Self-Care for the Energy Body

Self-Care for the Energy Body

I am often asked by patients how I replenish myself.  As you may realize, performing acupuncture and energy work is demanding. I aspire to a lofty goal.

Shift Towards a Balanced SELF

"...The apex of the direct human study of life’s undulations is manifested in the I Ching that pre-dates recorded history (4000 BCE).  Its concept is simple: Truth through a larger viewpoint brings clarity and stability, even in the face of intense transition.  It is important to see the bigger picture because at our core we are eternal aspects of divinity.  It is in that space we find peace.
