This all sounds great — until your allergies arrive — and you’re left reminiscing on all those times you took simply breathing for granted. You may also be experiencing sneezing, congestion, red & itchy eyes, runny nose…not exactly our favorite fall fashion! These symptoms are our body’s attempt to eject the allergens from our system, and while antihistamines & decongestants may be giving you symptomatic relief, it’s not treating the cause!

Author: Jessica Klein – Licensed Acupuncturist at Exhale Central Park South Have you been looking for an outlet to escape the chaos of the city? Acupuncture may be the answer for you! Most people find themselves intrigued when they hear the word acupuncture, but are often unsure whether it’s the right experience for them.

Our goal is to be in balance — too much of anything (bad OR good) can lead to us feeling out of whack. Chinese Medicine will look at your body in terms of yin & yang; two opposing forces that are in a constant dance just hoping to be equals. Simply put: When these two are in balance, Nina Simone’s “I’m Feeling Good” is stuck in our heads on repeat.

Author:Jessica Klein – Licensed Acupuncturist at Exhale Central Park South   Poking yourself with sharp objects might not seem like the best way to relieve stress, but looks can be deceiving! Stress is a part of our everyday lives, but our reaction to these stressors is what determines the course of our future health.   Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) looks at stress from a different perspective than you would find in western medicine. Stress has a direct connection to the energy of your Liver, which functions to promote the smooth circulation of your energy (called qi in TCM) throughout your body.   The Liver qi of the body wants to run wild like a gypsy…Imagine cruising down the highway, taking in the scenery & jamming out to your favorite tunes…and then you hit traffic. You’re not feeling so free spirited anymore, right? Maybe experiencing some anger and frustration?
