What is Sports Acupuncture?

What is Sports Acupuncture?

Not just for athletes, sports acupuncture is for anyone with musculoskeletal pain. Maybe you or someone you know has an injury from sports or work, repetitive strain, or something else.  Maybe you’ve been told, “We’ve done all we can do for you.” Well, don’t give up yet.  

What’s missing from many conventional approaches is identifying the root cause of the problem before offering treatment. At White Magnolia, we combine the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine with western anatomical assessment to treat at the source of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

Wishing you good health,

Welcome Dr. Jeannie Dairo!

Dear friends,

Dr. Jeannie Dairo, Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist

We’re thrilled to introduce you to Dr. Jeannie Dairo, the newest member of the White Magnolia family. And she has a mission: to help others discover Chinese medicine’s tools for deep healing, and looking at the whole picture, not just individual aches and pains.

Jeannie considered becoming a physician, but became frustrated with the limited options of Western medicine when she helped care for two sick relatives and suffered from chronic hormonal problems herself. “None of us were getting any healing, and it was a runaround until you get to a dead end,” she says.

In addition, the unexpected loss of a loved on sent her into a spiral of profound grief, followed by shingles, frozen shoulder, stomach upset and foggy brain. She decided to try acupuncture. “After being stuck for a long time, acupuncture finally put me in a state where I could deal with everything I was going through.”

You’ll get to know even more about Jeannie if you click on the fun video below.

Healthy Foods for Fall

traditional chinese medicine foods for fall

The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.

As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading »

Five Reasons to Get Acupuncture for Low Back Pain

Statistics show eight out of 10 people will experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading »
