Health Care vs. Sick Care – What Do You Need?

It has been said that in ancient times, Chinese physicians were paid only when their patients were in good health. This gave them the incentive for preventative care and explains why Chinese Medicine was designed for health maintenance – to keep you from not getting sick or in pain.

Compare that to the current health care model in most countries.  It is sick care and designed largely to fix a problem once you already have it.  This is the model most of us are familiar with.

As my teacher said, “Better to have a stool with three legs rather than two”.  This means that we can utilize the strengths of each model for optimum health.  Traditional Chinese approach for daily wellness, and a conventual Western approach using all the updated scientific technology for acute and emergency problems (car accident, major surgery, cancer, etc..).

The big question is, which healthcare do you need?

Chinese New Year 2022 – Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year 2022 - Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China for good reason. Each new year brings new energies and opportunities. The celebration begins the day after the first new moon between January 21 and February 20 each year and lasts until the following full moon. These 2 weeks are a time of welcoming and aligning with the new energies. This year, the Chinese New Year falls on Feb 1st and festivities continue through Feb 15th, 2022. Each year has a corresponding element and animal of the Chinese zodiac.

This is the year of the water-tiger year that holds a lot of promise for an exciting, productive year. This indicates a new beginning, a fresh start, and it’s a year made for bold action. The Tiger is known for its power, daring, and ability to do everything on a grand scale. 

This water-tiger year is in gear to be a faster-paced, more passionate year after a slower year of the Ox (2021) and a very challenging year of the Rat (2020). The tiger has been sleeping, awaiting his time for action. 2022 has great potential to be a year of change because of the energy of the tiger: brave, self-assured and ready to pounce. Individually we might be inspired to embark on new adventures, such as travel or moving, or starting a new business. Collectively, there may be an energetic shaking off of stagnation brought on by the past couple years of the pandemic. It will be a year of exploring new ideas, and not shying away from challenges. If energy is not allowed to flow (individually and/or collectively) there may be some restlessness or unpredictable behaviors. It is also important to balance the aggressive energy of the tiger with times of rest. Even tigers take cat naps. This is a water year, so the yin energy of the water can help to balance the fierce fiery nature of the tiger. continue reading »

Happy Holidays! Best Wishes to a Healthy 2022.

We wish everyone a Happy and Healthy 2022.  Do your best to improve/maintain you goals in life.  What you do in your daily life (managing diet, sleep, stress) can be like medicine and this is true Healthcare.  In ancient China, physicians were paid only when their patients were healthy.  The alternative to this is Sickcare – waiting until you are sick to get treatment.  The choice is yours.

Remember too that developing favorable qualities (being kind, honest and virtuous) does not require any special education or affluence – it just requires daily choices.  It can be difficult, but again the choice is really yours.  Good luck!

Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine Day is observed annually on October 24.  This is part of an effort designed to increase public awareness of the progress, promise, and benefits of acupuncture medicine.  If you or anyone you know have benefited from acupuncture,  please help spread the word.  By doing so, you pass on the benefits to someone else who may be reluctant, and as a result, continue to suffer from their specific health concerns.   Thank you!
