February 16, 2018 marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year.  This year is represented by our beloved Dog.

The Year of the Dog occurs every 12 years: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1984, 1996, 2018.

  • Dog people are loyal friends.  According to ancient Chinese traditions…
  • Dog’s auspicious gifts are unconditional love and loyalty to all living things.
  • Dogs are trustworthy, but find it difficult to trust others in return.
  • They can be moody, needing time alone to revitalize themselves.

This year is the Earth Dog Year, it is good time for lifestyle changes.

This is the year to consolidate our achievements and renew motivation!

Many people make New Year’s Resolutions, then lose sight of their goals or become discouraged.

Thank goodness for the Chinese New Year!

Having a second New Year gives us a second opportunity to re-commit to our health goals.  We  have plenty of options to help you along the way.  Today, I wanted to share how Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Can Help!

Acupuncture and TCM can help you achieve your health goals. It relieves stress and anxiety, lessens irritability and restlessness, curbs cravings, and increases relaxation.

Additionally, it reduces pain and helps with arthritis. Do your New Year Resolutions include better health?  Talk to me about how to reach that goal.

Happy Chinese New Year!
