Having a New Year’s resolution can be a helpful tool for self-improvement, but it can also end up being super stressful. 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 2022 by inspiring us with the mantra “New Year, New You!” as if we need to shed our flawed 2021-selves and transform into some brand-spankin’ new 2022 version. Well, we don’t think you need a new version of yourself. We like the way you are, right now.
This year, we’re focusing less on 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 an overall self-care routine going into 2022:
For the person looking for peaceful moments amongst the hustle & bustle:
This could really be as simple as taking some time to go on a walk for that alone time. Sneaking away to Yinova could also act as that peaceful moment. You can also take us on the go for a gentle respite in your home with our At Home Kit! Add to that a specifically tailored herbal formula and we can help you keep that peaceful feeling going wherever you are.

For the person who 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 mean that the reason behind it is something scary, either! It just means you may need to approach the why a little differently. Acupuncture and East Asian 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.
For the person who is thinking about starting a family:
Both acupuncture and East Asian medicine have been used for centuries to improve fertility. In fact, more and more scientific studies are being conducted, proving its effectiveness both on its own and in conjunction with Western medicine. If you’re looking for a good place to start, why not take our quiz to find out your Fertility Type or learn more about our Virtual Fertility Coaching?
