Super excited about our new tea station! Cozy up with a cup of tea before or after your next appointment. Try out one of these great teas to help fight since nearly every tree in the valley seems to be blooming right now.
One of the things I love most about Chinese medicine is the approach to food. Food is medicine. And roughly three times a day, you have the chance to fuel your body’s repair systems that keep you healthy. Did you know that oregano is a Chinese herb traditionally used to move qi, clear heat, and expel wind. These are all important functions as we feel the effects of Spring causing allergies, and often a general feeling of being stuck, irritable, or even depressed. is a great herb to add to your diet to keep you feeling even! And now we have a planter of it in front of the clinic. Come by and get a sniff or grab some for a dish!

Exercise, including gentle movement like walking and tai chi, moves your body’s energetic and can help fight agains some of the seasonal irritability that can come with springtime.
