Wellness Tips:

My top 3 Chinese Herbal Formulas to have on hand with the changing season: 
#1 Immune boost with medicinal mushrooms. My favorite medicinal mushroom blend is a product called Tri Forte which has Reishi, Cordyceps and Shiitake. I recommend a daily dose to keep the “qi shield” strong and fortified. 
#2 If you find yourself with a stiff neck, itchy ears-nose-eyes or throat, clear watery congestion and/or an aversion to cold- Jing Fang Bai Du San
2-3 days of this formula, and plenty of rest can nip your cold in the bud. 
#3 If you have any sort of infection (bacterial or viral) with signs of heat; burning sore throat, fever, yellow nasal congestion… Chuan Xin Lian is my favorite. 
I have listed the Pinyin names so you can locate these formulas at the local health food store. I am also more than happy to set you up with your Wellness First Aid Kit.


I send each of you blessings of ease, grace and wellness as we welcome autumn, if I can be of assistance to you in any way I look forward to hearing from you.

Cornerstones of the Year ...

The two solstices and equinoxes are the four cornerstones of the year. These periods open doorways to subtle realms and self discovery. This year's autumnal equinox occurs at 2:04 AM Pacific time Friday September 23rd. Join us for the Sound Blessing to Celebrate the Equinox or come on in for a Resonation Acupuncture Equinox Treatment!

Late Summer and Fall... Gifts of the Earth and Metal Elements

As the day and night move into balance we are called to move inward from summer’s yang outward energy. This season is a mixture of nourishment and letting go. The Chinese Five Elements associated with this time of year are Earth and Metal. Earth is associated with the season of late summer and Metal is associated with autumn. These two elements blend together to create a “satisfied melancholy”. As you reflect back on the joy and fun of summer there is a gratitude for all the blessings. It is a wonderful time to stop and take stock of all the beauty, abundance and grace that supports you and to also embrace letting go of the summer allowing the harvest to peak and the energy to die back. As we move into fall, the days grow shorter and the qi moves inward in preparation for winter’s depth. There is a paradox to “embrace letting go” but this is the mysterious and beautiful dance of this seasonal blend. For example, after receiving a beautiful meal into your body it is essential for proper health to assimilate the nutrients and let go of the rest. There is a natural flow to receiving and releasing. We are dancing with the energies of the elements all the time and by bringing their gifts into our awareness we are aligning with the deeper calling and cycles of nature allowing for self expression and liberation. If you would like support in this seasonal transition I encourage you come in, I would love to help set you up for a healthy, easeful fall and winter.
