Support Your Immune System with Acupuncture

By Ana del Rosal, L.Ac Ana-del-rosal-licensed-acupuncturist-vt  medium150

This time of year is commonly plagued with colds, flus, bronchitis or simply feeling run down. Our immune systems are challenged and impaired by the colder weather, lack of natural vitamin D, stress, and poor diet.

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC Acupressure Points

In most cases, acupuncture stimulation with a needle is much more effective and long-lasting than acupressure, but here are a few points that can be invaluable to know, and are very effective with acupressure alone that you can learn to do on your own.

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC

NAET is one of the only methods available to address not just the symptoms that arise due to allergies and sensitivities, but the root of those sensitivities and allergies in the body itself.

Integrative Pain Management: Free From Pain, Free From Dependency

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC

Why not Pop a Pill?  It’s Easy…right?

A recent study showed that patients over 60 who were given opiate painkillers after minor surgeries considered to be “low pain,” were 44% more likely to still be using the painkillers a year later when compared to patients who were not prescribed opiates right away.  There was also a strong trend in the opiate group to graduate from a drug like codeine, to stronger opiates like oxycodone within a year.  {Asim Alam, MD, et. al.  “Long-term Analgesic Use After Low-Risk Surgery: A Retrospective Cohort Study.” Arch Intern Med. 2012;172(5):425-430.}

Qi Gong for Spring

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC

Qi gong is roughly translated as “skill and understanding of qi through practice and work.”  Qi itself is difficult to define, but can be thought of as the movement of life: from the movement of breath, to kissing a child goodnight.  It is both esoteric and obvious.

Spring Fever

By Rebecca Rice, L.AC

The other day I was marveling at the fact that I hadn’t come down with a cold or flu all year!  To the surprise of my pride, the next morning I woke with chills, mild fatigue, and rhinitis.  Now I do see my missteps of the previous day-getting overjoyed with the sunshine and warm weather I went outside with damp hair and a lighter jacket, thus making myself more vulnerable to cold and flu viruses.  I also had a big cup of hot chocolate and later that night was walking in the cold March wind to my car returning from a concert, wearing the same light jacket.

Winter Solstice and Chinese Medicine

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC

There are a great many reasons and methods to celebrate the winter holiday season.  Numerous religious holidays, New Years and the American holiday of Thanksgiving have a tendency to keep us moving at top speed to keep up.  In Chinese medicine, the coming of winter is associated with the movement of the water archetype.
