Giving Thanks On Remembrance Day

As a gesture of appreciation for all those who have, or are currently serving in our armed forces, hemma would like to offer a free acupuncture session and/or a free yoga class to all veterans and current active duty personnel on Remembrance Day. Thank you for all you have given.


How’s Your Sleep?

This is one of the first questions I ask a new patient when they come into the clinic. So many of our health issues either originate from, or are made worse by, poor sleep. Insomnia, or difficulty sleeping can be caused by many things: to much on your mind, lack of exercise, shift work, etc. Acupuncture can help to regulate sleeping patterns and increase your chances of getting a good nights sleep. Here is an  article I recently came across that helps to explain why rest is so important — it helps to clear the head! Even if you do sleep well, you will still benefit from an occasional “Acu-Nap” in one of our comfy lazy-boy recliner chairs. You deserve a rest!
