The Original Christmas Gifts
BeFit SRQ has two of the original Christmas gifts right here in the studio. Fill your home with the remarkable aroma of doTERRA Frankincense oil and doTERRA Myrrh oil during the holiday season. Frankincense promotes feelings of peace and overall wellness, and Myrrh has powerful cleansing properties and supports well-being and emotional balance. Get one of each for yourself and for a friend – they make a special gift (the Three Wise Men agree!).
Need More Energy? Who Doesn’t?!
Need an energy boost this holiday season? Consider a B12 injection. This month, if you schedule a regular acupuncture treatment with Dr. Hsin Hsin Hu, you’ll get a free B12 injection. And if you’re experiencing just a little too much holiday cheer, you may want to try one of her alcohol detox Chinese herbs as well.
Dr. Hu is an experienced, Florida-licensed acupuncture physician. Call 941-587-6311 to schedule an appointment.
