 This time of the year, over-indulgence is a popular topic. You can find plenty of magazine articles with tips on how to not over-eat at holiday parties, how to not over-spend on presents, and how to not get over-stressed about the holiday chaos. But I don’t often see any articles about how to avoid drinking too much and/or how to deal with the consequences of drinking too much.

 In my continual quest to learn more and more about the body I recently took a course called Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT™) in Vancouver. It was a 3 day course that presented an amazing new way of looking at the body, how it functions and what to do when dysfunctions arise. Developed by David Wienstock, L.M.T. in collaboration with several peers in 1985, NKT™ addresses the causes of dysfunction in the body, not the symptoms.

I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the book above for some time now, and am happy to write that it doesn't disappoint. Don't let the tongue-in-cheek title throw you.

As a massage therapist, I am continually looking for ways for people to maintain and further improve the quality of their soft-tissue outside of my treatment room.

Pomegranates are one of those items in the grocery store that catch my eye but typically don't make it into my shopping cart.  Just too much fuss for a bunch of little seeds!

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Jing refers to our genetic blueprint. Jing is passed from parents at conception. In order to increase fertility and pass along strong Jing to our children, a healthy lifestyle is important. Among other things, eating healthy food, getting enough rest and managing stress play roles in supporting Jing. Jing is stored in the kidneys. In Chinese medicine, the kidneys are associated with the reproductive system. Therefore, when thinking of foods to support your fertility (i.e., to impact the quality of your eggs or your sperm) nurture your Jing.
