease, they become motivated and in charge of their health . Integrative medicine assists patients in their spiritual, emotional and mental health.
In order for the body to heal itself, it is important to also address people’s feelings and sensations helping them to understand their experiences and trust the healing ability of their bodies.
In my treatment, I address the practice of positive thoughts and different breathing techniques to improve anxiety symptoms and I educate my patients to take charge of their bodies. When the mental and emotional self are taken care of, a person feels motivated to make lifestyle changes, to improve their diet and to have motivation to exercise. When talking to patients about their treatment I often here, I feel much better than before and I feel more relaxed. I know and I understand that no matter what symptoms patients are experiencing, the goal is to feel relaxed and safe. Establishing a good connection and trust with my patients is very important to me.
Complementary or integrative therapies includes various healing modalities, I like to call it healing arts, including traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathic, ayurvedic and homeopathic medicine, chiropractor, osteopath, shiatsu therapist, massage therapist, Reiki, psychotherapists, nutritionists, prayer and the list goes on. There are 80 types of alternative therapies available in our society.
I have over 20 years of experience treating patients with anxiety disorders using acupuncture and energy work, and I have seeing tremendous improvement in them specially when comes to managing their physical imbalances understanding what is healthy to their bodies and what is not. Patients learn how to cope with their mental health issues, as well as overcoming side effects of medications naturally. Understanding the patient’s needs helps me to properly diagnose and treat. Patients are happy when they are given direction and recommendations for their imbalances.
Acupuncture therapy uses cupping, acupressure technique, movement Qi gong, moxabustion, guasha, electro therapy and needling to treat imbalances. The therapist will diagnose patient’s condition by checking the pulse and tongue, family history, life style, diet, sleep, physical imbalances as well as through observation and palpation.
Common mental conditions treated are depression, anxiety, anorexia, insomnia, manic depression and mood swings.
Acupuncture is also beneficial in treating anxiety in men and women that are trying to conceive. They have reported feeling less anxious and more focus on staying healthy throughout their treatment.
Women who are experiencing PMS and painful periods, PCOS, cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, irregular period, discomforts in pregnancy or menopause are improving their health from this integrative approach.
