Lose weight. Exercise more. Eat healthier. Finish that book. Quit smoking. Stop procrastinating. Travel more. Learn a new language. Sleep better.
It can be intimidating when your list of new year's resolutions is longer than your Christmas card list. And that's before the stress and anxiety of missing one or two gym visits, procrastinating on that work project, or cheating with a cheeseburger, kicks in.
According to the American Psychological Association, however, it is important to remember that the January 1st isn’t meant to serve as the D-Day for massive changes. It is a time for people to reflect on the previous year’s behavior and promise to make lifestyle changes that push them in a positive direction.
“Setting small, attainable goals throughout the year, instead of a singular, overwhelming goal on January 1st can help you reach whatever it is you strive for,” says psychologist Lynn Bufka, PhD. “Remember, it is not the extent of the change that matters, but rather the act of recognizing that lifestyle change is important and working toward it, one step at a time.”
By making your resolutions simpler and more realistic, there is a greater chance that you will keep them throughout the year, incorporating healthy behavior into your everyday life.
Here's to a simpler, realistic, healthier new year...and new you!
In that spirit, we're pleased to announce our New Year's Rejuvenation Specials!
We're kicking off 2017 with a trio of incredible offerings for new patients:
1) Wellness Evaluation ($50...normally $180)
An initial visit with Dr. Sonja and Noel, during which they will perform several tests to give them an idea of what kind of health you're in. The tests include Heart Rate Variability, Nutrition Reflex Testing, Acupressure Stress Elimination Assessment, Body Fat Analysis, and a complete medical history. Included in the NIV is a second appointment where they will provide you the results of your testing and let you know if you're a candidate for the health improvement programs they offer.
2) Acupressure Stress Elimination Evaluation and Treatment ($50...normally $120)
Acupressure Stress Elimination, also known as ASE is a way of cleaning up endocrine disruptors so the body's own hormones have the potential to work normally again. ASE doesn't use hormones or medications as treatment, but is a technique to tape into the endocrine system through neurological reflex points with the intention of bringing communication back into the system.
3) Essential Nutrients Check ($50...normally $120)
ENC is for patients who are well, without symptoms, and who want to know what specific nutrients they need to stay well and prevent future health issues. Includes a full Clinical Nutrition Analysis to make sure there are not hidden weaknesses or deficiencies that have not yet become symptomatic. Includes a summary of findings and recommendations. Includes a follow-up check in 60 days to make certain the recommendations have been effective and whether they are still needed.
**Specials are honored through Jan 31, 2017 and are for new patient services only.**
