Harmony and Balance Goals for 2019
How is the year going so far?
New resolutions (or same ones from last year?)
New exercise routines
Have you thought about setting goals for Harmony and Balance this year?
Harmony and balance connect your physical, mental, and spiritual health to create a whole you.
Discomfort in any form represents and out-of-balance state that can manifest in pain, stress, illness, or chronic conditions. Many times it's easy to identify symptoms - pain can be painfully obvious. With conditions such as stress, anxiety and depression - the symptoms can be easy to miss, and misinterpret.
My 2019 goal is to help you with your goals for harmony and balance using a holistic approach that unlocks the body's ability to heal itself and strengthen the mind. Live your best life this year!
NatureMed Acupuncture was formed by Oleg Rivkin, who has experience in both Western and Eastern treatments. It is through this lens he concluded that when possible, pharmaceutical-free treatment has the best curative powers for most of the pain and symptoms people express.
Oleg has worked in holistic healing for over 20 years, much of that time in hospital and clinical environments, alongside physicians and physical therapists. In his own practice, Oleg is experienced in pain management, headaches and migraines, stress and anxiety, neck and back pain, cardiovascular conditions, cancer care, athletic performance and recovery, post-surgical recovery, men’s health, and women’s reproductive health.
Oleg holds a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, along with a B.S. in Nutrition from the same institution.
