An Acu Point to Calm the Mind: Heart 7
This time of year can often stir up quite a bit of emotion, from excitement and anxiety to sometimes sadness and fear. Acupuncture and self-acupressure can be lovely ways to restore peace and harmony to the mind and spirit.   
Staying Grounded This Holiday Season....

Change, whether it is physical through location or state of health, emotional, mental, job related, etc., can challenge our sense of stability and connectedness. As a simple notion, change is considered growth by some and can be interpreted in a negative perspective as well. 
Adding Bitter Foods During Winter May Preserve Joy!

As we ease into winter the air becomes cooler, the days darker. Winter's natural affect on the body is centering and sinking in nature, therefore we need to focus on foods that promote these aspects. This, in turn, supports the body's capacity to store energy.
Is Your Digestive Tract Irritated?

If you answered, yes - what is CAUSING your digestive tract to be irritated?

Could it be certain foods in the diet? Could it be the use of medications such as antibiotics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories? Could it be an imbalance of gut flora, also know as dysbiosis? Could it be sugar intolerance to lactose or fructose? Could it be stress?
