Did you ever have a massage but didn’t get what you expected? It was too deep or it was too light for you?
Massages are not something you experience every day, and when you decide to try it you want it to be an amazing experience. Especially when you make a spa gift certificate to someone who never had a massage.
So many types of massage and you have to choose only one...

Living in North America, we are conditioned to the idea that one doesn’t go to the doctor until one is sick. For western medicine, this makes plenty of sense, but the same can’t be said for eastern medicine. Oriental Medicine is effective when you are sick, but it is most effective when you’re not...
Editor´s Note: This article parallels one of my favorite sayings which is, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Dr. Hyun K. Lee eloquently describes the importance of preventing disease and maintaining good health through regular acupuncture treatments. He explains the difference between Eastern and Western medical treatments, and how acupuncture can keep you functioning at your optimum level.
Many people may think that alternative medicine is a relatively new practice but types of alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, have been around for over 2,000 years...
Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: "Medicine" has been around probably since the dawn of man. Over the ages it has evolved into a profit-making business, where the bottom-line often seems more important than healing. With ever more pills to "cure" us (I was amazed that we now have a prescription drug to enhance eyelashes --- really?!?) but with side effects often more dire than the original "disease" (I fail to understand how a pill that "treats" depression "may" cause suicidal thoughts --- wouldn't that be contra-indicated?), more people are turning to "alternative medicine." That's really a misnomer since it is Western-based medicine is "alternative" given that we describe as "alternative" was used long before Big Pharma. And isn't homeopathy's theory (i.e., "like cures like") the basis of vaccines (i.e., introduce an inert or weakened strain of the virus to let the body "kill" it)?

There are some days that it’s so loud, I’m afraid she’d going to expire on the spot. We’ve spent lots of time talking about this cough...

Laughing is ingrained in us from birth. Infants begin smiling during the first weeks of life and laugh out loud within months of being born. Laughter becomes an important part of our daily lives from then on. So why is laughter so important and what does it do for us?...
Editor's Note: Oh the power of laughter! This article explains the affects of stress on the body, mind, and immune system. Laughter, along with acupuncture, are shown to have the same physiological responses on the body which can help manage stress. Laughter may be just what the doctor ordered.
