Chinese Medicine Demystified



There is a wonderful series of posts about Chinese Medicine written by Chris Kresser, a sort of mentor of mine (although he does not know this yet!). Chris is also a licensed acupuncturist in California. But he’s way more than that. He’s a pretty well sought- after integrative practitioner of Functional Medicine, an a New York Times best selling author of the Paleo Cure.

I wonder if he’s actually even practicing acupuncture at all with everything else that he does. But I am grateful that he spent time writing this series of articles demystifying Chinese Medicine for people who would like to know more about this form of healing arts without reading a big thick text book, or finding several research papers.

Chris talks about the origins of myths related to Qi, energy, and meridians. He also goes into depth about how acupuncture works from a Western point of view ( acupuncture helps stimulate the nervous system to release endorphins, norepinephrine and enkephalin). He talks about the physiology of pain and how acupuncture can help pain.

The last article of the series goes into why he thinks that acupuncture is an effective method of healthcare and how you can incorporate it into your lifeIMG_3797.

In short, he did such a good job that there is no reason for me to try to repeat what he said. So I hope that you will hop over to Chris’ site and read the articles for yourself and enjoy!

Have a wonderful week! Stay warm!




New Office Space, Same location


This print is coming with us to the new space! It makes me so happy to look at it each day: peace and solitude, with light at the end of the tunnel.

Hi all!

I apologize for being away from this blog space. There has been an inertia since my website went down a couple of months ago. But from now on, I plan to post more regularly, as I believe in frequent communication about health, and well-being.

Today’s post, however, is short and sweet.

It’s to announce that I have moved from my previous office space to a new one. Moving forward, I can be found at 2700 E. Main St, Suite 110 in downtown Bexley.

This new space gives us one more treatment room, which means that you will have more options when making appointments!

You are still encouraged to make appointments online. In a few weeks, once I get a hang of the new rhythm, I will change the settings so that more options will show up on Schedulicity. In the meantime, if you don’t see a suitable time for you on there, please email me directly, and we will find a spot for you!

Thank you for your patience, as we transition in real life, and virtually.

I continue to be honored and humbled to be part of your natural health and wellness team!

With gratitude,
