Look, we’re not going to candy-coat it that although the Holidays are a TON of fun – they’re also pretty stressful! On one hand, it’s time to celebrate the joy of giving and sharing wonderful experiences with your family. On the other hand, you need to manage the gift buying frenzy, be in a dozen different places at once and oh yeah – ‘wonderful experiences’ with your family…
Acupuncture is a gentle treatment that can be useful during these times and hey – whenever dealing with family and the go-go-go nature of the holidays – it’s a good time to make sure you’re centered and balanced before dashing through the snow.
Acupuncture can help you manage stress & anxiety
Small amounts of stress – believe it or not – can be a good thing. Too much can have a significant impact on your long-term health and physical/emotional well being. Acupuncture can help you calm down, channel your energy properly and assist in getting better sleep – all things that can help quell the anxieties and worry associated with the holidays.
Acupuncture helps you balance meals and diet
Guys, even we cheat like crazy during the holiday season! Cookies are awesome, desserts are incredible, we take our ham stacked waste high and we’re probably ready to be enlisted in the Cream Puff crusaders’ holiday army! Not only do we eat A LOT during the holidays – we eat some pretty bad stuff and it shouldn’t go unchecked as fun as it is.
Acupuncture helps with controlling your metabolism, balances out those hormones related to weight gain and most importantly – maintains your desire and motivation to exercise. That’s not even getting into its ability to keep your from hitting that spiked eggnog, reduce your cream puff cravings and reduce your dependency on sugar for fun. That way, when you toss out your annual ‘I’ll lose weight this year’ resolution, you can get a fun, healthy head start on the proceedings!
Acupuncture helps you help others.
“To truly love another, you must love yourself,” they say. While the presents and feelings WE get are great – the holidays are really about how you can be there for everyone else in your life that means something to you. Whether that’s giving time, money, resources or love, giving can deplete a lot of emotional energy. Acupuncture however- can help nourish those positive feelings, replenish all that good juju and bring you back into balance, so that you can continue to share and give with joy.
On behalf of our office, have a happy, fun, safe – and healthy holiday season!
