Always a good reminder to take ~the ~time. ๐Ÿค

Iโ€™ve been slowing it down the past few years.. though perhaps Iโ€™m a little too slow these days! ๐Ÿ˜น
Well said .
As I stood at the register, asking the barista about the coffee beans and where they were from, a long smile came to her face.

She had a passion for speaking about coffee origins and jumped into the education behind each option. It felt like a best friend who was sharing the deepest corner of their heart with you.

Iโ€™m a basic coffee guy: black, at home in our French press, and I use the same two blue mugs in rotation.

Today, I was in the mood for something random, something with more personality. I had two coaching calls and headed to a local cafe to get coffee.

As she steamed the milk and turned the metal rods like a transformer, she thanked me for being there.

I said, โ€œThank you for what?โ€

She said, โ€œThank you for taking your time.โ€

What she didnโ€™t know is this was a healthy trigger for me. In last week's newsletter & with every human Iโ€™ve spoken to over the previous month, Iโ€™ve asked them all to slow down. For someone outside my usual space to recognize the intention was validation that it was working.

We bantered back & forth about the speed of this generation as a handful of people sat in the coffee shop with headphones on , face down in screens.

I ended the chat by saying,โ€ Morgan, thank you for making my coffee today, & I hope you find time to appreciate the little things.โ€

And as I left, she smiled and said, โ€œDonโ€™t be busy.โ€

Sharing pieces of this interaction with you as an invitation to,

โ€ข eliminate what is unnecessary
โ€ข delegate what you can
โ€ข reorganize your systems
โ€ข get clarity on what drives you, your purpose, and how you spend time
โ€ข reconnect with your sleep routine & sleep schedule to sleep well.

This world makes everything fast, but we are the world. Letโ€™s choose the pace that works for us.

Thank you for reading; blessings and good energy to you.


Microneedling results! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Look at all that new collagen! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿช„Results achieved with 6 sessions spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿช„This patient added 3 Cosmetic Acupuncture plus nanoneedling sessions (what I call the Nanofacial) in between her micro sessions. This is highly recommended to complement the microneedling results and plump up the epidermis(top layer) of the skin.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿช„Microneedling = collagen induction. Itโ€™s a cumulative effect but the results start showing up after the first 2 sessions.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿช„New collagen = lifted, lighter, smoother skin. Plus fine lines are softened. These pics show that beautifully as in the โ€˜afterโ€™ you see the lift and plumpness in the face, the skin texture is smoother, and the skin tone is lighter!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿช„And after each session-product absorption is increased so patients are encouraged to stick to a high quality skincare protocol to enhance results.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
๐Ÿช„Individual results vary. Let me know if you would like more information about my microneedling packages!

Do you have puffy pollen eyes?

Itโ€™s a given in both Austin and Dallas right now. Try these acupressure points beautifully illustrated by .co. I recommend twice per day for several days for the best results. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’šRepost from .co
Spring is a great time to focus on your eye health. In TCM, spring is associated with the Liver, which channels into the eyes.๏ฟฝโ 
If you experience blurry vision, dry eyes, eye irritations, redness, or itchy eyes, it could be a sign of poor Liver Qi flow.โ 
Since Liver blood nourishes and moistens the eyes, here are a few acupressure points you can stimulate to restore your eyesโ€™ brightness and support their general health.โ 
๐Ÿ‘‰ LI-4 (Hegu ๅˆ่ฐท)โ 
๐Ÿ‘‰ LV-3 (Taichong ๅคชๅ†ฒ)โ 
๐Ÿ‘‰ 8 points around the eyesโ 
Stimulate each point for at least 30 seconds, and longer if needed. You can use the tip of your YINA Gua Sha tool or your fingers. Repeat 3-5x.โ 
Do you experience any eye issues around this time of year?โ

How Nature Helps Us Heal 10/22/2021

How Nature Helps Us Heal

Why Acupuncture sessions are my favorite treatments!

How Nature Helps Us Heal A doctor explains why he prescribes time outside to his patients.


Her First !

I love introducing this service to patients for the first time and starting them down this wonderful path of self-care! ๐ŸŽ‘It is almost always an existing patient who Iโ€™m treating for something else- pain, insomnia, sleep issues, digestive support, etcโ€” and then they ask for more info on Cosmetic Acupuncture! Aka what I call the Acufacial! โœจ๐Ÿฅฐโœจ

An Acufacial consists of:
-face and body points
-infrared light panel
-either scalp guasha or facial wand massage(depends on the patientโ€™s needs that day
-facial guasha can be added on for an additional fee and is complimentary with every six sessions of Cosmetic Acupuncture.

The end result: and RELAXATION! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸปโœจโœจAnd because Iโ€™m activating many smile muscles -you may just feel happier!

A series of Cosmetic Acupuncture sessions (12-24 )is recommended for best results. It tightens muscle and skin tone in the face, softens wrinkles, improves moisture and elasticity in the skin and gives an overall โ€˜liftโ€™ to the face.

