Holidays are a joyous time of year, but they can also be incredibly stressful. In fact, most individuals when asked are quick to vent about the holiday season, rather than being able to embrace all that is good. It’s a wonder that Hanukah and Christmas are even celebrated at all! Thankfully, there’s a way to de-stress and relax a little more this year: Through chiropractic care at Bayview Finch Chiropractic Clinic’s North York office.
Chiropractic care assists people in dealing with their stress (whether around the holidays or not) in a number of ways, including:
• Realigning the spine and putting the body back into perfect posture. When we’re stressed out, we tend to tense up our shoulders, back and neck. Chiropractors help manipulate our joints so that tension is naturally alleviated.
• Giving the patient some “down time”. Honestly, just being in the care of a chiropractor can give any person the feeling that they can finally “let go”. It may feel like the quietest moments of their week, and that will definitely count for something!
• Helping the body’s immunity system rev back up. We all get depleted during the holidays, and the body’s immunity system can take a royal beating. To offset all the issues inherent in having poor immunity to colds, flus and other “bugs”, chiropractors actively choose to enable the body to be able to fend for itself more efficiently.
• Taking away barriers to sleeplessness. Losing sleep because the holidays are encroaching? That’s a big concern. Sleep deprivation negatively affects the body, and can only lead to unwanted consequences. Everything from forgetfulness to depression can be traced back to loss of restful slumber. Chiropractic care, when performed on a regular basis, can push the body back into a normal sleep cycle.
The next time you say this December: “I’m not sure I can handle these holidays again”, make it a point to pick up the telephone and schedule an appointment at Bayview Finch Chiropractic Clinic. You may just discover the best-kept secret to making every holiday a little happier.
