I believe I owe a clarification. It was pointed out to me that the last blog didn’t accurately reflect who I am and the work I do as an acupuncturist in Boulder.
Let me explain. When I was 15, I had Bell’s Palsy - half of my face was paralyzed for several weeks, recovering slowly over months. I had to tape my eye shut at night to sleep, food would dribble out of my mouth when I ate, but worse of all was feeling distorted.
Here we are.
Enjoying the beautiful October sunlight in Boulder, CO. Embracing the magic of the changing colors. Pulling out warmer clothes and feeling their embrace, much like the hug of a friend we haven’t seen in some time.
We’re supporting the emergence of a bigger community of people who live with reverence and love and in beautiful and joyful relationships.

The foundation of health according to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is Flow. Acupuncturists have a saying "Where there's pain, there's no flow; where there's no flow, there's pain." This is true whether you live in Boulder, CO or Kathmandu.
In a nutshell, acupuncture promotes flow.
