New Year, Same You

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 2020 by inspiring us with the mantra “New Year, New You!” as if we need to shed our flawed 2019-selves and transform into some brand spankin’ new 2020 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 2020:

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. Plus, with a specifically tailored herbal formula, we can help you keep that peaceful feeling going even when you’re not here.

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 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.

For the person who is thinking about starting a family:

Both acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been used for centuries to improve fertility for both men and women. In fact, more and more scientific studies are being conducted, proving its effectiveness both on its own and in conjunction with Western medicine.

For the person who, in 2019, said to themselves “my body always hurts, that’s just how it is” but is now reading this article and is feeling pumped and wants a pain-free 2020:

From endometriosis to migraines; sports injuries to painful menses — both our bodywork and acupuncture team can help manage pain, relieve muscle tension, and soothe damaged nerves.
