100 Years… And Counting

Would you like to live to be 100? You would be surprised at how many people would answer “no” to that question. Many people are in such poor health that it is a physical and emotional struggle to get through each day, let alone an entire century. It doesn’t have to be that way. Actually, if we are living properly, enjoying the rich quality of life that we are entitled to, we should all be thrilled to live to 100! In fact, the hard part should be figuring out how to squeeze all of our goals and accomplishments into such a relatively short period of time. continue reading »

TuiNa Massage in Naples Florida

Experience a TuiNa Massage in Naples Florida Today!

If you are thinking about getting massage in Naples, you might want to consider trying TuiNa. TuiNa is the form of Asian bodywork therapy that most closely resembles conventional western massage. Many of the techniques are similar between the two styles, the big difference is the intent. The intention of a Swedish massage is relaxation and the intention of TuiNa is to heal an area of imbalance in the body. Tui means “to push” and na means “to pluck” and dates back to 1700 BC. TuiNa is usually a bit more aggressive and works on a deep muscular level as well as the energetic level of the body. TuiNa uses the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to balance the energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), of the body in order to relieve pain and reverse illness. continue reading »

Hurt in an auto accident? Acupuncture and massage can help

The unthinkable has happened. You were involved in an auto accident. The full extent of your injuries may not be apparent for several days after the initial impact. You may have whiplash from a rear end collision. You may have low back, hip, leg or knee pain from the force used to apply the brakes. You may have headaches from the muscle spasm resulting from the collision. If this has happened to you, acupuncture and massage can help.

Usually, when you are involved in a car accident you either go to the emergency room or to a medical doctor. These doctors have an important role in giving you a treatment plan, ordering imaging, referrals to other practitioners, and pharmaceutical drugs for pain and muscle relaxation. Sometimes, you will be referred for chiropractic care. If your treatment plan stops here, your recovery could be slow and painful. continue reading »

Insomnia & Acupuncture

Do you have trouble getting a good night sleep?

At my clinic in Naples, Florida, Acupuncture & Natural Health Solutions, one of the most common complaints I hear from my patients is that they have difficulty sleeping. You hear it all the time. For good health, eat well, exercise and get plenty of rest. What do you do if you are one of the many that cannot sleep or do not feel rested after a night of restless sleep? Many people find themselves reaching for pharmaceuticals or over the counter medications to combat the insomnia they are experiencing. Unfortunately, the use of these medications can lead to unwanted side-effects, dependency on the medication or even addiction. The good news is that chronic insomnia can be treated effectively with acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is a side-effect free, non-dependent, natural cure for insomnia. continue reading »
