Stress Relief Q & A

When should I talk to a doctor about stress?

Stress is how your body responds to a perceived threat or a situation that requires change. Your body releases a flood of hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, which prepare your body for action. Stress can be positive, helping you stay alert, motivated, and safe. However, when you’re continuously stressed, it can lead to negative symptoms, including:

  • Feelings of nervousness or fear
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Headaches
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Muscle tension
  • Insomnia
  • Rapid heart rate and respiration
  • Fatigue
  • Changes in your eating habits

If these symptoms sound familiar and are interfering with your life, call the team at ALTOGETHER LOVELY and schedule a stress relief consultation. 

Why is stress management important?

Unmanaged stress can have a profound effect on your health and wellness. It contributes to a variety of medical issues and can manifest as other physical symptoms that diminish your beauty. 

For example, when your body continues to release stress hormones, it overtaxes your body. Many people develop inflammation in their digestive tract and throughout their bodies. Your immune system becomes weak, and your blood pressure increases. It can disrupt your menstrual cycle, fertility, and sexual drive and function.

Continuous stress interferes with your overall body function and contributes to acne, hair loss, weight gain, and the condition of your skin. 

How can a doctor provide stress relief?

The team at ALTOGETHER LOVELY begins with a comprehensive consultation, physical exam, and testing. Then, they create a customized program to help you manage and reduce your stress levels, ultimately improving your overall health and wellness.

The team often recommends a combination of stress release techniques. For example, they offer several types of massage, including relaxation and Thai massage. Additionally, Kurt Hoover, PhD, offers psychological counseling to help you explore and identify stressors. He also teaches stress management techniques to help you cope with stress in healthy and productive ways. 

The team might also recommend lifestyle modifications to enhance your overall health, which can help you deal with stress. They might help you adjust your diet and exercise habits or recommend supplements for stress relief. ALTOGETHER LOVELY also offers a variety of aesthetic treatments to enhance your appearance.
