Mother's Day Gift Certificates Available

I just spent the past week in the hospital with my 93 year old mother, Georgia.

Georgia broke her femur just below the hip joint, and against some pretty slim odds (her heart function is at about 30%) she survived surgery. She might not walk again because her old bones are so brittle, but at least she will be able to transferred and such without being in excruciating pain. We said our goodbyes more than once. There were moments of gravity and moments of levity, but mostly there was just a lot of love.

So this Sunday is Mother's Day.

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: There is nothing quite like acupuncture for stress relief. The act of mothering is unending work, and acupuncture offers a wonderful respite for tired, stressed, overworked moms.

Mother's Day Gift Certificates are available now.
