Stress can cause problems for anyone, but it can be especially destructive for students. It can interfere with school responsibilities if not treated with appropriate stress management techniques. Massage, acupuncture and meditation have been proven by research studies to quell anxiety. They can be effective weapons in your anti-stress arsenal!
By learning to relax, you can get a leg up on the competition and set a course for attaining life-long goals. Students who learn how to manage stress early tend to stay in school and flourish as well.
The services we offer at Elm City Wellness go beyond the verbal and intellectual and focus on the emotional and physical --where stress hides.
The negative effects of stress can directly impact school performance. It can impede concentration, making it hard to study or do classroom work. It can interfere with sleep, leading to fatigue, and cause muscle tension and pain. It can interfere with immune system functions, making students more prone to illness. It often triggers irritability, which can interfere with socialization and relationships with classmates and instructors. Stress can eventually cause depression if it is not treated.
Elm City Wellness has the tools to help you directly offset the effects of anxiety.
We offer skilled massage therapy, acupuncture and meditation, allowing busy students to take some quiet time for themselves. We can help ease tense muscles while helping you ward off depression and boost your immune system.
We understand that students have unique needs. Our services can be a very effective part of an overall stress management plan and we suggest scheduling your appointments in advance around the most stressful times at school, such as before exams or while working on a major project/paper.
massage & acupuncture is for you, too.
In the music world, injuries may occur frequently as musicians are often pushing beyond their limits. With a musician’s hectic lifestyle, adequate time is often not allowed for the body to heal.
By covering up pain, stiffness, swelling, or aches, you may be masking a deeper problem. These are signals from your body telling you that something is weakened and out of balance. These warning signals are telling you to stop, rest, and heal.

STRESSED? TRY MEDITATION.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU USE INTENTIONS WITH YOUR MEDITATION PRACTICE:
Write down your intentions and, if possible, write them down with a pen and paper. There is power in the physical act of writing it down.
- State your intentions in the positive. For example, instead of saying, “I don’t want any more parking tickets.” State, “I will always find ample, free parking every time I need it.”
- Read over your intentions before you go into your meditation. If you have a lot of intentions, you can skim them. You know what they are and you’re just sending yourself and the universe a gentle reminder.
- Surrender your intentions to the universe. The concept of letting go is not an easy thing to do. However, it’s necessary when setting intentions. Guess what? You’re not in control. Embrace it and feel the freedom of not having to try to control everything in your life.
- Be open to infinite possibilities. We don’t know enough to see the grander picture. But that’s the fascinating thing about the process. Staying open to possibilities keeps life exciting, fun, and yes, worth laughing about.

The practice of meditation helps slow us down.
It allows us to let go of this sense of urgency. It also opens us up to other possibilities without too much interference. We’re all guilty of trying to control every aspect of our lives. Setting intentions is an extremely powerful tool, but the process must be respected for it to work.
Community Acupuncture is done in a traditional Chinese-style group setting which amplifies the healing power of the work with the presence of others receiving similar therapy. This allows us to treat several patients at once and at rates lower than those charged for private-room treatments.
