Hello lovely readers!
I spent this past week learning a beautiful abdominal massage therapy technique know as, Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®.
When these massage techniques are applied, they guide the internal abdominal organs back into their proper position. The techniques work by relieving congestion and blockages in order to improve flow in the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. This results in improved organ function and therefore improved gynecological, digestive and urinary health.

I recently took a course through Steamy Chick with the lovely acupuncturist/herbalist that works with the company. She had all sorts of wisdom to share in terms of how women can take care of themselves, particularly during their ‘moon time’ (when they’re menstruating). One of my favorite practices offered in the course was making and consuming ‘Moon Juk.’ It’s super easy to make, tastes amazing, is and extremely nourishing for a women to consume during their period.

Another period post, hooray! As a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, I absolutely love working with women’s health. This includes everything from period problems (PMS, pain, irregularity, no period), infertility, pregnancy, post-partum and menopause. I am fascinated by the complexity of the female reproductive system and not just as it relates to being able to having babies, but also as a reflection of overall health for women. Many women that I treat have been prescribed the birth control pill to “regulate” their cycles and to “alleviate” PMS symptoms. You can read more about my thoughts on that here. Women are told that they just have to suffer through pregnancy symptoms, get through postpartum challenges and continue to struggle as their body shifts in to menopause. This is just not the case!
