Editor's Note: New Begininnings

Welcome to the first edition of Acufinder the Magazine!  We have been working diligently to bring the worlds first acupuncture magazine to life and we are so proud to present it to you.

I would like to start by wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year!  February 18th, 2007 marks the beginning of the year of the Pig.  According to Chinese astrology, the year of the Pig is a year of goodwill, abundance and contentment.  We wish you health, happiness and good fortune.  Happy New Year!

We decided to launch this first issue with the Chinese New Year.  New Year is a time for beginnings, new life and change.  It is always a good time to reflect on our health, lifestyle and life choices.  

Let™s start by taking a look at the upcoming season, spring.  See how the season is viewed from a Chinese medical perspective.  Our article (p.14) outlines ways to make the most of the season to increase your energy, calm your mind and stay balanced.

We have also included a great 5 minute Qi Gong exercise program to incorporate into your daily routine (p.10) and an article which looks at ways to use food, from an Eastern perspective (p.22), to enhance your health.

The main focus this month is new life and the role acupuncture and Chinese medicine play in fertility (p.16), a subject that is close to my heart as I celebrate the birth of my own little baby boy.  It seems that the treatment of infertility with Traditional Chinese Medicine is receiving a lot of attention these days, and for a good reason, it works!

We hope you enjoy this magazine as much as we enjoyed putting it together.  Let us know your thoughts and be sure to come visit us at for more of the latest integrative health news and stories.

In health,

Diane Joswick, L.Ac.
