Changes at Jing

I am excited to announce a shift in clinical focus beginning December 2012. I was recently named the Louisville Veterans Administration Medical Center’s first Doctor of Nursing Practice in the Mental Health and Behavioral Science Services, and will be helping our heroes throughout the VA Hospital.

What this means for Jing is restructuring into a more focused practice. We now specialize solely in mind-body issues that can be treated with acupuncture, oriental medicine, psychotherapy, herbs, nutrition, pharmaceuticals, and other integrative healing strategies. With an emphasis on pain management and emotional wellness, Jing will only accept new patients seeking treatment for mind-body conditions, and will continue to see established patients for any new or current health condition.

I am grateful to those of you who have entrusted me to facilitate health and healing over the years, and I remain committed to delivering premium integrative services through 2013 and beyond. Beginning December 3rd, 2012, I will be scaling back my clinical hours at Jing. Online appointment scheduling will continued to be offered through Genbook, and the tentative schedule through January 2013 will be Monday and Wednesday 5:30pm-8:30pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.

I look forward to working with all of you through the holiday season and into the new year.

Gua Sha vs. Graston

The Acupuncture profession absoloutly allowed Gua Sha to be repackaged and reallocated to PTs and DCs. After reviewing extensive research and practice updates at the Pacific Symposium this weekend with Dr. Arya Nielsen, PhD, I realize I have been under-utilizing this powerful modality. Get ready!

Acupressure for Cancer Treatment Support

While breast cancer awareness month may be over, the battle is not bound by dates on a calendar. Here is a small self-care primer I presented a few years ago on acupressure points to increase immunity and decrease side effects from treatment. Enjoy!
