“When I first began working with Meredith, I quickly learned that she knew infinitely more about fertility acupuncture treatments than any other practitioner I had worked with. Her extensive knowledge helped me to learn what to expect- not only while in her office, but when working with my doctors.… Read the rest
I came to Meredith and Kim for treatment of a pinched nerve. The ensuing stiffness and pain from the affected nerve caused systemic stiffness which made it difficult to run or move. Since receiving treatment (only 3 total visits between Kim and Meredith so far!), nearly all the stiffness in my legs and neck has completely dissipated, resulting in increased flexibility and dramatically less pain.… Read the rest

Migraines. Stress. Migraines. Fatigue. Migraines. Just about every single day I experienced these issues, often to debilitating extents. And I’d tried everything from counseling to massage to pills, but none of it worked. When I finally got tired of feeling like a pharmacy I took a good look at my needle-phobic self and decided “What the heck?”, it definitely can’t be any worse and scanned the phone book and web for acupuncturists in my area.… Read the rest

We’re confident that you’ve heard of acupuncture, but do you know where it comes from?
The study and practice of acupuncture and acupressure have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years and is an ancient healing technique.

Chinese medicinal clinical studies have suggested that using acupuncture as a preventative approach to colds and flu can reduce the incidence of upper respiratory tract infection and shorten the duration of the illness. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine work by rebalancing the body’s systems, regulating the body’s healing energies, and enhancing the immune system.
Even though germs, bacteria, and viruses are everywhere—in the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink—according to Chinese medical theory, they do not cause disease. Illness occurs when our Wei Qi and our meridian organ systems are weak and out of balance. When this occurs it creates a hospitable for germs, bacteria, and viruses to thrive, leading to a cold, the flu, or worse. continue reading

Why do some people always catch a cold, and others don’t?
Viruses, germs, and bacteria are everywhere. They are in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink, but not all of them are bad or harmful.

The cells, tissues, and organs that comprise it help repel foreign invaders like harmful bacteria, parasites and other microbes that can cause infections. Disorders of the immune system range from everyday annoyances like mild seasonal allergies to serious illnesses like leukemia. Stress, lack of sleep and other common conditions can contribute to a weakened immune system, which can make you vulnerable to infections. continue reading