Plus- adding in an hour of deep relaxation to your week has so many other benefits to your body, mind and spirit!

Itโ€™s never just โ€˜about the faceโ€™!

The end of what feels like the longest, heaviest weekโ€ฆ..especially since Iโ€™m a lifelong Texan. And a woman. And it is not only OK to talk about this, we NEED to talk about this. Expressing emotions and speaking out when we donโ€™t feel honored or respected as humans is vital to our mental health and well-being.

No better time to give myself a magical unicorn, warrior princess mini-treatment.

It brought me peace and strength and filled up my resilience cup ๐Ÿ†. Acupuncture has an incredible ability to be both grounding and energizing at the same time. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Itโ€™s important to know the simple things that restore your mental strength , self-compassion and inner peace. And maybe make you feel a little โœจ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿงโ€โ™€๏ธโœจ !

Right now Iโ€™m encouraging all my patients to focus on their sleep, write positive notes to themselves, stay hydrated ,and commit to Acupuncture sessions 1-4x month while experiencing mental and physical burnout symptoms.

What are your favorite tried and true rituals for filling your cup when lifeโ€™s complexities start draining your mental and physical reserves?

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Pro tip: An hour before you apply a facial mask-especially a detoxing clay and or charcoal combination- make sure you take a dose of your skin supporting nutrients and herbal formulas. The increased blood flow to the face will draw those supplements to the targeted area. โžก๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐโฌ…๏ธโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
If you are treating acne/maskne, a few of my favorite supplements are: โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โœ…Vitamin C and Collagen-to support healthy collagen growth and repair from the inside-out. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โœ…Zinc (take with food or you may feel nauseous ๐Ÿคข) helps damaged skin heal and reduces acneic inflammation. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โœ…MSM(organic sulfur) Multi-functioning skin saver that supports collagen and keratin synthesis (great for hair growth too!), reduces systemic inflammation in the body, and can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โœ…Burdock root- a blood and lymphatic โ€˜purifierโ€™ with antibacterial properties. Look for it in a skin blend with echinacea.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โœ…Chinese Rx herbals are extremely effective at treating skin inflammation and breakouts. I prescribe both Golden Flower and Evergreen formulas. Youโ€™ll need to see your Acupuncturist for a custom recommendation. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โœ…Fresh juice- Not a supplement, but listing anyway as fresh green veggie drinks(live enzymes) which supply detoxifying and oxygenating chlorophyll-with a little carrot added for that beta-carotene boost -are your skinโ€™s best friend! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Iโ€™ll leave the post-masking topical recommendations to my natural esthetician friends! (Though I personally LOVE misting with Mei Zen Astragalus and Geranium toner and following with a CBD infused moisturizer. ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Facial Acupuncture and LED Light Therapy: The Low-Touch Treatment for Enhancing Your Acupuncture Practice 05/17/2021

Facial Acupuncture and LED Light Therapy: The Low-Touch Treatment for Enhancing Your Acupuncture Practice

The many reasons why I Iove adding LED light therapy to Acupuncture sessions. Whether we are doing an Acufacial with facial rejuvenation points or a stress reduction/relaxation session- LED light therapy has so many benefits!

Facial Acupuncture and LED Light Therapy: The Low-Touch Treatment for Enhancing Your Acupuncture Practice This Year of the Metal Ox presents its challenges, as many acupuncturists have been forced to adjust their clinical practice regimes due to COVID-19-imposed restrictions. Telemedicine screening, elimination of the waiting room, and modified patient load with enhanced safety procedures significantly....


Healing isnโ€™t linear.

This canโ€™t be repeated enough. Itโ€™s about that journey. ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ›ค๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผ

There are usually more bumps in the road... and twists and turns to navigate at the that is why I typically see a patient more frequently in the beginning. Consecutive acupuncture treatments are powerful activators! We are filling up the bodyโ€™s gas tank and tuning the engine.

And those bumps and twists can pop up anywhere. But a prepared start equips your body and mind with the resilience to heal..and to keep going!

What have been some of your biggest obstacles to healing?

Zen, please: Demand for mental health services surges during pandemic

I often tell my patients with chronic anxiety- "When you get a treatment, you are allowing your body to "practice relaxing'."

Because Acupuncture can so quickly activate the parasympathetic response and boost circulation in general, it is a powerful adjunct therapy to support mental health-Whether for anxiety, depression, grief, or addiction. Powerful and gentle at the same time.

Zen, please: Demand for mental health services surges during pandemic 2020 has been an exceptionally hard year for many on a mental front. How has COVID-19 changed the mental health landscape?

While they each have their differences, they all have similar benefits to the mind, body and face. โซธCosmetic treatments consist of body + facial points. They treat pain and stress, and address internal imbalances. โซธThe added benefits include softening of expression lines, relaxing facial tension, reducing inflammation & fluid storage in the face, increasing blood flow and brightness, & stimulating collagen growth & cell renewal.
