Try Acupuncture for Holiday Stress
Many of us feel a disconnect between what we would like our holiday season to be and how we actually experience it. There is so much to do and many of us feel that we fall short of expectations – either our own or others. The stress of the holiday season can quickly turn overwhelming, and when it does, why not try acupuncture for holiday stress?
As an acupuncturist, this is one of my busiest seasons but also one of my favorites. I love talking with patients about their holiday plans as well as helping ease stress so that they can more fully experience the joys of the season.
Here are my top three reasons to get acupuncture between now and the end of December:
- Come in and take a load off
I tell my patients if you don’t complain, I can’t fix it. Acupuncturists, in my experience, are great listeners. We filter what we hear through the lens of our medicine and treat accordingly. Both myself and my employee often act as sounding boards for whatever our patients might have going on in their lives. Listening is great medicine.
- Relax and breath
Getting acupuncture is a perfect way to enforce downtime. We all forget to take time for ourselves and this is especially true at this time of year. Taking time out during our busy schedule to take care of ourselves makes us better able to recognize and feel the joy of the season even when it is chaotic and crazy.
- Use your benefits
Most insurance companies give a certain amount of visits per calendar year. Since we are at the end of the calendar year it is a great time to get started as an acupuncture patient or to use up the rest of your visits before the new year.
