Healthy Foods for Fall

traditional chinese medicine foods for fall

The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.

As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading »

Five Reasons to Get Acupuncture for Low Back Pain

Statistics show eight out of 10 people will experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading »

March: Brain Injury Awareness Month

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.
Causes of traumatic brain injury include falls (40.5%) and car accidents (14.3%). If you or someone you love, or know, has had a TBI, Eastern medicine techniques can help restore much more normal brain function. We have special treatments which help immediately.
Even after being rear-ended in a car accident you have had a traumatic brain injury and your focus and mental clarity are less.  The higher the speed of the accident, the greater the loss of memory and cognitive function.  I know this is true not just from the literature but because I was rear-ended myself.
The great news is the degree of change you can experience immediately. Call 319-9711 for an appointment. Even 7 years later, mental function can be greatly improved.

Thank you.

Weight Loss Specialty Clinic a Wonderful Success

Helene Sorkin, L. Ac. and Debi Malone, L. Ac. began a small group specialty Weight Loss Clinic some months ago. It runs on Monday evenings. It has been a wonderful experience for them but especially for the participants! Many of the first group (7 week sign-up) also took advantage of the Weight Loss Yoga Class that happens on Wednesday nights as well. Georgeanna Kavanaugh, LMT and Yoga Therapist is teaching this class. You can tell by the use of the ‘present tense’ that both sessions are on-going.

Most participants in the first group lost 5 pounds the very first week. Fantastic!

Both are ready for a new influx of participants for the New Year. A few people are continuing on so as to further themselves through treatments, the yoga class, the camaradarie and support toward their goals. A weekly email of useful tips also continues along with handouts to give general/specific dietary  or lifestyle support. Very reasonably priced as we believe this is a very big boon to better health, the 7 session acupuncture package is $245; the 7 yoga class package is $52. The very first yoga class is free.
