Ever feel as though something is just “off” — but you can’t figure out what it is? There is nothing physically wrong, and on paper you are perfectly healthy. You can’t quite pinpoint what it is, but you are certain there is something just not right. You are not crazy, the “something off” feeling is likely due to an energetic blockage or imbalance in your body. It is actually quite common and can be treated. Today we’re sharing about the Chakra System, which is the best way to understand how energy flows within the body. Our universe is made up of energetic vibrations, so it shouldn’t be hard to believe that our bodies are also made of a similar energy….


If your Saturday mornings have been filled with the familiar sound of golf clubs clinking together as your man departs the house, then you know: spring has arrived and golf season has begun! But, with golf season comes an afternoon return accompanied by the inevitable stiff-hipped walk after 18 holes. This is a routine many come to know well. Since it is only the start of the season, we’re providing some insight on how to beat the golf swing stiffness this year {especially with the Master’s happening this week!}. Plus, some advice on how you can potentially improve your swing with acupuncture! The Modern Swing Jason Day {1st ranked in the world} has been suffering from a bulging disk during…


With Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day happening this weekend, it’s the perfect time to write a special blog post about connecting with your Inner Goddess — that voice inside of every beautiful woman, the voice telling her who she is, what she needs, and what she wants. My mother would refer to it as “woman’s intuition,” and Shakira refers to it as her “she wolf — but no matter what you nickname her, it’s your Inner Goddess. Having trouble with the concept? Think about your female friends/co-workers/acquaintances, there’s always that one…there’s just something about her. She walks calmly, she seems to be smiling from her cheeks, she looks deep into the eyes of the person she speaks to, she knows…


The holidays have come and gone, but many of us are still feeling sluggish from all of the holiday sweets and beverages…no judgment. Adding the following suggestions to your daily routine is an easy way to get back on track, and also an easy way to keep your liver healthy every day {especially if you feverishly read our Hoboken Happy Hours posts on the reg}! In Chinese Medicine, the Liver is referred to as “The General.” So, like the army, The General is the point of command that keeps everything in check, keeps things moving if you will. When the Liver energy is off balance due to diet, stress, or daily habits, it is hard for the body to stay…


  Walking around uptown Hoboken, there is no mystery that there is something in the water on the west side of the Hudson. Couples are crossing the river, moving from their cozy NYC apartments, to find space and create a family in Hoboken. Proud new mommies and daddies walking slowly with their newborns in strollers, glowing mothers-to-be, and newly walking toddlers greeting daddy coming home from work are in every direction. If you are thinking about starting a family, or you are having difficulty conceiving, acupuncture can assist and support, and I invite you to consider the following. Want to understand why you might be having trouble conceiving or interested in learning more about a healthy pregnancy?  Check out the…


Wednesday, September 23rd marks the first day of autumn, or as I like to think, the first day of the metal season. In Chinese Medicine, each of the five seasons are represented or embodied by one of the five elements; Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water. Autumn is the season of the metal element, and so the way I think of metal relating to autumn is through the harvest. People with metal personalities are the doers, they are the people in our lives who get things done. Looking to hire a new assistant or project manager? Hiring a metal personality will be the best decision you could make! Metal personalities like to make lists, and above all, they love to cross…
