The mind-body connection is nothing new in Eastern medicine.  Acupuncture, acupressure, meditation, and herbs are slowly making their way into the American lifestyle. I am thankful for the practice of using Western and Eastern medicine to achieve excellent health and balance.

Today I had my second acupuncture appointment, and I was excited for the changes it would bring. It wasn’t painful this time, rather relaxing and energizing.

The practice of inserting needles to the skin for healing is daunting I will admit. I am terrified of needles, but these are more like little pins placed superficially in the skin. The outcome is nothing short of miraculous and wonderful!
