I endured poor sleep for years.
I slept poorly because I stayed up too late; because I was sleeping lightly, on mama-alert for the sounds of my babies; because I went to bed stressed; because I had to wake up too early...
But still, I could have been much more well-rested.
We can get to a point where we believe it's normal to feel tired all the time.
Is this familiar? "How are you?" "Good... Tired, but good."
Or how about, "I'm so tired - why can't I just fall asleep?"
Or, "I just slept for 9 hours. Why am I still tired?"
The truth is, it's possible to get deep, restful sleep, even when the conditions aren't ideal. Our bodies are made to
- clear stagnation
- fall asleep easily
- stay asleep
- and wake up restored.
If we remove the blockages and support healthy function, we sleep so much better.
Once I started prioritizing restorative sleep, everything changed for me.
My mood, my physical health, my mental clarity, my capacity to take care of my family and serve my patients.
I always prioritize healthy sleep for my patients.
Poor sleep -- as you well know if you don't sleep well -- makes everything harder.
And good sleep helps everything.
Hi, I'm Leilani.
and I would love to help you sleep better. Giving you a natural, empowering tool to find relief and stay well - that's my thing.
I'm a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in the high mountain desert of southern Utah. Every day, I help people with my own hands (and needles), AND by teaching them to support their own well-being. I help people understand how to heal through food, practice therapeutic exercise, dive deep into their dreams, and use self-massage with acupressure.
As an acupuncturist, I can (and frequently do) put needles in myself. But even for me, acupressure is much more straightforward to work into my day.
I can do it for 1 minute, or 20 minutes.
All I need is my hands.
I turn to acupressure every day, whether to ease a headache, relieve allergy symptoms, or prepare for restful sleep.
When I'm not doing acupuncture or acupressure on myself or someone else, I'm usually playing music, working on my homestead-in-process, exploring the wilderness, or living some other part of the wild and wonderful thing called motherhood.
