What in the world could acupuncture have to do with vacation? Well, did you know that your body heals better when you are on vacation. Did you ever notice that you sleep better when you are on vacation. This is because, in general, you are removed from the stresses of everyday life. With fewer stress hormones and your body being in a more restful state, healing is faster and easier. Too often though, our vacations tend to be running from one place to the next, trying to cram in as many memories as possible and we often do not get the rest that we need so badly. The other part of the equation is that we get a week or two here and there and this is simply not enough time for your body to properly heal and regenerate. Pain syndromes, immune problems, infertility and even more serious disease processes can be the unfortunate end result. So what can you do to eliminate these problems. Give yourself a little vacation on a regular basis!
Listen, you take care of your car, you take care of your home, you take care of your kids, you are responsible at work. Why not take care of yourself! What is more important than your health and wellbeing. Quite simply nothing, but our culture does not lend itself to self-care. We are pushed and pressured in to doing more, being more independent and increasingly isolated. Acupuncture and other self-care modalities can be the perfect solution for things like pain syndromes, insomnia, infertility and allows the body to fight off even more serious problems. This is because acupuncture down regulates the central nervous system and systemically reduces stress related hormones. This puts your body in a “vacation” mode and allows the healing and regeneration process to take place.
If you suffer from pain, insomnia or the effects of high stress, your body is trying to tell you something. Listen and take care of the most important thing in your life, you!
