With the warmer weather, anticipation is high for the final countdown to the end of school. If you are a kid, it is the final stretch to summer freedom. As a parent, well, it usually comes with mixed feelings: happy to see that your child has achieve another academic year and in the same moment feeling overwhelmed in how to entertain you offspring during the day when you use to have time for yourself to accomplish your routines and tasks.
With kids under foot, sometimes the happy stress can change quickly into frazzled stress especially when you hear the words "I'm bored!" from one of your kids. As you look at our list of things to do for the day, you quickly realize bored is a made up word that children use to torture adults.
Do not fear...happy dots are here! Many parents love to come in an have auricular therapy done, especially during the summer months. They find they have a much more pleasant experience with their kids being home all day. With a happy mom with happy dots to shave off the top level of stress during the summer, life is much better!
Each morning, we wake up to a new day. We may have plans. We may decide to be spontaneous. The fact is, in our entire life, no two days will be the same - no matter how hard we try.
With this in mind, our bodies try to help us experience joy throughout the day, even if it isn't exactly how we planned it.
This is usually how it goes within the mind:
See the pattern. Pretty much anything we do, the brain wants to reward us so we can be happy (or happier). For some people, they will turn to an outside source thinking it will reward them, like alcohol, drugs, nicotine or even food.
When an addiction is addressed and stopped (like drugs abuse for example), some people will turn to another "Reward" like nicotine. For someone getting off nicotine, they may turn to food.
To stop this cycle, the dopamine pathways need to be reset. This can be done with auricular therapy. By stimulating the nerve endings in the ear, the body realizes the reward center is already satisfied by releasing its' own chemicals and wont be looking elsewhere to find a reward.
Our body and emotions sometimes like to play war with each other. Take eating for example. If we go on a "diet" with our perfect meal plan, whether for health or losing weight, as soon as we are done eating, we want more.
How is this possible when we already ate a fair size portion and our stomach is full of food? It is usually our need for more seratonin.
Serotonin is our mood regulator. It helps you feel more emotionally stable, less anxious and more tranquil. With Auricular Therapy, it helps the body keep a steady supply of serotonin so when you decide to create a new path in your life, like going on a diet, you won't feel as if you are drastically changing and your serotonin will be happy!
In our modern society, we seem to be always on the go. Even when we have time to "relax" we find our minds going over our daily to do list or inventory of all the things we should be doing but we haven't gotten around to even starting.
It seems as if our mind has a mind of its' own. Even when sleep is desired, the chatter in the head is still buzzing around. Wish you could relax your world...the natural way? Now you can. With the help of Auricular Therapy, it helps the body to balance out the noise and sort out what is important for that moment. It takes worry and stress and sets it aside so you can be in a total relaxed state. And most of all, enjoy the relaxation your body deserves.
Are stress, pain, injury, addictions, cravings, or something else "writing your story" of life? Are you ready to have the "pen" back in your own hand?
It seems like when cravings and habits overtake you, they begin to be what identifies you: shopaholic, chocoholic , nail biter, smoker, drug addict, but are these who you really are?
Many people want to kick the habits and cravings, yet they find the physical draw to these outside sources sometimes too much to overcome. It's as the addiction or habit is pulling them in and controlling their "pen" in writing their own story.
Auricular Therapy has helped thousands take their "pen" back so these habits and cravings no longer run their life. Let us help you!
We have helped many people transition from getting off drugs, alcohol and nicotine...ok, cookies, too. Happy Dots are a great tool to help with the physical withdrawals that are usually associated with deciding to take control over these destructive habits.
Many times when someone is getting off a strong drug with Happy Dots, they will comment that they feel like they are having a "high" while getting the auricular therapy done but without the brain cloud. The body releases its own feel good chemicals producing a natural "High".
Auricular Therapy helps with the physical aspect of a withdrawal. It is a good compliment to counseling and addiction recovery programs. We have been working with Cold Creek Wellness Center in helping people become free from addictions and bringing balance back to the things they love!
When someone hears the word STRESS, it is usually associated with the word "BAD". Yet, many clients I encounter everyday do not suffer from bad stress, but from "BUSY" stress. Their days are filled with so many good things that it becomes very stressful trying to accomplish everything on their to do list.
They find themselves not being able to concentrate on the simplest things. Even though they are accomplishing much, they frantically go from task to task mentally worn out from anxiety and stress. We find out they aren't stressed...they're frazzled!
Auricular Therapy helps calm the body and mind allowing focus to return to what is really important.
Here in the Rocky Mountains we are not only surrounded by the beauty of the majestic mountains but also by the many college and university campuses which bring a wide variety of students from all over the world.
No matter where they come from, there is one common thread that is shared among students... the dreaded anxiety associated with test taking.
For many students, handling anxiety while test taking can be the difference between passing or failing the class. Even if the information has been studied extensively, the stress in taking the test can override all that hard work.
Fortunately, many have found relief with Auricular Therapy (Happy Dots.) By using the body's natural ability to create its own Serotonin, Dopamine, and Endorphins, the student is now able to concentrate on what is really important instead of the anxiety.
They will come in a day or two before their test. They find that their test taking experience is much better.
There are many products on the market today intended to make nail biting, thumb sucking or picking at the lip unpleasant with bitter tasting creams, lotions and polish. What if you could train the body to no longer have mouth cravings naturally instead of tricking it?
Auricular Therapy address the issue at the core. It retrains the body to release its' own serotonin, Dopamine, and Endorphins instead of looking for an outside source to make it happy.
Many people who chew tobacco also find great success in Auricular Therapy because the mouth craving issue is addressed.
Are there times when you're so consumed with a stressful situation that you wished you could tune it out for awhile so you could concentrate on other things... besides the stress and anxiety? It seems no matter how hard you try, stress and anxiety overpower you.
For many years, Auricular Therapy has been used to help retrain the body to handle stress and anxiety. Many people have referred to the metal dots used in this procedure as "HAPPY DOTS".
Recently, we had one of our client change the name to "Rhett Butler Dots". I was confused at the name change until he explained, "When I have my Happy Dots in, I feel like Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind...frankly my dear, I don't give a damn about my stress." He went on to explain that the stress that was consuming him day after day was now manageable. The stress was still there but, it wasn't the focus of his life. His body could handle the stress. He was now in control because - "after all tomorrow is another day".
