This can result in a multitude of symptoms, including headaches, muscle tension, pain, insomnia, worry, anxiety, depression and even disease. And according to a recent survey, nearly 77 percent of all Americans regularly experience physical or psychological symptoms caused by stress (American Institute of Stress, May 2017). continue reading »

Five Reasons Acupuncture Helps Reduce Stress

Stress is a word many people are familiar with. The dictionary defines stress in multiple ways, but there is only one that matters when we discuss how stress affects our physical bodies. The definition is this, “stress is a physical, chemical or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension.” And while most people think of stress as being detrimental, it truly does have a function in our bodies. Stress is the body’s way of signaling for help or a break in the routine. If we don’t listen to these signals, we can develop imbalances in our bodies, which can then lead to illnesses. continue reading »

We have moved!

Lotus Spring Acupuncture and Wellness Inc. have moved to a new location.  We will be offering our services on July 1st.  The new address is 36 S.  1100 E. Bldg 5 #C  American Fork, UT 84003.  The phone number is still the same 801-830=7067.

The hours of operation will still be the same as for right now.

We are also offering more services for our patients.  We still offer high quality acupuncture treatment as well as Chinese herbal Therapy.

Kirstine Clark with “Whole Living with Kirstine” will be offering classes on nutrition, fermenting, and kefir starting in September.

Lotus Spring Acupuncture and Wellness Inc. will also be offering EVOX.

 

What People Are Saying About the EVOX

Several subtle changes occurred within me during my first session, the power and impact of which became increasingly clear as time went on. The work and its impact deepened with the second session, and I’ve been noticing positive differences in my moods, energy, and attitude ever since.–R. A.

I can’t believe how much junk does not bother me! This last session sort of knocked something loose. I’m doing so well, it is ridiculous! Mean people & stressful situations have absolutely NO effect on me. Another thing; I used to run from stressful situations and avoid possible conflict at all costs. I would literally start to have a panic attack. Gone! How cool is that! I keep thinking “I’m not freaking out about this or that.” –R. L.

I am so amazed and very pleased with the energetic shifts in my thinking, and noticeable changes in my behavior, which are the result of Perception Reframing sessions. –E.B.

 

We are currently looking to hire professional massage therapist in our new location.  We are also looking for another health professional to offer their service as well.

 

Here is a recent testimonial from a satisfied patient from acupuncture treatments:

 

I went to Dan for pain in my hip and lower back. I saw an improvement after my first treatment and while the pain isn’t totally gone, the improvement is about 85 to 90 percent after 10 sessions and I’m feeling so much better. Dan is professional and caring and I highly recommend Lotus Springs.

 

Here is a video of patients sharing their experience with acupuncture.

We are still offering a free 30 minutes consultation to see if acupuncture can help you!  Please call 801-830-7067 to schedule your first visit.

Healthfully,

 

Dan Clark, Acupuncturist

Ways to Keep Your Memory Sharp

Don’t forget about physical exercise

Believe it or not, when you’re exercising your body, you’re exercising your mind as well. Aerobic exercise gets your blood pumping, which increases the oxygen going to your brain and lowers your risk of disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease that can lead to memory loss. If you can, start with some exercise in the morning. This can clear your head right off the bat to stay focused and alert during the day. Exercises that require coordination are especially helpful for keeping the mind active such as simply throwing a ball back and forth. continue reading »
