Discussing holistic health in Pittsburgh

I had the great, last-minute pleasure of being interviewed by Joanne Quinn-Smith on her Positively Pittsburgh Live radio show on Monday night.  It was a round table discussion with another acupuncturist, Barbara Solomon and a chiropractor, Dr. Dan Turo. The topic was holistic health, and I had a fantastic time engaging in conversation with people […]

What your liver has to do with heartburn and anger

I started to write this post on Sunday evening, and wanted to have it up on the blog on Tuesday (it’s Wednesday.)  I’m sure you’re familiar with this scene:  I was at my computer, ready to write.  And then I moseyed on over to Facebook, just to, you know, check in.  I sent a few […]

Thriving teens and acupuncture

The very issues your teenager is struggling with, when seen through the lens of Chinese Medicine, can often be a pathway to a bright, innovative and highly successful future.  Acupuncture can give grounding to teens who are feeling torn in a million different directions, spark the child that’s feeling hopeless and stuck, and help bring […]

Five Reasons to Try Acupuncture

You can bring all of your concerns to your acupuncturist, even the little ones that seem trivial.  Your acupuncturist works to weave all the details of who you are into a pattern and the right treatment arises from that unique picture.  Your acupuncturist will spend at least an hour during the first visit going into […]
