In the middle of the July 4th chaos in North Conway, NH, six children found an opportunity to “get zen” and meditate. It stopped a few people and of course, the picture had to be taken. Now, if you knew these children, they are all active and full of personality! When I saw this picture, not only did I see a great opportunity to chuckle to myself but I also saw how a few of them really looked calm.
I know in this crazy world of negativity and violence, it is imperative that as parents we teach our children what is right and wrong, what is acceptable and unacc...
As some of you may or may not know, I am a triathlete. And as a triathlete, I am always looking for ways for my body to perform better as I swim, bike and run. I loved falling upon this article in the recent USAT newsletter! Thank you to Sandy Bikus for writing such a fabulous positive viewpoint on the amazing impact acupuncture can do for triathletes as well as athletes of any interest!
Today, in my business group, my fellow health and wellness colleagues and I did a group weekly presentation on what we each could contribute to one man’s life. It was profound to listen to everyone’s approach to how each individual practitioner/business could affect our fictional character’s life in so many different ways.
This got me thinking about the importance of working with a well versed, experienced team of health practitioners/businesses. We can’t do it alone but by working together, we could accomplish so much more...

Acupuncture (and massage): Let’s Get To The Point!!!
It has come so abundantly clear to me recently how important it is to invest time in planning ahead for our health and well being as we age. We will spend hours and much money securing our financial futures yet we push through colds/flus, ignore the little pain in our knee until we can’t ignore it any longer, or make unwise choices with our diet and level of exercise. These actions are not meant to help us secure a long term future of good health.
A good friend of mine even said to me today that when she gets sick, she can’t afford to stop...
Have you ever gone on a trip and before you did, you gathered all the maps and talked to people who had gone before, trying to get all the information you could so you could have the best trip experience? You find yourself pouring over websites full of information, talking to the AAA travel advisor, and planning out the daily events. I know I did exactly this when we were planning our first Disney trip...
When I was in acupuncture graduate school, my Practice Management professor taught us the power of word-of-mouth networking. Print advertising really doesn’t work for acupuncturists. I mean, let’s think about it. Would you go to an acupuncturist you saw an ad for in the paper or an acupuncturist who was recommended to you by a friend or colleague? Exactly. My professor introduced us to the Chamber of Commerce and BNI, Business Network International. When I graduated, I looked into becoming members of both organizations.

The only thing constant is change.
Yet it is the one thing we fight tooth and nail against, causing us more strife than is necessary. I have seen more clients come in for treatments lately to address exactly this.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, emotionally we begin to overworry, taxing our Spleen and it’s capability to transform food and transport the pure Qi to the Lungs and the Kidneys. When this occurs, it all gets backed up and is one of the reasons why human beings start to gain weight around their midsection...
