My new office in 203 is still a dream. We're still waiting for a permit- after 4 months! I was imagining it while describing the layout to a patient last week, and I felt excited like I never had. I could finally see it! It's going to be beautiful, serene, and fresh. I'm going to have fish tank with goldfish. There will be orchids in front of the 8 foot windows in the treatment rooms. I will wash my hands with lavender soap in the sink at the end of the hall. At the end of the day I will close the sliding doors to the treatment space, and light will softly come through the frosted glass panels. I'm going to work on keeping these images in my minds eye and let's see if the power of attraction can make it happen.
In the meantime, I am learning patience and to really be grateful for what I have. I love my office, I have wonderful patients, and I am blessed with and wonderful family and vitality.

- Work on your Liver. In the theory of Chinese Medicine, stress affects the Liver primarily. Since the Liver is in charge of keeping energy flowing freely in our bodies, when we get stressed, our energy gets stuck. This can result in a number of issues such as pain, digestive problems, and difficulty sleeping. Having a acupuncture focused on releasing the energy of the Liver organ will help you manage stress.
- Get regular exercise. Physical exercise accomplishes at least a few things when it comes to stress reduction. Moving helps to move our stuck energy, breathing helps engage our diaphragm to release the stuck energy in our organs (especially the liver) , and physical exertion causes the release of endorphins to make us feel happy.
- Eat food as medicine. Food can heal our bodies or make us sick. Every time we put something in our mouths we are making a choice. Ask yourself when you eat, “Am I nourishing myself with this food?” Eating lots of processed foods will weaken our energy and this makes us more susceptible to stress. Remember to eat real foods, not food products, and you’ll be in pretty good shape.
- Sleep soundly. Do you wake up rested? If not, then you may consider any number of natural remedies, including acupuncture and chinese herbs.
- Meditate. Spend more time without judgement in the present moment. Go with the flow of life. Just 5 minutes a day of focused breathing in a comfortable position will make a world of difference in how you respond to stressors.
