Now that fall is upon us and we enter the month of November, this is a great time of year to slow down, look inward, and reflect on what we are grateful for. I personally have been feeling incredibly grateful for this amazing community that surrounds us here in Asheville. We have such a vibrant town. One that supports small businesses, values local food, and encourages people to get active and live a healthy lifestyle.
Out of my gratitude for this strong community that we have, I want to give back. I believe that healthy individuals create a healthier community. When we are free of pain and illness, we have more energy to support those around us.
So, here are several ways in which you can receive acupuncture at a reduced cost for the month of November:
Thank you for making this community what it is. Now, I encourage you to give back to this community in your own way, because as said in the Tao Te Ching, "the heart that gives, gathers".

It's that time again....It's the first Tuesday of the month and for today's #TeaTimeTuesday we are discussing the benefits of the lovely honeysuckle flower (Flos Lonicerae), also known as Jin Yin Hua in Chinese.
Honeysuckle flowers always seem to bring back nostalgic memories of my childhood. When its fragrance wafts through my windows this time of year, a vivid image of playing in the creeks, picking honeysuckles and sucking out the sweet nectar always comes to mind.
What you may not know is that this invasive species was actually introduced to the US by Chinese immigrants in the mid-1800's. Knowing that it could flourish easily, it was used as a reliable and accessible herbal remedy for symptoms of the common cold.
Today, in Chinese herbalism we still utilize the flower of the honeysuckle plant to clear heat, resolve toxicity, cool the blood and alleviate thirst. Its sweet, cooling and lightweight nature guides it to the upper body, clearing heat from the lungs and stomach. This tiny flower has been shown to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, which is why it is so commonly used for febrile conditions. It is used to treat the early stages of a fever, sore throat, headache, thirst, perspiration as well as dermatological sores and abscesses. Who would have thought that this fragrant little flower was so powerful!
