EnerQi changes based on how we care for ourselves and by the lifestyle choices we make. By having Balanced EnerQi, your energetic frequency will be raised to a much higher level allowing you to be stronger and more alive than ever before.

Each of us can make everything that comes our way somewhat easier, or more difficult, to deal with. There are always going to be challenges and stressful situations. That’s just part of life. What is also part of life is that every day we get to make choices as to how we let life’s inevitable ups and downs affect us.
I have treated many children over the past 25 years and always welcome their sweet energy to my treatment room. It is not uncommon for little ones to have disturbed sleep as they have so much internal and external developmental growth going on.
In my experience, there are two distinct types of patients seeking support with acupuncture. The first is the patient who views their wellness as an ongoing journey, chipping away day- to -day, mindful about their health and wellbeing. The other type is the patient who only pays attention when faced with an illness or injury.
In Oriental Medicine, we call kidneys the ‘ministers of health’ since they are responsible for and relate to the area of reproduction, growth and regeneration. One of the kidney’s most important jobs, in the creation of heat and fire, is the movement of energy that fuels us, not unlike an engine. The kidneys are the battery pack of the body; their strength and health must always be addressed.
I find it quite commonplace, as people go about living their lives inside and outside of their homes, they forget to notice the inherent beauty around them.
Remember a time when you were in the mountains, or by the sea, enjoying the unique sounds and smells.

When I was growing up in the 1960s and realized that my grandparents were sixty, they seemed and looked so old. Times have definitely changed for the better in regard to aging in our society. There have never been so many positive ways to educate, enlighten and adopt the many documented discoveries.
Lately, I have been noticing more and more women patients of a certain age (45-65ish) who are just so, so busy. Busy every moment of every day…running, running. They come in exhausted, having been to their exercise class, hair appointments, manicures, facials, work, lunch with friends shopping, etc. It’s as if being “ busy” is a new status for importance, a badge of honor.
In Living The EnerQi Connection, accomplished acupuncturist Sheri Laine explores this innate natural energy, how it works, how it can benefit your life, and how you can easily cultivate your own powerful EnerQi.
Daily care of your Qi is vital for well-being and happiness. Qi is our life force, or vital energy, the electromagnetic vibration that circulates in and around each of us. This energy system carries our physical, mental, and spiritual power within it. Our Qi is energetically charged with daily movement. Make sure you are intentionally exercising five times a week -- no matter what -- for at least 25-60 minutes.
