Let's Get Physical with AIM for Wellbeing
Physical treatments you can do to help combat anxiety and depression, with Alliance Integrative Medicine (now AIM for Wellbeing), powered by The Christ Hospital Health Network.
We find ourselves at the end of another May and if you’ve been watching the news, your stress levels have been on the rise with the summer temperatures. While 1:1 therapy or coaching sessions help tremendously for those suffering from anxiety, Alliance Integrative Medicine (now AIM for Wellbeing) offers physical treatments that can greatly reduce depression related symptoms. While this month is dedicated to mental health, consider the following recommendations from AIM for Wellbeing to keep you well throughout the year.
Avoid Aggravating Cuisine
Reducing caffeinated drinks, highly processed foods and foods with high sugar content is a good place to start fueling your body well. Although a cup of joe can be a relaxing way to start your day, see what happens by drinking one cup instead of six. Adding foods into your diet like olive oil, avocados, wild-caught fish, nuts, and seeds support and calm the brain because of their healthy fat count. Organic fruits, veggies, and fermented food can also aid in a healthy gut-brain connection that can tremendously help you feel better.
Catch Your Z’s
Hopefully by lessening your caffeine intake, you can up your sleep game simultaneously. Sorry to get personal, but when was the last time you took a bath? AIM for Wellbeing suggests soaking in an epsom salt bath to improve your sleep. Epsom salt contains magnesium, which is prone to help people catch their z’s and reduce anxiety.
While acupuncture can help reduce chronic pain, digestive problems, respiratory distress, even acne, it can also reduce physiological issues like anxiety. According to AIM for Wellbeing, “One of the most profound benefits of acupuncture is its ability to produce a state of well-being. People often feel like they “float out of a treatment.” Patients also regularly report they get sick less often and enjoy having their minor aches and pains taken away.”

Get Hands-On Treatment
AIM for Wellbeing offers Craniosacral therapy (CST), which is a hands-on experience performed by a licensed massage therapist. During a craniosacral therapy session, the central nervous system relaxes and the patient can often sense movements of energy or releases in specific areas of the body, through touch emphasis on the skull and tailbone. According to AIM for Wellbeing, “Craniosacral therapy can benefit anyone who wants to achieve an optimal and balanced state, where the body’s systems are working in harmony with each other.”
