Safer, More Effective Equipment Makes Acupuncture More Efficient

For those massage practices that offer acupuncture therapy, one of the chief concerns is finding equipment that is both cost-effective and safe. The good news today for these practices is that they can find quality equipment without breaking the bank. It's easier than ever to locate acupuncture needles with surgery-grade stainless steel. Likewise, Lierre medical massage tables can turn any practice into a comfortable place for massage clients.

The importance of good acupuncture equipment should go without saying. Companies like Lierre understand this. This is why they spend a tremendous amount of time and money testing their needles before they put those needles on the market. When a massage clinic purchases these needles, they can be confident that they are getting only the best.

Fall is Around the Corner... Think I am Getting Sick

Looks like it is almost that time of year again, where the leaves start to change color, the temperature drops every night and morning. Fall is right around the corner, and I can feel myself coming down with something. I woke up this morning with a terrible sore throat, that seems to have gotten worse as the day went on. I also notice while at work that I had a terrible headache... okay work can be a headache at times, but this was not work related! I also felt like I was having hot flashes... I am pretty sure I had a fever. I am finally home after a long day, and I think I will make it an early night.

Anyone else feeling the change of the seasons and possibly feeling tired and run down... hope I can fight this bug off.

The Love of a Pet

The last two nights in a row my cute fur-baby meowed like there was no tomorrow. He's done this before in the past, but this was the first time in quite a while. At first I thought he was hungry, so I got up and filled his dry food bowl. Still meow, meow, meow... was driving me crazy and keeping me from sleeping. So once again I got up and decided to check to see if his litter-box was dirty... it was clean. So naturally I laid back down to try and sleep. The crazy beast wouldn't give up, and finally started climbing all over me in bed, and smacking me in the face with his cute little paws. WTF... crazy cat has a death wish! I sat up, and suddenly felt a little weird... a little off. I decided to check my blood for blood sugar levels, and realized it was at 3.1! Wow, my fur-baby somehow realized I was possibly in trouble and kept waking me up. It's amazing what pets are capable of, and I'm so glad my baby didn't give up!

Has your pet done anything like this?

My Poor Hand

The last few days has been quite difficult, as I'm not able to use my right hand. I'm right handed, which makes every daily task a challenge. I didn't break it, however, I must of sprained it Friday night. I went bowling with a couple friends, and somehow fucked up my thumb. I guess it's probably common to accidentally injure your hand while bowling, especially if it's something you only do once every couple of years. I had a hell of a time trying to get ready this morning... something as simple as holding a toothbrush, or trying to apply eyeliner was a complete nightmare.

I'm at work trying to type, use the mouse, and write, and my thumb is throbbing with pain. It's a sexy shade of purple and blue, and doubled in size compared to my left hand. Anyone else ever had this happen?

Coconut oil scalp treatment: The route to thick, long & shiny hair

When was the last time you gave your scalp a facial? Yes… you read right. I said when was the last time you gave your scalp a facial? Because, like our face, the scalp is also ‘skin’. And it needs just as much love and care. In fact, hair experts say a good scalp treatment is key to healthy, glossy, sleek strands. And it makes sense: like all other skin on our body, the scalp also needs to breathe. It needs oxygen, moisture and nutrients. And since our hair is rooted in the scalp, it is kind of important!

It seems our grandmothers understood this pretty well. I know mine did – she was regularly brewing up lotions and potions for the skin on top of her head and her hair looked super-gorgeous even at the age of 80. So, I am borrowing a page from her beauty diary – two luscious coconut oil scalp treatments that she would use at least once a month to make her hair thicker, longer and silkier. Both remove product build-up, loosen the hardened sebum (natural oil) that clogs hair follicles, bust dead skin cells and boost circulation.
