Long time no talk!

Hi!  Apologies for the lag time since my last post. You may be wondering what’s going on at Anatomy Acupuncture these days and here’s your update:

I’ve been trying to keep cool in Portland’s thus far hot summer weather, if you are too stay tuned for some at home tips to stay cool and collected in the heat!

Nonsense Dance Company closed out their 6th season with a fabulous show at the Dolores Winningstad theater. The dancers were strong, beautiful and emotionally moving.  It is such a pleasure to be able to work with these talented artists and I am honored to have been a sponsor of the company the past 3 seasons!  The dancers have grown so much, it is such a delight to see!

In other clinic news I have been treating a lot of numbness and tingling lately – really successfully! If you or someone you know suffers from these symptoms – you don’t have to, Anatomy Acupuncture can help!

In my ever continuing quest to deepen my education and learn more so I can help you heal faster and move better, I am currently en-route to the Functional Movement Summit.  While there I will find out more about assessing and correcting dysfunctional movement patterns – and I can’t wait to see how this will inform my treatments and integrate it into my practice.  Among other awesome speakers on the list, I am excited to learn from Gray Cook in person.  Should be an awesome week! I’ll be sharing updates and tidbits on a href=”http://www.twitter.com/anatomyacu”twitter/a and a href=”http://www.facebook.com/anatomyacu”facebook/a throughout – so check back!

That’s what we’re up to – how is your summer treating you? are you doing to heal faster and move better?  I’d love to know!

“Death was briefly summarized as the separation of body and soul. For some death and everything that happens after is tied up in religious beliefs. For others what will happen after life is taken from fairy tales or story books read as children. Most believe death is dark and grisly. Some think there is nothing after this life. I’m not sure anyone will really understand what death is until they have experienced it themselves.

Xibalba is one soul’s internal struggle to navigate through all of these religious and secular beliefs. It is a tussle to find peace with a life passed and what was left behind so the soul can accept the end and move to what is waiting after. “

Do you experience Barbie-foot-itis*?

If you’ve ever experienced numbness, coldness and some loss of function1 in your foot  - you know, barbie-foot-itis* - you’ll want to check out UltraU’s interview with me below:

Last month I chronicled my frustrations with numbness in my foot after a race. I called my numb, tingling and cold foot that felt like plastic my Barbie foot. I was trying to make light of the fact that I could barely control my foot, running felt like I was wearing strange plastic heels and I couldn’t feel a thing.  I went to Alexis at Anatomy Acupuncture to see if she could help. Now that my Barbie foot-itis is GONE, I wanted to share a bit about it from her perspective and introduce you to the idea of Sports Acupuncture as another tool in your body work toolkit… 
-Dana Katz, Ultrarunner, Founder/Coach at UltraUFitness

To see what she asked me, how I answered, and what acupuncture can do for endurance athletes read on at the UltraU Blog : 3 Questions with Sports Acupuncturist Alexis Goldstein, L.Ac., C.SMA – UltraU.

*Barbie-foot-itis is not a technical term, but it probably should be.  All neologistic rights belong to Dana Katz.  Also her Hazard Scale is right on.  Check it out.  Follow her blog.  And if you like running really far, she can help you with that, too.
