Spring and the Time Change: Taking Care of YOU!

Spring Forward Time Change

Spring is only days away!

As we emerge from our mild Southern California winter we’re ready for the longer, warmer days to come. While the extra hour of sunshine is, of course, something we look forward to, (initially) losing that extra hour of sleep often takes some adjustment.

Our best advice is to be gentle with yourself.

It’s important to ease into the time change by aiming to go to bed a little earlier, and maybe even slowing down a bit on extracurricular activities within the first week to give yourself some time to acclimate. This is easier said than done, though. We know! 

Bottom line is that you need to take care of YOU.

Here are some helpful ways we can offer to help you with the time transition…from the solace of winter to the vibrant days of spring.

Put a Little Extra SPRING in Your Step with Herbal Remedies and Essential Oils

Dr. Sage offers Bach Herbal Remedies at her office to help clients with a number of ailments and issues — be it mental or physical.

Some clients require a blend that is created especially for them (by Dr. Sage), others may prefer to choose a single type of tincture to suit a specific need. Remedies range in spectrum from helping individuals with allergies to aiding others with mental clarity and overcoming emotional challenges.

Unsure which one is right for you? Book an appointment with Dr. Sage and she’ll work with you to create your very own personal blend.

Acupuncture Chiropractic Massage

Whatever your preference, booking a massage, acupuncture or chirosage treatment can help put a little extra spring in your step to celebrate the new season.

Acupuncture, for example, can be extremely helpful for those who suffer from seasonal allergies.

Massage restores blood flow to the body while also helping your muscles and lymphatic system to release stress inducing toxins, among other things.

During the month of March, we’re offering two special treatments to help you feel your best!

Remember to Factor in a Chiropractic Adjustment

We understand that with the time change, spring break, and tax time coming up, your to-do list will be an overwhelming one. So if one of the treatments mentioned above simply isn’t in the cards, we can’t emphasize enough how important it is to make time for a chiropractic adjustment.

During times of high stress, our joints tend to lock up and cause misalignment, which then leads to lack of circulation and blood flow throughout the body. This can (and will) only make things worse. So please make time to help yourself stay at the top of your game, both mentally and physically, with an adjustment, or two.
