Stress. A common response to the demands on the body. However, the feeling of chronic stress can cause inflammation which is a breeding ground for disease. HCB2 has teamed up with Dr. Jamie McLaughlin and Sonja from Spiritual Flow Yoga Studio to offer free auricular (ear) acupuncture to cancer patients, survivors, and care givers. Acupuncture is known to help with insomnia, stress, anxiety, and pain, and Sonja’s beautiful breathing meditation allows participants to learn a new skill that can be used throughout the day. HCB2 strives to help the community create a bodily environment where cancer cannot survive. Finding your calm and using tools and skills to reduce stress are necessary weapons in the fight against all disease, including cancer.
