“Though we travel the world over to find beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

A healthy environment, proper diet, exercise, and good medical care are important factors that affect our longevity and vitality. What role does acupuncture and Oriental medicine play in living a long life filled with health and vibrancy? Read an excerpt from Dr. Maoshing Ni’s book, Secrets of Longevity (p.10), and incorporate Lee Holden's Dan Tian Meditation into your daily routine (p.20).

Acupuncture has become increasingly popular in the beauty realm as more and more people learn of its ability to decrease lines on the face and improve overall facial tone and skin elasticity (p.24). Be sure to try the facial acupressure routine for a quick face revitalization (p.14).

The health benefits of managing body weight are incontrovertible. Discover the “lighter” side of acupuncture as we explore the benefits of incorporating acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine into a weight loss regimen. Read my article (p.18) to learn why we tend to be overweight and how acupuncture can help. And learn from the experiences of several patients and acupuncturists who have witnessed powerful personal results with acupuncture, TCM, and weight loss (p.16).  

As always, be sure to come visit us as for more of the latest acupuncture and integrative health news and information.

In health,
