Self-care has become a trendy buzzword in the post-Covid era but the benefits to practicing regular self-care are undeniable. But first, let’s talk about what self-care is and what it isn’t. Self-care is taking steps to address your physical and emotional health needs to the best of your ability. Self-care is not being selfish or self-indulgent.
And nobody knows the importance of self-care better than moms. Yet moms are usually the first to put themselves at the bottom of the list in terms of self-care. But we don’t all have to be moms to have an overwhelming to-do list that depletes us mentally and physically. Just like a healthy diet and regular exercise, self-care is the next key to great physical and mental health.
The best part about self-care is that it includes a variety of activities that can range from exercise, yoga, hiking in nature, or bike riding, to quieter outlets like reading, meditation, prayer, or a warm bath. It really is up to you to determine what outlet is best for you. continue reading »

“The Top 10 Reasons to Try Acupuncture”
I had a great first visit today. Excellent service, I feel less stressed, and pain lightened up. Looking forward to my next visit.
J.V., Dayton, WA.
Two years ago I took a tumble off a horse and landed on my back.
For the first week after the accident, I could not walk upright and my entire back was in pain due to injury and sore muscles. Spasms and shooting pain would hit me any time of the day or night. Ice, heat and pain relievers were not improving my situation at all.
I finally sought treatment from Denise. For a week she did acupuncture,
Some could call me a bit of a skeptic and acupuncture was at the top of my list – enter Denise!
I have become so dis-enchanted with traditional methods to my issues and the time I’ve spent with Denise has rocked my world!!! Acupuncture is helping me cope with my stress, the pain in my knee is subsiding and my lifelong abdominal issues are getting some much needed attention.
I’ve had acupuncture from a number of therapists over the years and Denise ranks as one of the best. She has treated me for headaches, neck pain and constipation. All my symptoms have shown great improvement! I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I’ve known Denise for a few years now and have received acupuncture treatment from her for lower back pain and stress. It gave me instant relief. Denise is great at what she does and has been a wonderful resource for me to have.

I went to get acupuncture from Denise Lane for two problems, gout and stress. I am doing well enough that I have not had to return for follow up treatments for three months. She is very caring and straight forward.
