Acupuncture has been used in China for over 2500 years as a form of medicine and healing. The points that are stimulated by acupuncture needles have electrical sensitivity that can be partially explained by our nervous system. The needles affect the functions of the body and assist in stimulating healing. Cupping was developed in Asia and also around the world as a way to free tense and stuck tissues in the body and promote recovery.
Amber specializes in neurological disorders, and neuro-acupuncture is her prime treatment method. This modern development of acupuncture stimulates the brain to build new neural pathways while decreasing neuro-inflammation and restoring brain function. Neuro-acupuncture is a valuable tool for any neurological/brain-related issue including traumatic brain injury, behavioral health concerns, stroke, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.

3 ways to protect your brain from daily stress by savoring positive emotions
If you spend time each day paying attention to what is going well in your life, you will notice feeling more relaxed and, generally, happier. Science actually shows that focusing on the positive aspects of our lives has a positive effect on our brain. Perspective shift can have a tremendous impact on our brain health.A new study shows that maintaining sustained activity in a brain region called the ‘ventral striatum’, is directly linked to maintaining a positive emotional mindset.

HOW TO HACK YOUR SLEEP FOR A MORE RESILIENT BRAIN
Sleep is as important to a human body as food and water. We spend about 1/3 of our lives asleep. Sleep affects every system in the body, including the brain. Your brain uses the time that you are asleep to ‘clean’ up tissues, essentially removing toxins and cellular debris so that your brain can function properly when awake. Researchers still have not uncovered all of the functions of our sleep but have shown that if we do not get enough sleep over time, or too much sleep, we increase our risk for chronic health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and depression.
INCREASE YOUR BRAIN’S CAPACITY TO LEARN AND MANAGE STRESS IN 7 MINUTES: 3 WORKOUTS TO ELEVATE YOUR BRAIN
When we exercise, we encourage synaptic plasticity – which is the basis for being able to learn new things. Exercise also spurs the development of NEW nerve cells from stem cells in the hippocampus. New nerve cells can become whatever we ‘put our mind to’ - literally. Neurons differentiate according to what the brain is being asked to do. The classic ‘use it or lose it’ axiom holds true with brain neurons. If you want to increase your brain activity in a certain way, you have to exercise your brain in that way. Exercise supports your brain’s ability to build the tools you need in order to learn new things and manage stress.
