Today I am conducting a “soft” opening. How convenient that Acupuncture is based on nature. My schedule may open up if this works well.


It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that I will be putting my practice on pause starting Monday March 16th until further notice. It would be irresponsible for me to stay open with the risk of spreading the virus asymptomatically. I care WAY too much about you! If you are a current patient please send me an email if you are interested in an herbal consult. I want ya'll sleeping like babies right now. [email protected]


Sometimes it's just that simple.


Today Bacon (my pup) and I spent an hour with our trainer and I can't even tell you how amazing my little rescue mutt is! In March I start training with hospice to be a volunteer and in the near future will be sharing Bacon snuggles with people in palliative care and hospice. I am so lucky!

One of the conversations I enjoy most with the patients I visit is about the visions they see. The other day I was with a gentleman who shared that he has been seeing people in his room, mostly men. He is not afraid of them, they seem like they are there to help him feel less alone.

I asked if he talked to them; he told me he didn't know what to say, so we discussed things he could ask them. He asked me if this meant he was dying soon. My response was that while yes... he is dying, I did not believe they are representative of the time frame. I told him I thought that maybe being near death allowed him to be more receptive to their presence and they knew that, which is why they were there. This seemed an acceptable answer to him.

I saw him again the following day and he told me that he started to talk to them, they didn't say words, but he felt their answers, one of which was that he was safe and not to be afraid, which he welcomed. Then he proceeded to tell me that his two dogs who had passed away came to see him. A tear rolled down his cheek. He said they jumped on his bed and curled up next to him.

I would like to think that when I am near death, my dog Jack will curl up next to me...

Sometimes I push my patients a little bit because I KNOW they can get better! And they do..... but life is SO much better when you have support!


Meet Bacon. (He is the little black dog in back.) I rescued Bacon from a high kill shelter in Texas. He is currently being trained to become a therapy dog so we can do volunteer work and spread some love. Today we spent the morning at the Lynden Manor memory care unit. If you are looking to add a pup to your family please consider adopting! Save a life...

Tortoise climbing on to a log

Living slow like the tortoise is revered in our culture. It means longevity. It is not a concept grasped quickly in our fast food super size culture, but slowing down can have positive health effects.


Happy Monday! LOL

If you choke the motor with crappy fuel it will be boggy and sluggish. It's just not going to run well. May take some time to clean up and get going once you choose the right fuel.

Food for thought...pun intended
