Our team at Back to Balance is full of gratitude - now and every day - for all of you! Our clients are what make this work meaningful, and we are so grateful to you for what you bring to our community. Many researchers have found that gratitude is linked to a whole list of health benefits, and thanks to all of you, we are feeling it fully!
Our purpose is to provide a safe haven of drug-free healing and health education to improve the quality and longevity of the lives of people in our community.
It’s that time of year again...time to “spring forward” when we set our clocks ahead an hour. We are springing forward in other ways around, too. We are excited to welcome a new acupuncturist, Valerie Hanna, to the Back to Balance office!
Valerie Hanna is a NCCAOM certified and licensed acupuncturist and a registered nurse. She is also trained in Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET), a drug free, natural solution that utilizes acupuncture, acupressure, and muscle testing to find balance in the body and to deactivate the body's intolerances, sensitivities, and allergies.
Valerie is looking forward to sharing the benefits of NAET and Acupuncture with the patients at Back to Balance. Welcome, Valerie!
Top 10 tips for a healthier Halloween
Make Halloween A Time to Be Active
•Halloween is not just about the treats! Halloween is a great time to enjoy being active. The cool weather that comes along with the fall season is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the outdoors as a family.
•Take advantage of the beautiful foliage and collect orange, red and yellow leaves. Make a decorate wreath or paste leaves on construction paper to decorate the house.
•During October visit a local pumpkin patch and pick your own pumpkins and gourds. Many pumpkin patch locations have other activities such as corn mazes, haunted houses, and hay rides. Pack up some sandwiches and spend the day!
•Enjoy walking instead of driving to nearby stores to shop for Halloween costumes.
•Join your kids and enjoy walking through the neighborhood or malls to look at Halloween decorations.
It is not hard to make Halloween a healthy and fun event with just a bit of planning. Candy is part of Halloween but it does not have to be the only part of Halloween. The autumn season offers so many wonderful opportunities for families to make healthy eating, nutrition and being active a priority. This Halloween, plan for a healthy season that helps your child learn about healthy choices while forming a positive association with nutrition. Have a happy Halloween and watch out for all the witches, ghosts and goblins!
