8ba1521b-fd46-47e3-a90e-15700618f1a6Greetings and happy summer.  Now that summer has “unofficially” arrived, people are enjoying the great outdoors like we had a LONG winter!  Winter has its benefits and blessings, but this one just seemed to keep going and going.  There was a collective groan as snow kept coming even into April.  Now, we have shifted into hot weather, with what feels like a very brief spring.

Are you taking good care of yourself?  You know, the basics, like plenty of water to hydrate you as you play outside, and go in and out of air conditioning, regular healthy meals that include lots of delicious fresh (preferably organic) veggies and enough rest to work and play hard the next day.  Of course, there is always sun screen to apply and reapply and maybe even a hat to help add to the protection layer.  Your skin is sensitive, and it has been a long winter!

We are now “officially” into allergy season, and there seems to be more people sneezing with runny noses and eyes in the grocery store. Have you noticed?  Or was that you trying not to share?   If you need help with allergies, I am more than happy to work with you.  This is the perfect time to get some help with allergies, insomnia or chronic pain, or a tune up acupuncture treatment.  Let’s strengthen your immunity and resistance to better avoid the dreaded summer cold.  We can work together so you are better able to avoid the some of the discomforts you’d rather skip.

Here’s a quick tip for headache relief:

hold, press or massage the fleshy area between your thumb and index finger with the other thumb and index finger.  It may be sensitive or even a bit achy, so don’t overdo it.  Switch to the other hand after 30 seconds to a minute or so, and repeat a few times.  And of course, drink some water; headaches often show up when we are not well hydrated.

In the meantime, stay cool, keep smiling and enjoy the best, healthiest summer possible!
