Sleep Matters

Do you feel rested when you wake up in the morning? For most Americans the answer to this question is no. Making sleep a priority with our busy lives can be a challenge, but it is worth the effort. Here are just a few consequences of not getting enough sleep:

1. Not enough sleep makes us more stressed at work.
2. Not enough sleep can increase inflammation in the body causing an increase in acne breakouts and detract from your skin's natural beauty.
3. Lack of sleep can accelerate the aging process by decreasing the body's ability to repair damaged cells in our skin.
4. Poor sleep may contribute to weight gain.

And the list goes on.....

Improving your sleep and getting the rest you need can be done! Acupuncture combined with lifestyle changes can move you toward being a healthier and more rested individual. Give us a call to schedule your first acupuncture session to get the restorative sleep that you deserve.

IVF Workshop for Acupuncturists

I spent a day in the office of Dr. Christo Zouves completing the Zouves Fertility Center's Day with the Doc Workshop. The program is designed to provide acupuncturists training in the IVF process. I shadowed Dr. Zouves while he saw patients undergoing evaluation and treatment for a variety of fertility concerns.

I was able to view ultrasounds of the uterus and the ovaries as well as learn about the latest advances in laboratory techniques. I also had the opportunity to be present in the operating room for an IVF retrieval and an IVF transfer.

This workshop enabled me to expand my knowledge of the science of fertility treatment from a reproductive endocrinologist who routinely utilizes acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the treatment of his patients.  In addition, I now have an even deeper understanding of what my clients experience when they are going through the IVF process.
