Importance of Having a Grief Sherpa

Grief has the power to cleanse & heal or destroy & destruct. It can feel like a Tsunami that overpowers our entire system shaking us to our knees, affecting our core stability. A roller coaster that takes over our emotions, body and nervous system, reminding us that someone or something important has been lost. Our hearts broken open, in hope that they can begin to cleanse, heal, love and trust again. It offers the choice of stagnation or expansion depending on how we go about connecting to and with the pain. There is no easy way to walk through grief, its excruciating. Allowing someone you trust, that has walked the path before you helps to guide the way and shed light when the darkness feels too unbearable and heavy alone.

Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal disorder with symptoms such as fatigue, chronic and diffuse pain, cognitive impairment, and sleep difficulties. It can affect people of any age and gender, although adult women seem to be most affected. The complexity of the disorder can make it difficult to diagnose and treat. Acupuncture can be a good pain management option for fibromyalgia patients, as it stimulates natural pain-relieving mechanisms in the body and has little to no side effects. A 2018 trial suggested that acupuncture causes changes in the levels of two neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) that are key to fibromyalgia. Acupuncture appears to increase serotonin and decrease substance P, which can improve fibromyalgia symptoms.

Join us on April 12th and 26th to learn where you are out of alignment with these powerful archetypes.

Avoid Injury This Spring

Spring means two things: yard work and stiff, sore muscles. Stretching to prepare muscles for strenuous activities that have not been done since fall is very important.

Options such as designed nutritional formulations, Biofeedback, or NIR Therapy will reduce inflammation and stimulate muscle repair to help you recover quickly and get back to enjoying spring.
