Long-term exposure to stress at work or in private circumstances can lead to severe exhaustion. Physical, emotional and mental symptoms are known to occur.
The experience of being completely 'burnt out' can be confronting. Even more so because those affected are often known as being extremely energetic. A burnout means there's not a shred of energy left. Even just climbing the stairs can be a challenge.
Insight-driven therapy is essential in the treatment of a burnout. The patient must learn the patterns and pitfalls that lead to burnout symptoms.
Acupuncture can help to restore the energy balance and minimise symptoms of stress.
