These past few weeks have been busy for me. Busier than I’ve asked for. I like to stay engaged in life but I don’t like feeling overwhelmed by too many “to-dos”!

What I really love about acupuncture is watching my patients get out of pain (be it physical, emotional, or mental struggles) an...

You may have noticed the cool breeze in the late evenings and early mornings. We’re into the season of “Late Summer” now. This is the time of the Harvest in Chinese Medicine. Late Summer is a great time to reap the fruits of your labor and set aside some nourishment for the colder months to come.


The “virtue” associated with this time of year is “integrity.” When it comes to feeding yourself, both with actual food and with activities and passions that really help you thrive, you have to kn...
