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...

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...
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...
This past weekend was epic in terms of breaking down and setting up the most beautiful, professional office the Marlborough Wellness Center has seen yet!

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...
Great news again for acupuncture….research has shown that acupuncture combined with herbal medicine outperforms Acyclovir for the treatment of shingles (varicella zoster virus)! According to researchers from Hubei Medicine College in China, acupuncture combined with a basic herbal formula (with modifications as needed) has a 100% total effective rate for the treatment of shingles whereas a combination of oral and topical Acyclovir plus Methylcobalamin has an 82.86% total effective rate...
