What do you think of when you hear the word “anxiety”? Some of us might connect this word with strong mental states such as an unexpected flood of overwhelming, inexplicable emotions or perhaps uncontrollably high levels of stress. Others might recall any number of physical responses to anxiety like shortness of breath, heart palpitations or insomnia. Though this is commonly what anxiety feels like in our minds and in our bodies, anxiety is much more than these symptoms.
In truth, anxiety is the body’s way of protecting ourselves from those deeper traumas that we’re not ready to face, whether emotionally, mentally, physically, or spiritually. Anxiety is an instinctual tool – a natural coping strategy for survival. When we live in either a semi-permanent or a constant state of fear, simple daily tasks and functions can be difficult to perform. How can we move out of survival mode and into the fullness of life’s experiences waiting for us?

Can Holistic Anxiety Treatment Help Me or My Loved One?
Anxiety is more than just a psychological problem and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all easy solution for it. Anxiety is actually a sign of a much deeper stress, fear or trauma manifesting itself within every aspect of our being.
We’re not born anxious. Holistic treatment for healing anxiety begins by acknowledging the truth that anxiety is a coping strategy. The first step to finding healing is to deactivate external stressors and calm the nervous system through the use of healing methods like body work, energy medicine, supplements and occasionally medicine. Once the symptoms of anxiety are eased, we turn inward to really unearth the unresolved traumas or past issues and pains that are causing the anxiety.
At The Sanctuary we believe holistic anxiety treatment can completely heal your anxiety, not just help you manage it. The cure for anxiety lies in the knowledge that we must address the core issue or issues causing it. We treat you as a whole being to address anxiety on all the levels it occurs: your mind, body, spirit.
