A Note To our valued Patients and Staff

To our valued Patients and Staff,
There is no higher priority to our patients and staff than everyone’s safety. Be assured that we are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), government agencies, and internal teams to stay on top of this evolving situation. According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be minimal. However, the World Health Organization has recently declared Coronavirus as a global pandemic.
We want you to feel confident when coming to our office. As a result, we have enhanced some of our cleaning procedures in the interest of our patient’s and employees' health and safety.
Office Cleaning: We clean all equipment and other surfaces after every patient. Typically, we use an EPA approved, hospital-grade disinfectant in the lavatories and on equipment. Now, we are expanding the use of bleach and disinfectant throughout the office, on elements in the front and back office, and in the lavatory.
In addition, we want to remind our patients that if you are scheduled for non-emergency care and you are sick, stay home or take precautions by wearing a mask. We also have masks available for your use. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please have the courtesy to call our office to reschedule your appointment.
Thank you for your patience and trust in Barton Chiropractic Clinic, P.C.. We are prepared to navigate through these challenging circumstances with your safety and confidence in Barton Chiropractic at the forefront of everything we do.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Dr. Diane Barton

Deciding on topics to write about at a time like this, as a chiropractic care specialist, can be a challenge at times. But we here at Barton Chiropractic Clinic believe that times like these are crucial for spreading accurate and valuable information.

Right now, it might seem like the world has been experiencing turmoil after turmoil.  Whether that's actually true or just our perceptions doesn't actually matter, because what really matters is how we handle these events that occur in the world. 

Getting right with ourselves has to do with being healthy, making healthy choices, and finding a way to achieve some sort of inner peace and serenity, even when the world seems to be more than a little out of sorts around us.

Below, Barton Chiropractic gives 3 key mindfulness techniques that will help you stay mentally well during this time.

1.) Build Your Meditation Practice

Taking 10 minutes out of each day to meditate is extremely beneficial for mental health and wellness. It might seem difficult to get "down to nothing" -- as in thinking of nothing. Whenever you catch yourself in a familiar thought pattern, simply stop yourself without judgment and continue with your meditation. As you practice, you will get better at calming down the mind during this time and even throughout the rest of your day.

2.) Start Thinking of Others

Since you're with yourself 24/7, shouldn't you be given a break from that from time to time? Well, the only way to do that is to start investing in and thinking of others, perhaps even more than you think of yourself. By now, you should be kind of boring to yourself anyways, right? Watch your life begin to enrich, open up, and you'll also find that your mind is healthier when you're not indulging in selfishness.

3.) Consider Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment might not seem like a path to mindfulness upon initial glance, but spinal adjustments can seriously improve mental cognition, helping your mind and body fire on all cylinders, which is sure to boost your mindfulness efforts at the same time.
