Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death in the world and is essentially a deficiency condition. In nearly every person it is an unnecessary, preventable and reversible lifestyle-based condition. Improvements in nutrition, social/relational health, and physical activity are safer and more effective than pharmaceutical interventions.

A recent study adds to evidence that acupuncture is a viable healthcare option for a range of conditions and proves how effective acupuncture is with relieving both chronic and acute pain. As acupuncture becomes more mainstream, perhaps we can expect to see a paradigm shift of skeptics to believe in a medicine that has helped heal people for over 5,000 years. Click here to read more.
A Student Perspective on Dry Needling
A licensed acupuncturist must obtain a degree/diploma from an ACAOM-accredited college, pass the national certification exams administered by the NCCAOM and perform a minimum of 1,500 hours of acupuncture. To perform dry needling, the use of a solid needle for therapy of muscle pain, one only need to practice for 24-50 hours.

Staying Balanced During the Holidays
It happens every year. We get busy with holiday preparations and forget to take care of ourselves. Acupuncture can help us stay healthy and balanced but if you're limited on resources, there are alternatives to handle holiday stress. Annie Porter, LAc, PIHMA alumna and owner of Spirit Tree Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, recommends spending time outdoors as a way to de-stress during this busy time of year.
