What Do We Mean When We Say We’re a “Wellness Practice”?
The word “wellness” has been used to the point of becoming jargon over the past decade or so. It’s hard to find a suitable replacement, though. Many of our participants list overall or general wellness as their chief concern when coming to see us, so we know we’re on...
Morning Sunlight for Better Energy
December’s topic is “where’s my energy?” because during this month we see an uptick in people coming in with complaints of fatigue and exhaustion. The causes of fatigue are as myriad as the number of people who experience it. Today, we’re talking about morning...
