There's a quirky little secret about the business name for my practice.
The concept of Lift Wellness was born from a commitment to helping the community around me - **Surprise, surprise*** Lifting up those around me and by proxy, those in their lives. THIS fuels my dedication to excellence in my practice.
HOWEVER! You might be asking about the funky photo for this post. That, dear community, is a photo of your friendly local acupuncturist doing what she loves most, AND the quirky secret behind Lift Wellness.
It’s called Paragliding…
or Flying like a bird.
This is what sets my soul alight. Lift is your best friend up there in the sky and it’s what keeps the view absolutely breathtaking. It’s a sport so out of the ordinary that it forces you out of the day-to-day grind, into the moment.
Every day I aim to bring that joy of being fully alive and in the moment to share with the people who walk in my door. – It’s the quirky, funny secret behind the name that I give to you.
