We're Honouring Mum :)
International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day is in March!
This month we wanted to honour women’s health, especially to the ones who gave us life! The female anatomy and biology are a miracle that can withstand extreme changes, remarkable development, and endurance and resilience beyond the most accomplished champions! This makes it even more important for women to care for your spine, body, and health through every stage and age.
Here are a few important reminders that we know will keep you on track:
Listen to Your Intuition – Women have a natural sixth sense that can tune in to more than what is obvious to the normal senses. It is what makes them exceptional at caretaking and knowing just the right thing to do at just the right moment! We’ve all experienced our mums being “psychic” when we were trying to hide something! And we’ve all experienced our mums also knowing when to comfort us when we need it most! You don’t have to be a mum to have that “sense” – it's part of a woman’s DNA, so embrace it!
Listen to Your Body – A woman’s body speaks to her all the time. She has a monthly biological clock but also a magnificent internal guide that knows things beyond words. Learn to articulate that knowing into words so that you can ask questions, educate yourself, and query professionals along the way on your self-care journey. Women often forget to care for themselves and can easily ignore their own needs. This month, engage in the practice of listening to your body and tending to its needs just as you would your child, a parent, or a best friend. You are so worthy!
Listen to Your Heart – Your heart center is where your emotions live, and women have a savvy way with feelings. At the same time, self-doubt can creep in and when that happens, listening to others can overtake listening to one’s own heart. This is where a stack of hopes, dreams, and wishes can become dusty like the bookshelf of old books that you never look at anymore. This month, listen to your heart. It really does always know. And it’s never too late to dust off your desires and go after them once and for all!
Thank you to all the mothers, grandmothers, and mothers to be out there! We appreciate you!
And to all the incredible women that come through our practice every single day – We see you, hear you, and are always rooting for you!
Keep your spine aligned,
Dr. Michael and Amber
