Not a totally boring blog about acupuncture, breathwork, energy medicine, and self-healing

At my office in Manhattan (Flatiron / Union Square / Chelsea), I see patients who are dealing with chronic pain (back pain, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain, hip pain, and ankle pain), headaches + migraines, digestive issues (IBS, colitis), infertility, stress, insomnia, PMS, women's health, and autoimmune conditions (Lyme, Hashimoto's, thyroid conditions, and many more).

The deal with ear seeds

Aimée Derbes

If you’ve checked in with my Instagram lately, you’ve probably heard me mention ear seeds more than a few times. Ear seeds win as my all time favorite noninvasive, low tech treatment modality to support people with a wide variety of health issues in between acupuncture sessions and as a standalone modality.

I receive a lot of questions about ear seeds (if you’re not even sure what they are yet, read on) and have been working all year on a comprehensive resource for you all — I wrote a whole book, actually. But today, I’d like to share what ear seeds are, where they come from, how they work, and which points you can start using today.

Why I did an astrology cleanse

Aimée Derbes

At the beginning of last month, I did my usual check in with a well-known astrologer's horoscopes. This time, the gist of it was, and I'm only being slightly dramatic, "Your month is going to totally suck and be filled with setbacks in every area of your life, so good luck with that." I got to the end and wondered, "wtf was that?! Am I just supposed to sit around anticipating disaster for the next 30 days?"

I decided then that it was time for a cleanse -- an astrology cleanse. No more input from other people about what's going on in my universe and my experience. Only taking in info from the ultimate expert on me -- my own intuition. And, wouldn’t you know it, July turned out to be amazing.

"What should I eat?"

Aimée Derbes

“What should I eat?"

This question is a common one in my healing arts practice. The people who come to me (maybe you are one of them!) are highly motivated to feel better, and they want to know everything possible about how to create sustainable healing. They know that food matters, but maybe aren't sure what's best for them and their health issues, or maybe they don't quite believe it'll really make a difference.

This is one of my very favorite topics. Here, I'm offering some places to start your own inquiry into food and mealtimes. Let me know how it goes!

If I can take care of myself, then so can you.

Aimée Derbes

With apologies for any bubble-bursting, amazing health is not going to just magically happen to you. I’m so sorry. While your body is almost miraculously designed to preserve health, the modern world is filled with all kinds of toxic nonsense that our bodies are working hard to keep at bay, and it simply doesn’t have the energy to do everything.

How we spend our days determines our long term health, and also what kind of reserves we have in place when we’re faced with an unexpected health issue. But you don’t need to completely overhaul your entire life -- some tweaks and adjustments to the little things can provide so much support for your health!
