As the New Year approaches, we - once again - take time to reflect on what changes we can make to improve our lives. We examine our behaviors and habits of the previous year to determine where we can make a shift. Often we resolve to exercise more, eat better, stress less, or quit some habit.
Unfortunately, we tend to take on too many expectations for the New Year and try to make too many dramatic shifts in our behavior.
Lets face it - Life Happens - and all those resolutions that we made become too heavy to maintain.
So rather than taking on a million things that you want to change about yourself, why not start with one subtle little shift. Yep... just one.
You'll be surprised that the most subtle shifts in behavior are easier to manage/maintain and the most profound.
Acupuncture is all about creating subtle little shifts in the body, in order to insight profound systemic effects. Each needle awakens the acupuncture point with a gentle 'hello' - and with each point, the body is given an opportunity to become more aware of itself.
(Self)Awareness = Change
If you are wanting to make some subtle but profound shifts in 2012, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine may be the very thing you need to "stick" to those resolutions.
