Having a New Year’s resolution can be a helpful tool for self improvement … but it can also end up being super stressful, maybe even unnecessarily so. Hear me out! Yes, challenging yourself towards self-improvement can be a good thing, but with so many suggestions flying around, the “thing” that you need to improve on can start to get a bit murky.
It seems as if everywhere we look people are gearing up for 2019 by inspiring us with the mantra “New Year, New You!” as if we need to shed our ostensibly flawed selves and transform into some brand spankin’ new version. Well, guess what? We don’t think you need a new version of yourself, we like the way you are, right now.
This year we think our focus should be less about reinventing ourselves and more on maintaining a happy level of self-care and love. However that manifests for you, we would love to be there for you. Here are some ways you can combine acupuncture, herbs, or massage with with an overall self care routine going into 2019:

For the person who is always tired and just wants to feel rested:
The reason for your fatigue might not be as simple as “you’re not getting enough sleep.” Now, that doesn’t meant that the reason behind it is something scary, either! It just means you may need to approach the why a little differently. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine look at the body as a whole, and by doing so can pinpoint exactly why your body isn’t getting the rest it needs.
