As Halloween draws near, I love watching my children get excited about their costumes and dream of the bags of candy they will collect soon. My business group had a “scary” theme this morning and invited us to dress up in our costumes to add to the festivities! I decided to pull out of storage an old favorite of mine from many years ago, my adult sized Tigger costume. Now, for those of you who know me, I have an outgoing personality that fits the Tigger persona...
I love the Olympics! Every four years, I get to watch the world come together and compete in sporting events I am familiar with and some I didn’t even know existed. The spirit of competition is alive and exhilarating to watch! And then to see the bruised circles from cupping on the USA male gymnasts and swimmers had me jumping for joy!
You see, as an acupuncturist-herbalist, part of our extensive training included adjunctive techniques such as cupping...
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!

Acupuncture (and massage): Let’s Get To The Point!!!
Though there is a long list of drugs to handle stress, the list of their side effects is equally long. So everyone is on the look out for natural stress relief techniques which are very effective and at the same time don’t have many side effects. Herbal treatments usually have a significant chunk of followers. Herbs are natural stress relievers with little or no side effects and can be used as a single herb or combination product in stress management therapy...
I went to an advance networking training this past Monday and one of the presenters brought up a fabulous point: if she was to try to mention acupuncture to her friends, her friends would retort with “I don’t like needles” or “Oh the needles must hurt”. She stated, “Please don’t make me have the awkward conversation…tell me the answers so I can refer you the clients!”
AHA! The awkwardness when discussing acupuncture is very real! We’ve all heard the comments so let’s break some of them down and create better answers so acupuncture becomes an understood and via...
I get asked all the time what are the best food to eat during the summer? Healthy eating tips for the summer are a little tricky but my main mantra is “Eat With The Season”!

But since you’re outside exercising and working in the garden, you build up an appetite...
Recently I was asked a fantastic question: “What is the most common condition you treat?”
My answer was pain. Pain is usually what may bring most clients in the door. neck pain, Low back pain, headache pain, digestive issues, allergy pain…if you can name it’s whereabouts and it causes disruption in your everyday life, it’s pain. But most of the time, the pain is a sign that something more serious is going on...
