Today, I am going to let you in on a secret – we acupuncturists are often a feisty bunch. Many of us entered this field because we were attracted to whole healing, often looking to heal our own health issues (or the health issues of someone we love), and to resolve our own inner demons […]

How To Heal Your Frozen Shoulder Naturally

They call it “frozen shoulder” (also known as adhesive capsulitis) for a reason. At first, the shoulder feels like it’s in the “freezing stage”, where it’s getting tighter and restricted in mobility, and the pain is increasing. In addition, any arm movement away or towards your body is little bit like shooting a stream of […]

The 5 Physical Pain Archetypes. Which One Are You? (And How To Heal It)

Whenever we experience stress, it’s not just a sympathetic nervous system response of “fight or flight” that we feel emotionally.

How To Own Your Shit When You Lose Your Shit

You’ve gone and done it. You lost your cool. Life, a person, dreaded event, trigger, or circumstance has become too much, and you’ve just lost your shit. D-R-A-M-A has ensued, and maybe there were a few broken glasses thrown at the wall, choice words were hurled, and doors have been slammed. And you may have […]

How Forgiving Yourself Is The Ultimate Form Of Self-Love (And How To Do It)

I hear people brag about how hard they are on themselves. Like it’s a badge. While it is important to hold a certain standard of what we want to achieve, it does very little for our physical, mental, and spiritual health to berate ourselves for not being better.

How To Energetically Declutter Your Life So You Can Bring In The Good Juju

You may also know about the kind of cleaning that you do when you’re up at 1:30am with nothing better to do than sit uncomfortably with your nervous thoughts about the next day’s big meeting/performance/date/event, and you might as well scrub that entire stove that’s been crusting over for a month, along […]

The Gift Of Levity And Love During Times Of Trauma

The happy notes on the piano echoed strangely throughout the church. Each note rang strongly, quickly, and lightly. It was the last song my little sister had been practicing as part of her Suzuki piano method before she’d passed, many years ago. And, her piano teacher was playing it at her funeral to honor her. At first, people were uneasy […]

VIDEO: My Quick And Dirty Secret To Reducing Stress And Panic

Stress. Such a tiny word, for such a gigantic response within the body! It is no secret that heightened stress accounts for symptoms leading to more missed days at work, physical pain in the body, digestive disorders, breathing issues, skin breakouts, temporary hair loss, and even panic attacks, to name a few. Stress is an […]

I often get the question, “Your skin looks great! What do you do for it?” Although most people expect me to rattle off a myriad of skin care products (and believe me, the right skin care can really make a difference!), it’s really what you feed your Body, Mind, and Spirit that makes you glow […]
