How To Creatively Celebrate Halloween With Acupuncture And Oriental Medicine Day

Halloween happens to be my favorite holiday. Not because we get to promote tooth decay in today’s youth (chocolate is delicious 365 days of the year, but as a caveat, everything is tasty in moderation!)  Or, to don tiny costumes with seemingly shrinking hemlines with each passing year (in NYC, the hip beauty store chain, […]

Battlefield Acupuncture Gains Popularity

With the recent commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 – in New York City, and across the globe – we are reminded about how important easing stress and (physical and emotional) pain surrounding a traumatic event can be.  This includes our troops, their spouses/partners, and those of us civilians who bore witness or experienced […]
