Life After Birth

Expecting mothers these days, encouraged maybe by their friends or doula, create a birth plan while they are pregnant. If that's true for you, are you also thinking about an after-birth plan? Currently, the spotlight is trained more on what to expect at your birth, and how to prepare for it to increase your chances [...]

Trigger Point Acupuncture Explained

If you've talked to more than one acupuncturist, you're probably aware that there are quite a few different styles and traditions of acupuncture serving as a basis of treatment.

A wide spectrum of mood and anxiety disorders affects almost one in five adults in the United States every year, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (some experts think the number might be much higher).

No one's going to live forever, but we all want to live as long as possible while in good health. You may be fatalistic and think that it's all in your genes—nothing you can do about that! That's actually only half the story. How we live our lives has a big impact on our health [...]

Birth Coach and Ally: Your Doula

Many expectant parents are now engaging a doula as childbirth approaches. This can be a great choice, especially for first-time mothers or those without local family support. So, what's a doula? A doula is a professionally trained birth coach. Most doulas are women who have given birth themselves and have also attended many more births [...]

Focus on Shoulders

Shoulders are a hot topic for climbers. Countless rock climbers run into trouble with their shoulders early in their climbing careers, after many years of climbing hard, or once they're older and no longer training regularly. When I'm in the climbing gym, I always like to observe the postures and movement patterns of the people [...]

From conception to birth a lot of changes occur in your body while your baby is growing and getting ready to meet you. Many women are feeling great throughout most of their pregnancy, some experience minor twinges, yet quite a few develop discomforts at different times that can really take the joy out of this [...]
