The world is moving faster and faster, and people have a lot more they need to do than ever before. There are lots of demands on your time. Work hours are expanding, and even slithering into time deliberately set apart for vacations and holidays (“ I’ll be out of the office but checking my emails…”). Side hustles are taking up valuable sleep time, and constant worrying about both the things you can control and the things you can’t are taking up the rest.
I know you’ve heard a lot about self care, but what does it REALLY mean? Self care is simply the practice of taking time for yourself, rather than using up all your time to please other people.
The first thing you think of when you think of “self care” might not be acupuncture, but hear me out.
Acupuncture, first and foremost, helps your body make the most of its own resources, resources that you deplete daily with stress and inadequate nutrition. Just as tight muscles constrict the flow of blood and oxygen, blockages in your Qi constrict the flow of energy through the nervous system, undermining brain function, organ efficiency and ultimately your health. I think we can all agree that letting yourself get run down is the exact opposite of self care.
The fastest way to get things flowing again is to schedule an acupuncture treatment. After a short discussion and perhaps a look at your tongue, your doctor will know exactly what blockages need to be removed to achieve immediate results.
And if taking an hour out of your day to balance your energy and help your body work to its best advantage isn’t enough, it certainly doesn’t hurt that all this is done in a quiet room with dim lights, soft music and a warm, soft bed all to yourself. No yippy neighbor dogs, no shouting kids, no demanding boss. Just bliss.
And bliss is the ultimate goal of any self-care routine.
