Welcome 2020 Message: Wishing you The Best Ever Year Ahead

In 2020 there is no way of going back to not knowing. 

The human consciousness has reached a sufficient level not to choose pain and suffering.  As we are entering a new decade of more knowledge, wisdom, and light, we have faith and trust that regardless of how the external world is struggling with mess and chaos, we are on the right path. 

More discoveries, more magic, and more wonderment are ahead of us.  More clarity in our intentions, more creativity and joy are in store for us.  We wish you a blissful and healthy New Year and a fantastic decade of unbelievable changes.

The elimination diet:

Remove anger, regret, resentment, guilt, blame, and worry.

Then watch your health and life, improve

How to Most Effectively Manage your Insurance Benefits?

If your employee benefits are renewed early this year, it is a good idea to explore all available options to you.  You can access your online account with your insurance provider, and check under paramedical benefits which treatment modalities are covered under your plan.  The following types of practitioners are frequently covered:

Massage Therapist

Acupuncturist

Chiropractor

Osteopath

Naturopath

Schedule your appointments in advance to book the times you need and to avoid the rush at the end of the year. If you wish to have as many treatments as possible within your insurance coverage, you can consider our discounted treatment packages that we offer for certain modalities.  For more details check with our front desk assistants.

 

How to Take Advantage of Our Online Booking and Instant Pay System?

Thanks to our new online booking system, you can bypass line ups at the front desk.

In addition to having the convenience of booking and modifying your appointments, you can also take care of your payments.  Whenever you need to pay a co-payment for your insurance claim, want to buy a package or gift card or simply want to pay the treatment fee, we can charge your credit card on file and email you the receipt.

How to Register:

You can register your credit card information if the system is asking you to do so when booking your appointment. If not, you can ask our front desk assistant to help you over the phone or in person.

How do you store my credit card information?

We do not store your credit card information in our database — neither the Jane Appointment Scheduling System where you input your credit card information. The Jane system uses the Stripe in a backend to process payments. Stripe, as you probably heard of, is a widely known PCI Complaint online payment processing company, used by major brands such as Amazon, Expedia, Uber, and Nasdaq.

Goals for the January Pressure Cooker

Goals for the January Pressure Cooker

By Dr. Jenny Jun, ND

While we are as much the author of our lives in May or November, there is something about January that lights the grill of our motivation.

In sessions with clients, we often discuss the relationship with self and what it means to live in an “inside out” world—your external world as a reflection of your internal one. Realizing this can disarm blame towards others and encourage us to reframe our reality in a way that puts us in charge. For example, if you’re finding yourself in repetitive and unpleasant situations, perhaps it’s time to consider that it isn’t so much that “people suck” but that you are placing yourself in these familiar situations out of an unaddressed, chronic self-appraisal.

We put pressure on ourselves to exercise and lose weight when we haven’t reliably done so for years or take on a Keto diet after having had muffins for lunch. These aspirations can only be short-lived and exacerbate self-deprecating conclusions of failure.So here’s my advice:

do something REALLY SMALL, but do it consistently.

The key is consistency. It doesn’t matter how magnanimous the goal is, but to do one thing, e.g. taking ONE flight of stairs, daily, over the course of an entire year, will develop stability and calm where it never existed before. Consistency begets more consistency.

No need to push yourself to drink 3L of water per day when your previous water intake hasn’t been much more than catching snowflakes with your tongue. Nourish yourself with a small cup of liquid as soon as you feel the thirst signal turn on.

No need to go vegan or Keto. Eat how you normally do, just be sure that you fill a quota of one full-serving of leafy green vegetables daily. Take the stairs all the way to your 20th-floor apartment once, every Sunday. Do 5 push-ups daily, for a year. It can be anything but setting yourself up for disappointment. Set yourself up for reality in 2020.

Start small and let it build naturally. Add ONE small routine to your current (and unique) operation this year and master it. Remember: If there was only one way, there would only be one person.

Slainte.
