Our desire at Aligned Family WELLNESS, is to guide and assist our patients into a lifestyle that promotes true health. If you follow us on instagram @drkimsheppard or @alignedfamilywellnesschiro you will see that we have begun to focus on the health and wellness part of our practice. Obviously adjusting our patients and providing excellent chiro and acupuncture care is a large part of what we do, but we also educate our patients and guide them into wellness using nutrition and fitness. 
Here are some lifestyle habits we encourage our patients to practice:
  • Move your body, aim for 6k steps a day and work your way up to 10k. This is good for your mental health and your physical health.
  • One of the most important things you can do is to build strength and gain lean muscle mass. Aim for 3 strength training sessions per week, 30-45 minutes is all you need to burn fat, increase lean muscle and burn calories.
  • Hydraytion is KEY. Aim for 1/2 your body weight in oz of water per day, take your water bottle with you every where you go. Fill it up a few times through out the day and this will drastically improve sleep, energy levels and increase your mental capacity. 

These are just a few things you can implement into your daily lifestyle to improve your wellness.
