The current global health crisis has created an unusual social situation, that of social distancing and self-isolation, that has far-reaching implications for our health.

Moving Forward with Tele-health

Apr 04, 2020

When most people think about Acupuncture, what comes to mind is the physical, hands-on treatment you’re used to receiving from your practitioner. However, as many may not realize, Traditional Chinese Medicine has three main pillars: acupuncture, herbal medicine, and diagnosis. So, as it turns out, TCM is more than just needles! Current physical distancing measures, unfortunately, remove the hands-on portion of the treatment, but as all my patients know, there is more to your acupuncture session than just acupuncture, and starting this week, we’re setting out to prove it!

And Now for Something Completely Different

Mar 28, 2020

Here are some of the things I’ve been thinking about while not thinking about that other thing.

Have Faith Not Fear During These Unsettled Times

Mar 26, 2020
In the past few months we have faced something few of us would have ever imagined possible. It's straight out of a hollywood film like Contagion or Outbreak. When talking to patients I can hear the fear in their voices. I can see the feeling of unease when waving to my neighbors. We have a feeling of fear around our health, our finances, a general sense of lack of control, even a fear of running out of toilet paper!
