The Holiday season is here! Although it is filled with happy things such as family, friends, and food, this time of the year can be very stressful for the mind and body. Gift buying, family gatherings, cooking, and parties can add additional strain; luckily acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help to minimize these stress-ridden symptoms.
Herbal therapy is very important in traditional Chinese medicine as it helps to heal and regulate unhealthy body patterns that arise in symptoms and complaints. The purpose of Chinese herbal therapy is to help you find balance in your body and strengthen your body’s resistance to disease. Holiday time can be filled with stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, and pressure. Herbs can be used to relax the body and aid in making these negative emotions and feelings lessen and go away.
Benefits of Chinese Herbs:
Decrease cold/flu symptoms
Improve your breathing
Improve your sleep
Increase your energy
Improve menopausal symptoms
Help regulate menstrual cycles
The holiday season is a time filled with lots of food. It’s always fine to treat yourself, but it’s also important not to stray from your current progress and routine. This season is a time where overeating is common. Instead of overeating…try some herbs! Combinations of herbs also help to minimize appetite and assist in weight loss. This time of celebration doesn’t mean to forget about everything you’re told and steer away from the lifestyle you’ve been working on. Keep working out, keep having a positive mindset, and enjoy the company of family and friends. Have a very happy holiday season and come check us out at 44 Sycamore Ave, Little Silver, NJ 07739!!!
