黃帝內經 Huang Di Nei Jing:
“The superior physician prevents the disease;
The mediocre physician attends to impending disease;The inferior physician treats the actual disease.”

In Western Medicine the body is seen as a machine, you try to fix a broken part or take it out. In Chinese Medicine, the body is seen as a garden. If the leaves are wilting or turning brown, you examine the condition of the soil, see if the plant is getting enough water & sun or if the roots are being impinged upon. You don’t just paint the leaves green! ~ From the classic book on Chinese Medicine, "Between Heaven and Earth".

TCM 5 elements, Wood, Fire, Earth, Water, Metal: Can you tell which is which? 

According to ancient Chinese wisdom, diet is one of the most important factors in Well-Being. Certain foods can cause imbalance in the body and should be avoided so as not to create a yin or yang deficiency.

About Gaines Frazier LAc, MSTCM

Gaines Frazier is originally from the east coast of Virginia where he received a Bachelors degree in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia. He continued to pursue these interests by working for the Hawaii Wildlife Fund in Maui, where he suffered a knee sprain that forced him to wear a brace during any activity. Through yoga and movement classes, he was advised that the injury was in fact rooted in his hips. Using this information to resolve the injury sparked a powerful interest in body awareness and dynamics. Shortly after, he was introduced to an Acupuncturist who further inspired his journey. He then began a year of in depth research and education, finally deciding to pursue a career in the healing arts.

Gaines received his Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, California. He thrives in working with a diagnostic system analogous to the natural systems he previously studied. Additionally, he is trained in the manual therapies of shiatsu, tuina, polarity and Swedish massage, which he incorporates as a diagnostic tool in his practice. He specializes in acute and chronic pain management and orthopedic issues. As an intern, he has worked with the Mental Health Care Action Network (MHCAN) treating the psychosomatic manifestation of disease, particularly stress and anxiety. Gaines believes in creating a calm and safe environment, as deep relaxation is where true healing takes place.

2019: Year Of The Pig

The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.
Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.

                   新年快樂!   恭賀新禧!  新年好!

              Happy New Year! Gun Hei Fat Choi!

Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.
Pigs might not stand out in a crowd. But they are very realistic. Others may be all talk and no action. Pigs are the opposite.
Though not wasteful spenders, they will let themselves enjoy life. They love entertainment and will occasionally treat themselves. They are a bit materialistic, but this is motivation for them to work hard. Being able to hold solid objects in their hands gives them security.
They are energetic and are always enthusiastic, even for boring jobs. If given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. They believe that only those people have the right to speak, and that’s what they want.

May 2019 brig you an abundance of the Pig’s happiness and health!
