Snow is Here!

Posted by admin on Nov 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Well it’s that time again.
Yep. Waynesville has had its first snow. Nothing much to speak of; only about a half inch at my house on Balsam.
However, we will inevitably have much more snow throughout this winter.

OMHC realizes that this will impact patients ability to make scheduled appointments. It is up to you to use your good judgement and not drive if you feel it is unsafe. However, please give as much notice as possible if you must cancel. If you are snowed in the day before, go ahead and let me know so that I can possibly fill that space.

Additionally, I do house calls and have a 4wd vehicle as well as snow chains. If you are in pain, don’t hesitate to ask me about a house call. I charge an additional fee of $20 for in home treatments to cover the added time necessary to drive and set up/break down.

During these cold, snowy days it is more important than ever to take care of yourself, and that includes your acupuncture, herbal formulas, and bodywork. The cold, damp weather makes most peoples aches and pains hurt worse and moxibustion can be an invaluable aid in keeping you pain free this winter.

Please stay safe, warm, and healthy this winter.

Happy Holiday

Posted by admin on Nov 29, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. OMHC is back up and running on the regular schedule after a great holiday!

The last two weeks here in beautiful Waynesvville, NC I’ve seen an increasing number of neck and shoulder pain patients.
Many of these patients have been referred because they don’t wish to have surgery if it’s not absolutely necessary. It is interesting how conditions and patients come in waves. Guess its been neck / shoulder and neuropathies lately.

Another interesting occurence is that many patients who have hand / arm pain and/or numbness and tingling are told they have carpal tunnel syndrome. I have noticed a large incidence of people who report similar symptoms to carpal tunnel syndrome but also report having neck and shoulder tension. Many of these patients have compression of the nerve as it passes through the thoracic outlet and not at the carpal tunnel [in the wrist] even though the symptoms appear distally in the hand or forearm, the problem is in the neck / shoulder. I have successfully treated many patients so that they do not have to suffer through a surgery, that in many cases does nothing to relieve the symptoms.

Anyway, hope everyone enjoyed Turkey day!

Tui Na & Cupping Seminar [22 CEU’s]

Posted by admin on Aug 17, 2010 in Uncategorized


I am sponsoring a Continuing Education Seminar next month, so here are the details.


Tui Na [Chinese Massage] and Cupping [Dermal Vacuum Therapy] are ancient healing modalities used as part of Chinese medicine; more commonly called Acupuncture. This seminar will teach basic Tui Na theory, technique and sequences. Also, basic cupping theory and technique will be covered. This seminar will be hands on with lots of time to practice on each other. The idea is to demonstrate a technique and how to use it, then pair up and practice that technique. You will come away from this seminar with the foundations of Tui Na and Cupping in such a way as to be able to apply it right away in your practice whether you are a massage therapist, acupuncturist, or chiropractor.


September 24th, 25th, and 26th.

Friday Sept. 24th: Noon – 6:00 pm

Saturday Sept. 25th: 8 am – 5 pm
