In Season 2, Episode 20 of the "Positive Health Vibes" podcast, Christina Wood, LMBT at Harbour Salon and Spa was interviewed about the healing benefits of massage therapy and mentioned "acupressure", which is a form of treatment that stems from acupuncture. This calm, brief and informative Acupuncture Associates video describes what acupuncture is. So, for more information about โ€œacupressureโ€, you might want to consider asking โ€œWilmington's Best Acupuncturistโ€!

Today, we remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country at Pearl Harbor ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

On December 7, 1941, the United States Navy base in Hawaii was attacked by Japanese bombers. More than 2,000 people were killed and more than 1,000 were wounded. It was one of the most devastating moments in American history.

As we slowly turn to colder days and longer nights, we enter into the time of Yin, as described by Chinese Medicine.

It is the best time to rest, introspect and nourish your body and your mind.

This is also the perfect opportunity to reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and nature.

Yin has no beginning or end. It comes in cycles just like everything else in nature, but unlike Yang where everything happens quickly, there is a slower pace to Yin.

The best way to embrace this time of year is by following your instincts on what you need to do for yourself so that you can feel better when spring comes around again!



Time and aging do not wait for anyone, but some help can be given ๐Ÿ™Œ

The autumn season is a time of change. As the weather cools, leaves fall from trees and we begin to prepare for winter. But nature is more than just a metaphor for the seasons - it's an inspiration for how we can live our lives.

Explore how you can draw inspiration from nature to help you navigate your own life's changes. Here are three ways to do so:

๐Ÿ Take your time to relax, recharge and rest - let go of what doesn't serve you to make space for the good.

๐Ÿ Take time to reflect on what truly matters most in your life so that you can focus on those things during this changing season.

๐Ÿ Be present in your surroundings, rather than rushing through your day without noticing anything around you at all (and missing out on beautiful moments along the way).



Happy Labor Day!

In , a practitioner can garner quite a bit of information about you and your condition, simply by taking a look at your tongue.

When your practitioner looks at your tongue, they are looking at the shape, color, size, coating and positioning or its movement.

The shape and size of the tongue tend to address the status of fluids in the body, whereas tongue color is a good indicator of the overall nature of what is going on in the body.

A coating on the tongue also provides valuable information to your practitioner. The thickness of a coating is an indicator of the severity of the condition being treated.

Autumn is a beautiful season of change, a time when we can see new beginnings and opportunities.

Here are a few tips to keep this fall:

1. Moisturize your skin. When the temperature drops, our skin tends to get drier. Make sure to moisturize your skin often to prevent those painful cracks and other possible skin conditions.

2. Make a plan. During colder months we tend to become more isolated and less active. Making a schedule of staying active and sticking to it before it gets cold might help you be persistent when the weather changes.

3. Give your immune system a boost. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are a great way of helping your body cope with the upcoming changes in weather. If you'd like to know more, please reach out - our Acupuncturist is happy to discuss personalized options that would best fit your needs.

Honey is an amazing substance, and has been used in for centuries.

A study published in Pharmacognosy Research in 2017 called ๐‡๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ฒ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐‡๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก: ๐€ ๐‘๐ž๐ฏ๐ข๐ž๐ฐ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐‘๐ž๐œ๐ž๐ง๐ญ, ๐‚๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ข๐œ๐š๐ฅ ๐‘๐ž๐ฌ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐œ๐ก highlights the many reasons why honey is a valuable medicinal substance that should be used in clinical settings today.

According to the authors of the study, honey displays antioxidant, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antiproliferative (inhibits the growth of tumorous cells), and antimetastatic properties.

What is more, previous scientific studies demonstrated that honey helps treat diabetes, eye disorders, asthma, throat problems, parasitic infections, wounds, hepatitis, lethargy, dizziness, and ulcers.
