Comments Off on Updated Health Guidelines For MWC
With the new guidelines being set in place by the CDC and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we are updating a few of our expectations. We are considered a health care facility and will continue to require face coverings to be worn in the common areas of the Center. If you are fully vaccinated, you may remove your face covering once in the treatment room. If you are not fully vaccinated, you will be expected to keep your face covering on 100% of the time. Please notify your practitioner of your vaccination status if you haven’t already.

Comments Off on We Passed with Flying Colors!
The other day, I had started my first client and was waiting for my second when a woman walked in and told me she was in the area and there to do a random inspection on behalf of the State’s Massage Therapy board. I pointed out the licenses on the wall, showed her our control plan, our checklists in every room, our modified tables, our cleaning protocols, our covered linens, our open front door so nobody had to touch it, everything she would want to see...
Comments Off on MWC Closed Due To COVID-19
It is with a heavy heart but thoughtful mind that I’ve decided to close the Center for in-person treatments until further notice. I will still be available by email for herbal prescriptions and health questions. These are unprecedented times and hopefully we’ll be back to work soon but until then, stay safe, stay distant from people, and stay healthy! #inthistogether, #acupuncturelove

Comments Off on Acupuncture, Chronic Conditions, and Costumes
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...
Comments Off on Acupuncture, Cupping, and the US Olympic Athletes
TCM and Cupping Adjunctive Therapy
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...
