La Isla Del Encanto February 1, 2018

Posting By Jorge Mejia, AP, DOM It has been a little over a month since I returned from a week of acupuncture service in Puerto Rico as part of an effort organized by Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) , an organization that provides disaster relief, recovery and support for communities affected by disasters, human conflict, environmental devastation, poverty and social injustice.

Dr. Jorge is Going to Puerto Rico November 19, 2017

Posting By Jorge Mejia AP, DOM In the past two years, I experienced my first two hurricanes and made it through relatively unscathed but unfortunately many in Puerto Rico cannot say the same. Hurricane Maria left behind an unparalleled level of devastation and to this day, months after the hurricane, most of the island lacks the basic resources it needs to recover. On December 13th I will be traveling to Puerto Rico with the organization Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) to offer…

Which is why we know you are going to just LOVE what we have brewing…

A Costly Mistake (and how to avoid it) August 10, 2015

I remember my very first allergy attack. I was 11 years old and playing around with a potpourri ball in my bedroom, the kind that you stick in a dresser drawer to keep socks from smelling like….well, socks. I took a big whiff of that potpourri and then sneezed about 45 times in a row. It was silly, shocking and (dare I say) a little fun, so I sniffed it again. It wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had. Over…

Lend me your ear…no really July 13, 2015

By Jorge Mejia AP, DOM How many times have we heard the phrase “it’s all connected…?” If you stopped to really ponder this notion it can be overwhelming to think about how physically we are made up of the same stuffs as stars and that the molecules we inhale and exhale will be inhaled and exhaled by everyone around us and eventually on the other side of the planet!
