Well, summer is here and so many folks are heading on vacation. If you have that privilege I hope it brings you joy and refreshment. However, if you can't get away try putting some fun into your life by meeting up with friends or family. Our clan is trying out a weekly swim and Pickleball meet up. It's very inexpensive and is turning out to be a lot of fun and some great laughs.

This is one of my favorite pictures of spring.My sister took it in 2004 in front of the church we went to as children. The tree is beautiful in its maturity and the way it almost touches the ground. The azaleas are vibrant in their colors and the bench is so inviting. Such a peaceful place. I hope that every day you are creating moments of peace to anchor and sustain you.

Well, here we are at the end of summer. In fact, in the Chinese calendar we are already in autumn. It is the season when we let go of the unimportant and unnecessary so we don’t have to carry it through winter. I encourage you to take some time and identify who are the people you truly care about and make sure you nurture those relationships. Prune your activities now so there is more room for rest and reflection.

I hear a lot of people saying,” Oh my gosh, this summer has flown by!” And all I can think is,” We still have plenty of summer left!” And if I’m honest I am often on to the next thing either mentally or physically without enjoying the conclusion of an activity. In acupuncture this season is referred to as late summer and is associated with ripening and harvest. It includes the ability to enjoy what you have created. It is about savoring life. So whatever is next on your list, pause a moment and enjoy. Feel free to contact me at 703-421-1300 if you would like to know more about how acupuncture can support you.

Summer is the perfect time to try something new or pullout something you haven't done in a very long time and enjoy it again. I got to go kayaking on the Potomac with a group from where we live. It turned out to be a whole lot of fun! None of the things I worried about happened and lots of cool things that I didn't foresee did happen. Perhaps one of the best things was being without my phone or camera. That made it easy to be fully present and just enjoy the scenery, the people, the activity itself.

I hope you take time this summer to be fully immersed in something, anything really, and when it is over take a moment and reflect on how that felt.

Did the recent heatwave leave you suffering? Are you feeling more sensitive to the heat than ever before? Even though you are caught up on hydration does something still feel off? You may be suffering from a heat invasion, a condition that responds will to acupuncture treatment.

Black and white photography has a power all its own. It shifts our perspective and helps us see things, even a dandelion, in a fresh way. In this season of summer and Fire I am reminded of the acupuncture point Pericardium 7 which is named Great Mound. In ancient China mounds were often burial mounds that rose above the surrounding plains. From a mound one could see neighboring land differently. Pericardium 7 is a wonderful point for calming and strengthening where there is anxiety, trauma or insecurity. Once that happens our perspective may broaden and we can see new possibilities on our next step.

Last year my wife and I decided we wanted to foster kittens. Starting something new is always a learning curve. In this case, what age kittens? How do we help them find a home? Will the group we are affiliated with take them back if we don't find a home for them? Trying something new can be challenging and its what keeps us young and engaged. This little girl is our latest foster, Olive. She surprised us the other night with a long game of fetch. Olive is ready to be adopted and if you want an awesome little companion who snuggles more than the average cat leave me a message and I'll be in touch.

In photography the lens has a field of focus, the area where the picture will be sharp. In these two photos I took last week of a tri colored heron that field becomes obvious. In one everything in front of the wings is in focus and in the other it’s everything behind. Our emotional field of focus can be similar. Do we zoom in so tightly on one element that we miss the big picture? Can we hold our attention open and calm enough that we see the entire series without getting snagged on any one piece? Developing a nimble mind and a peaceful heart will allow us to flourish.

In Chinese Medicine spring is the energy and season associated with creativity. Last year at this time the courtyard was filled with cherry trees and azalea in bloom. However there were cracks and debris from failing brickwork. I’ve watched as the courtyard was stripped down to the rebar and is now returning to a beautiful, peaceful garden area for the residents. Time and again I have experienced and witnessed in friends, family and clients a shaking of the foundations. It is usually caused by some form of trauma. Virtually all of us will need help to move through the trauma and return to the place of creativity. I consider it an honor to help someone at that stage and love watching them bloom again.

Once again our weather forecast is calling for snow but don't worry. It is still Spring! This blip is like the black dot on the white side of a Tai Chi symbol. A part of nature that is ever present and at the same time does not sway the trajectory of the season. Much like the daily events in our lives that bring color and texture while we weave the result we want.

You are never too old for acupuncture! This young woman is 99 and had fallen. In addition to this point on her ear I needled around her knee. She later reported less pain.

Alternative Pain Therapies Could Help Quell Opioid Crisis, but Barriers Remain

Sometimes people think acupuncture is only good for pulled muscles but it is actually quite powerful and helpful on multiple levels.

As opioid overdoses surge, health professionals look to non-pharmacological treatments like chiropractic care and acupuncture.

Spring is so close! In the Chinese calendar it started February 16 and in the US we will mark it by the Spring Equinox on March 20. This period between the two dates is marked by fluctuations in the weather, periods of strong winds and blossoms bursting forth. It’s a great time to restore balance and let go of anything we don’t want to carry forth.

Do you love flowers but they don't love you back? Then read what one of my clients sent me today about acupuncture's impact on his allergies.

My seasonal allergies have improved to the point
that with a monthly maintenance session I am free of allergies for the first time in my life.
These allergy outburst had increased over time in my life. They have annoyed me during my trips and at home.
Now I am free of them, no matter where I go and without medication affecting my stomach. Very satisfied.”
