Our New Look!
Did you notice the new look of Old Pueblo Acupuncture? The clinic is growing fast! With that growth comes the need for a new look that will take us into the future to help us sustain this growth. Old Pueblo Acupuncture is built around one important concept: we pay attention to the needs and desires of our clientele to gain their trust, respect, and help them attain a higher level of health and wellness. We spend the time necessary to get to know their experience and needs to personalize their path to feeling better and achieving better health. We are not interested in a one-size-fits-all approach, because we know that everyone is unique. We meet our clientele where they’re at on that path to develop a unique treatment strategy. In light of this and in celebration of Old Pueblo Acupuncture and our new look we are having a re-Grand Opening in May. Watch for further details to come. We’d love to see you there!
American Heart Association Partnership
We are pleased to announce that Old Pueblo Acupuncture is a proud partner of the American Heart Association. This partnership is a first for the AHA Tucson and we are so honored to be the first Acupuncture clinic to establish this relationship. It is a tremendous step towards the integration of Eastern and Western medicine in Tucson. Both have so much to offer the other, but especially for people with heart related conditions that have access to and utilize both.
Together with the Tucson chapter of the American Heart Association, we are building awareness around heart health and prevention, and helping those with heart disease find the resources and solutions they need. Old Pueblo Acupuncture is a great resource as we can help with many types of heart related issues such as: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, poor blood circulation, and stroke recovery. To find out more call us to schedule your free consultation at (520) 722-9101. Or you can find us at this year’s Heart Walk taking place on May 3 at Reid Park. (Find more information here: http://heartwalk.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1111931) We will have an informational booth where we will be happy to answer your questions.
As the Sonoran desert vegetation is invigorated by spring and growing to its full summer glory, so are we coming out of our winter and growing more energetic. In Chinese medicine, springtime is associated with the Liver and Gallbladder. Yang in nature, it is an expressive, growing, and upward moving season. It is also the time to return to a lighter diet and get away from the heavy foods of winter.
For many, spring diets may be the lightest of the year focusing on young plants, fresh greens, sprouts, and other early spring garden treasures. These help invigorate the liver and gallbladder to rid any “heaviness” or toxic buildup from the winter diet. Avoid overly salty and fatty foods as they may inhibit the liver from “it’s spring clean” and weigh down metabolism. Rejoice in Spring and all the joys it has to offer. By the way, have you seen the Palo Verde trees all around Tucson? As of this writing, they are in full, rigorous bloom – beautiful!
