Last week was the first day of spring. Yahoo! Except for that fact that many people don't feel so hot this time of year.
The flu is -- knock on wood -- mostly behind us. Allergies have not quite exploded yet. So, why do so many of us feel off in the early days of spring?...
Editor´s Note: This is the perfect article for this time of year. The transition between seasons is explained in Chinese medicine theory. The focus of the article is on the liver system, its symptoms of imbalance, and ways to restore that balance so you can enjoy a happy and healthy Spring!

When people arrive at an addiction treatment center, they typically don’t want to be there. They’re agitated and apprehensive, and they doubt whether they even have a problem, especially one that is as bad as their families, employers or the courts believe...
Editor's Note: This is an excellent article explaining five valuable complementary and alternative therapies for people recovering from addictions. Acupuncture, particularly ear acupuncture, is used to combat cravings, reduce stress and withdrawal symptoms, and restores whole body balance. I love how this section showcases research studies and statistics to confirm acupuncture's efficacy for addiction treatments. So fantastic!

For better or for worse, New York is a 24-hour city and anything can be done at any time. Some of us just don't get to bed early enough and have to get up early the next day regardless. Others are so taxed physically, emotionally and spiritually that we have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep or both.
This article will explore sleep issues from both the Western and TCM perspectives and discuss treatments modalities...

You may be a fan of Swedish massage which is always relaxing, but what if you want something a little deeper to really get to the root of your pain.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: What a great documentary. Very eye opening and - of course - I love, love, love that it showcases acupuncture, nutrition and meditation as brilliant adjuncts to classic western treatments because they work!
