Fall is my favourite season – and I know I'm not alone. Something about the crisp change in the air, the autumn colours and getting back into my cosy sweaters! For me its also the time I start cooking some of my favourite dishes again. Although I love summer's fresh and light meals, I yearn to make a hearty dish that simmers on the stove top all afternoon.

Ever wonder why Acupuncturists always inquire about your sleep? With every new patient I make it a priority to ask about their quality and quantity of sleep. It is important to consider this information even if sleep is not their main issue for coming in (or not even on their radar).

Pain during intercourse or foreplay is also known as dyspareunia. It is surprisingly common among women and may occur at different stages of life for different reasons. In the landmark “Sex in America” survey it was estimated that 20% of women experience dyspareunia. Other estimates are even higher, reporting that up to 3 out of 4 women will experience this type of pain at some time in their lives. Does this affect you and if so, how to find help?

“Time heals all wounds” - except for when they leave a scar. An injury can leave behind a unwelcome scar, and a lasting mark left on the body that can affect a person both physically and emotionally. Thankfully there are natural ways of minimize scarring and even helping reverse the appearance of older scars.

One of the most frequent questions I get is how often to come in for treatments and how this can make a difference to your results. Every person has a different condition and each body may also react differently to acupuncture. However, the one thing that remains constant: more often is usually better in the case of acupuncture.

Affecting an estimated 4-10% of women worldwide, endometriosis is an all too common disease in which cells from the uterus lining begin to grow outside the uterine cavity, usually in the abdominal area. Symptoms vary depending on a number of different factors, but severe pelvic pain is reported by many women suffering from this disease.
