3 AcuPoints for Anxiety

One of the most wonderful things about being an acupuncturist is the ability to stimulate points on my own body when I need to.

No matter what you’re trying to accomplish, setting goals is one way to help you get there.

That’s one option, but let’s put things into perspective. continue reading »

Stress is the body’s way of signaling for help or a break in the routine. If we don’t listen to these signals, we can develop imbalances in our bodies, which can then lead to illnesses. continue reading »

Putting My Oxygen Mask On First – Ugly Truth Behind My Clutter

I’ve always struggled a bit with clutter – I’d have a “junk drawer” that was hard to open because it was so stuffed full. Or that closet that you’d have to be careful when opening. But my clutter got out of control several years ago. I had a ton of sexy excuses for it – I was going to school full-time while working 60+ hours/week and raising two kids. continue reading »
