Six follow up care tips to make the most of your acupuncture treatment

After Acupuncture: Making the Most of your Treatment

You have read about how to book your appointment with me.

You have read about what to expect during your appointment.

But what about after your appointment? What happens after an acupuncture appointment? Is there anything that you should know before you leave the office?

​Absolutely. In my experience as an acupuncturist, what happens outside of the treatment space is more important than what happens inside of it. The same is true for any practitioner. Your doctor’s appointment won’t help you get over your ear infection if you don’t take your antibiotics. Your massage therapy appointment won’t be effective for more than a week if you don’t follow your practitioner’s advice.

​After-care and homework are a vital part of any treatment plan. So here are six pieces of advice to help you get the most from your acupuncture treatment.

Summer Living: Utilizing the Season of Flourishing

Summer is here!

“Wait, what?” some of you are saying, “Summer doesn’t start until June 20th.”

I get what you’re saying. Here in Minnesota it feels like we skipped spring altogether. Two weeks ago we had a 2 day blizzard with 20 inches of snow in the Twin Cities. Today we have a predicted high of 76 and the lilac bushes are running to catch up.

But the way we think of seasons is…off. We are disconnected from the cycles of the seasons, the moon and the sun because we run off the calendars in our pockets and the light from our television screens.

It’s a shame really. There is so much wisdom that our ancestors – all of our ancestors – had.

Seasonal living and the ideas that come with it aren’t only rooted in Chinese medicine.

​Last December I posted a blog on living seasonally in the winter. Now, let’s talk about the summer.
