My clinical practice has four major aspects:
Acupuncture, massage, herbs and nutritional interventions relieve symptoms and help you relax and heal more quickly.
2. Individual Health Consultations (in-person or online)
I will teach you to interpret the signs and symptoms you are experiencing so you can monitor your own health, and suggest specific changes in nutrition and lifestyle that will improve your health now.
No matter our age or where we are in terms of ability or disease, there is always a way to feel better. The journey toward improving health is frequently the road less traveled, made easier by encouragement from friends along the way.
We are potentially our own best healers, with direct personal insight into how our body-mind is doing. There is no therapy, medication or supplement that can grant or restore health; although others can help only we can do that for ourselves. My blog posts offer inspiration and information to make it easier to keep on a path toward better health. Subscribe here.
You can be your own best heath practitioner.
Often the most powerful therapies are the ones we implement ourselves in our everyday lives.
Many of us have some ideas about what we might do to create better health. The challenges we all face are:
1. Figure out what changes will impact our health most effectively
2. Learn how to make those changes
3. Follow through consistently. This is the hardest part for most people.
A personal health practice is a lifetime project. Small habits practiced consistently over time can make a big difference. I will be facilitating groups for the purpose of learning about how to develop personal health practices and helping each other to stay focused, starting in September. Register above for a group that will help you improve these aspects of health:
Discover the foods and schedule that help you feel and function best.
Optimize your sleep so you can be active and fully present in life.
Develop your ability to respond in a balanced way to pathogenic influences.
Our ability to focus, balance our emotions, process and remember information, and adapt gracefully to change can be influenced in relatively unexpected ways.
Lasting weight loss is about so much more than calories and exercise.
Find ways to more effectively unplug, let go, and manage life transitions.
