Stress is a modern day epidemic. Our lifestyles have become bound by daily stressors from when we wake up to well after our heads have hit the pillow. In ancient times our fight or flight response saved our lives from predators or other dangers. Unfortunately this system didn't evolve as quickly as society did. This system can not tell the difference between a tiger in the jungle and an angry boss.
When our fight or flight system is overstimulated our brain releases adrenaline and cortisol in our bloodstreams to prepare us for action.
But when these chemicals build up in our bloodstreams they can cause all manner of debilitating problems. Fortunately there is help. At the Bay Area Center for Anxiety we recognize the enormous impact of stress in our lives and work hard to help our clients reduce this silent killer. Using a combination of Eastern and Western philosophies and techniques, we can help you overcome your stress and give you control of your life and your health.
