Summer Vacation Idea For You
Vol. 6.1.7

You don't have time for the summer vacation you deserve, but you desperately need to recharge and rejuvenate. You want to reduce your stress and anxiety, but don't have a lot of time to do so.

What options do you have?

A professional massage once a week is a good place to start. But if you already do that and it doesn't seem to be enough, what else is there for you?

Weekly acupuncture treatments could be just the summer get-a-way
you are looking for to help reduce your stress and anxiety!

Acupuncture is performed by licensed professionals in a relaxed office setting.

During a treatment, the naturopathic medical doctor or acupuncturist inserts fine, hair-like needles into points along your body's meridians, the pathways where Qi (pronounced chee) flows.

What is Qi anyway and how can it help me decrease my stress?!?

Very simply put, Qi is the vital force of the body that keeps things working smoothly. Stress and anxiety can cause imbalances of Qi in the body. Acupuncture seeks to correct those imbalances of Qi.

Acupuncture, an ancient treatment from Asia, is gaining popularity in the United States.

It's no surprise since studies show that acupuncture is effective in treating a variety of illnesses including stress and anxiety.

What else can acupuncture be used for?

It can be very helpful for those who want to stop smoking. In Chapter 2 of my eBook House Call: The Doctor Knocks at Your Door with the Secrets of Health Transformation, I outline a case of a woman who used ear acupuncture or auricular acupuncture to help herself stop smoking.

How long do treatments take?

The length and number of treatments varies from doctor to doctor, with the average being only 30 minutes per treatment, once a week for 10 weeks.

And how long before I start feeling better?

Some people feel better right after the first treatment.  Others need a few treatments before they notice a difference.

Acupuncture promotes your optimal health by using gentle and non-harmful treatments.  It recognizes the healing power of nature within your body and taps into that wisdom.

It seeks to identify and treat the disease causes that are preventing you from feeling your best physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Acupuncture treats you as a whole person.

You become empowered to take responsibility for your health.

Best of all, acupuncture is a relaxing, rejuvenating healthy escape from your busy and stressful life!  Call the office today at 480-993-8249 to start your weekly summer vacation!

To Your Optimal Health,
