Pain free April 10 2018

Just took an amazing acupuncture course on Chronic Pain Management.  The instructor works in a pain management clinic and has combined Western and Eastern Medicine to create a new and more effective way to deal with pain. He claims that with this new method he has a 70 - 80% success rate with just one treatment. I've been testing it on clients over the last two days with great results....

Nutritional Supplements January 08 2018

Are you tired of guessing which nutritional supplements would be beneficial for your health?  I often find myself guessing which supplements would most benefit my clients and sending them to the health food store or to a practitioner for advice. Now I have a new machine which will tell me and my clients which supplements are needed.  I bought a Zyto Compass which uses biocommunication to determine biological coherence for...

Scar tissue December 17 2017

I took a new course about 6 weeks ago and bought a machine designed to reduce scar tissue.  This includes scars from surgeries, accidents, burns, dental procedures, fractures, tatoos etc. Of course, I knew that scars cause adhesions and fascial restrictions.  But what I didn't know was that scars often lead to pain on the opposite side of the body anatomically.  For example, abdominal scars lead to back pain. I...

Exercise for the aging April 26 2017

Miranda Esmonde-White.  Google her.  She's a 64 year old former ballerina and she's amazing!  Miranda has a show on PBS called "Classical Stretch".  It's on @ 8:30 a.m. Monday to Friday and it's a great workout.  You can find a couple of her shows on Utube or go to the library and take out one of her books. One of my sedentary clients told me that she started just doing the...

High Blood Pressure December 02 2015

Just wanted to share a personal experience.  High blood pressure and heart disease runs in my family so I keep a close eye on mine (especially now that I'm almost 50).  I take all the right supplements but recently I woke with a slight headache.  I was heading to the pharmacy anyway so I figured I'd check my B/P.  I'd felt frustrated over a personal situation recently so I was...

Earthing October 29 2015

So they now have a name for what I've instinctively been doing my whole life!  And I just read an article that claims it's the most important health discovery ever. Scientists are apparently just learning that city dwelling is throwing our body electrical cycles out of sync and that coming into contact with the surface of the earth and reconnecting with its energy (a process called grounding) may be the...

Quit smoking with acupuncture October 05 2015

Four things you should know: There is an acupuncture "quit smoking" point.  It is called Tim Mee and is located on your arm.  However, it must be used in conjunction with other acupuncture points that will be chosen based on your needs. Acupuncture has been used for a long time to help combat addiction.  It can stop jitters, curb cravings, lesson irritability and restlessness, increase relaxation and help detoxify the body. Acupuncture...

Xi's Acupuncture October 01 2015

Last month I attended an acupuncture seminar that was a once in a lifetime experience!  The instructor (Xi) was a 90 year old Chinese gentleman who introduced acupuncture to Canada.  He also wrote all of the acupuncture textbooks used in Canada!  He is attempting to pass on 70 years of wisdom and I learned so much. Xi introduced me to a new acupuncture method for treating pain which I have already used with...

Anxiety 101 September 09 2015

Many of my clients suffer from anxiety which seems to range from blushing, & sweating profusely to all out panic attacks.  Anxiety can really take a toll on your health and affect your lifestyle negatively. I usually use acupuncture to effectively treat anxiety.  I tell my clients "You will leave with all the same problems you came in with.  You just won't care about them anymore".  If you're afraid of...

Improve your posture July 21 2015

People often tell me that I have great posture!  Matrix repatterning improves posture without any effort but since it will lighten your wallet a bit here are a few tips to improve on your own: 1.   Stop thinking about your shoulders.  Instead work on keeping your chest up and open. Your body will look better, function better and be more comfortable in the long run. You may even be able to breathe and...

Back pain July 10 2015

 "I've put my back out"!!!  Do you know how many times I've heard that in my office?  You can avoid a lot of back pain by applying the following advice: Use it or lose it - When lifting heavy objects or picking up the kids, use your knees.  Otherwise this will lead to overstretching and damage your back.  Try not to bend from the waist, which increases the stress on your...

C'est La Vie June 28 2015

So many people today feel that their life is spinning out of control!  When I begin to feel that way, I consider what I can cut out of my life and make some changes.  But what if you are raising young children, caring for aging parents or have other unchangeable circumstances.  I hope the following suggestions help: focus your energy on things you can control be clear about what you...
