Summer and Chinese medicine

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Heart is in charge of governing Blood, controlling the blood vessels and sweat. Emotional and spirit issues of the heart include insomnia, palpitations, mania and shock. The Heart helps us connect with others, bringing us joy, compassion, and love. It brings us closer to our true self.


Acupuncture and pregnancy

Acupuncture and herbs can help women get pregnant, stabilize the fetus, prevent threatened miscarriage, help with morning sickness, back pain and many more issues that may arise.  Acupuncture can also be very effective for cervical ripening and an alternative to medical labor induction.
