3 AcuPoints for Anxiety

One of the most wonderful things about being an acupuncturist is the ability to stimulate points on my own body when I need to. If I get a headache, or feel a cold coming on, I can always hop up on my table for a quick tune-up with some needles. Even when I’m not at the office, the magic of acupuncture can still work for me – as long as I know where the points are and what they do, I can press on them and get results. continue reading »

Seven Ways to Set and Achieve Your Goals

No matter what you’re trying to accomplish, setting goals is one way to help you get there. Often, when people have no goals, they lack motivation, focus and direction.  Setting goals also provides a benchmark to determine whether or not you are succeeding. But how do you set goals if you’ve never done so before? Or what if you have set goals in the past, but you didn’t achieve them? Do you just give up and tell yourself that goal setting doesn’t work? That’s one option, but let’s put things into perspective. continue reading »

Self Care Fall is Here!

Hi there! Dr. Katja Magus here from Alpine Acupuncture… You may have seen some ideas for self care online or in a magazine this year, but we recently heard about the concept for self care fall. The idea is that we each take a moment to assess how we are REALLY feeling right now during this autumn season. Do you have aches and pains you’ve been ignoring? Is the stress at work and home piling up? Are you already feeling like you’re fighting off colds and sniffles? Still feeling run down from all the smoke exposure this summer? Are you dreading the upcoming holiday season?

Well- if so, not to worry- Self Care Fall has arrived!

Now is a great time to put some energy into taking care of you. There are countless ideas out there for self care, and it really is a personal thing, which things help you feel great! For me, it means taking an extra breath and really checking in with myself before I commit to participating in an activity or event. Also- making sure there is time for the things that I know “feed” me- my exercise routine, eating salads, getting to bed on time, connecting with friends and family. Beyond that, it may mean scheduling time for a massage, getting in for those physical therapy appointments you’ve been meaning to do, visiting the chiropractor, or our personal favorite- ACUPUNCTURE! (You knew I was going to say that)

If you need some help getting your self care routine (exercise, diet, sleep) planned out, Dr. Katja Magus has time slots available to help you figure out what you need to feel amazing all the way through the holiday season and the rainy season!

Come on in and start today! It is a great time to use those acupuncture insurance visits before the end of the year (if you have 12 visits, that’s 2 per week up until Christmas!) What a great way to take care of YOU!
