As seen in
You hold yourself to high standards, and tend to put everyone else’s needs first.
You look like you’ve got it all figured out, but inside it doesn’t feel that way.
- Feeling worried, anxious, or depressed
- Having difficulty sleeping
- Struggling to lose weight
- Relying on caffeine and sugar to rev up and alcohol to wind down
- Snapping at your partner or kids more than they deserve
- Wanting to numb out at the end of the day because you’re just DONE
Worst of all, because you hold yourself to such high standards, you beat yourself up for not being able to do it all.
You want to feel like your life is meaningful, sustainable, and most importantly yours.
You want to work with someone who will see you as a whole person, who will listen with compassion, and who will strategize with you on how to get unstuck.
You’ve come to the right place.
I’m Brodie Welch, Holistic Self-Care Strategist and Licensed Acupuncturist.
I founded Life in Balance Acupuncture in Corvallis, Oregon in 2003. I love helping people in pain leave without it. Some of my favorite things to treat include back pain, neck pain, chronic stress-related issues, because a handful of visits can make a massive difference.
My goal is to help empower you to create vibrant health and live into your extraordinary potential. I draw on my deep knowledge of Chinese Medicine and yoga as ancient systems of holistic health and personal evolution, blended with functional medicine, neuroscience, habit change science.
I believe that too many people — women especially –don’t believe they have the right to take care of themselves.
It’s not your fault – after all, we live in a country where women have to work harder to earn the same salary and promotions as the guys sitting next to us. We tend to shoulder more than our share of caring for kids, aging parents, as well as the daily household responsibilities.
It’s hard to be superwoman AND have time for yourself – without feeling guilty.
But what I’ve found in over 19 years of clinical practice is that when you give yourself permission to be at the top of your own to-do list, it’s the most powerful thing you can do for your health, your productivity, and the people you love.
