If the thought of sitting on a cushion for any length of time is a turn off, you can still get the benefits of a mindfulness practice through qigong and tai chi. These are moving meditation practices that focus the mind and also offer physical health benefits such as improved flexibility, better sleep, and improved energy.

I teach these practices online so you can learn from anywhere, and I'm at your service. I'm currently available for individual consultations and will be teaching a new class for spring. Stay tuned!

This is a common question. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points on the body. The difference is how those points are stimulated. Acupuncture uses needles and acupressure uses pressure, either with your hands or another type of tool (one study used swizzle sticks typically used in cocktails! 😀)

Once you learn the appropriate points for your specific condition and health pattern, you can even use acupressure at home as part of your treatment plan. I prescribe acupressure a lot these days for everything from anxiety to hot flashes to headaches to respiratory health!

I hope you are taking time to rest and replenish. Our culture sometimes doesn't value quiet and rest (yin) as much as activity and busyness (yang). Winter is a time of shorter days and longer nights, perfect for resting more and nourishing the yin in our life. What are you doing to refill your cup?

I've been helping people with their health for about 20 years, and I've noticed something fairly common. People often judge their bodies as having failed when they get sick, experience pain, or even age.

Our society is increasingly putting a morality value on wellness, as if illness is a sort of moral failure. You got sick? You must have done something wrong. You must not have meditated enough or juiced enough or avoided gluten or done enough yoga/cardio/pilates/bootcamp/crossfit, etc. Maybe you thought negative thoughts!

Look, all bodies need support from time to time. Getting sick and experiencing pain (and getting older) are all inevitable parts of the human experience. Full stop.

You can argue with this reality and suffer a lot. Or, you can practice acceptance that this sometimes happens and your body hasn’t failed or betrayed you.

So, if you refrain from judging yourself or your body for needing support, you've eliminated a good deal of your suffering right there. You can just get on with reaching out for the support you need.

If you need health or wellness support right now, please click the link in the bio and contact me. I'd love to help.

Chinese medicine is root cause medicine. We want to know why something has happened. If you become ill or unwell, we ask, "What imbalance allowed this condition to arise?" And then we ask, "How can we resolve this imbalance so that health is restored?" We treat individuals and their health patterns rather than treating the symptoms alone. When the body and mind/heart are balanced, there is health and vitality.

Sometimes the best medicine is a dose of the natural world. Fresh air and sunshine can help our bodies maintain their regular innate rhythms such as sleep cycles. Research also suggests that spending time in nature can help relieve depression, anxiety and can also benefit memory.

Do you have a favorite place to enjoy nature?
