Surrender – Accepting what is
I teach this technique and many more in my workshops for creating your reality and awakening your inner healer. If you are struggling with your thoughts and feelings then read on for one of my favourite simple tools to help you get into the present moment and transform the negative feelings.

Dr Les fehmi, PhD, in his book The Open Focus Bain, shares how when he finally gave up and deeply accepted his failure (he had many unsuccessful attempts of moving his brainwaves into Alpha known for their detached relaxation and healing potential), the EEG registered high-amplitude production.

With the busiest season of the year just around the corner, the number of patients arriving at the clinic exhausted and frazzled has increased exponentially: in bed late, up early, frantically meal/gift planning during your breaks at work. If this sounds like you, it may be time to revisit your acupuncturist for some much needed, rejuvenating sleep.
No amount of topical or external treatments can maintain long lasting results if skin isn’t being supported by whole body health from the inside out.
