Sweat it out: Ginger Baths 101 

Have a cold or the flu? Sip on ginger tea! But you already knew that, but did you know that soaking in a ginger bath can also help you fight off those pesky cold and flu symptoms? The ginger will cause profuse sweating, expelling toxins from the body, leaving you feeling reenergized, refreshed and symptom free. 

Here's how: 
  • Add ½ a cup of freshly grated ginger or a rounded teaspoon of ginger powder in hot or warm water 
  • Soak for 15-20 minutes. 
Remember to drink tons of water, staying hydrated is very important. In addition, heavy sweating may occur for at least an hour after, we recommend wearing a bathrobe or exercise clothing afterwards. Happy sweating!

Get Acupuncture and start feeling it's amazing benefits 

                    Three Acupuncture Points for 
the New 
Year

The following three acupuncture points are  perfect for starting the New Year off on the  right foot. These acupuncture points are  great for the cold winter months and will  help you reach your resolutions by providing  that extra boost of Qi you need.

URINARY BLADDER 23

This point is located bilaterally, on either side of the spine, it can be found one and a half thumb-breadths from the lower border of the second lumbar vertebra. This point is frequently used in the winter to help with deafness, dizziness, knee pain, low back pain and urinary issues.

GOVERNING VESSEL 14

GV 14 is a very important point for the winter  months. GV 14 is located below the seventh  cervical vertebra.  The defense layers of our skin are  strengthened when you utilize the point  GV 14. This is due to the fact this point  activates a significant amount of blood and  Qi circulation, which provides the increase in  strength. This point is used during the winter months
to prevent and cure colds, flu and seasonal related sickness.

STOMACH 36

Located bilaterally on the outer lower leg,  this point can be found one finger-breadth  from the border of the upper tibia and about  three thumb-breadths below the lower  border of the knee cap.  St 36 is known as the longevity point in TCM.  Some issues this point can help solve are  fatigue, dizziness and knee pain.
