...Thoughts on how we can recover from 2 years of pandemic
It has been a terribly difficult two years: new routines, couped up at home, sometimes isolated from everyone, not to mention feeling terribly sick if you caught the COVID virus. And there has been loss of loved ones or the threat of losing loved ones. Have you considered the toll these stresses have had on your body? Or what about the toll on your resilience? I have heard people say they are feeling frozen, immobile, yes, stuck. In acupuncture language, we call that stagnation. What does stagnation feel like for you?
The ancients knew even then that stagnation, yes, STRESS, slows the body's healing processes. And they knew that the way you handle symptoms affects your full RECOVERY. CLICK HERE to see a list of the symptoms people have been experiencing that acupuncture is known to help. A long list of symptoms makes us think of treating those symptoms alone. Like an aspirin for a muscle spasm. Holistic therapies pull the many symptoms you're experiencing into a whole picture that acts as a guide to direct the where, what and how of a treatment. The parts of your body, including the physical, mental and emotional aspects, all work together. So must treatment if it is to bring relief and increase your well-being. That is what acupuncture is especially good at.
