Acupuncture for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammatory condition of the plantar fascia which is a thick, fibrous ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel to the front of the foot. Someone with plantar fasciitis will experience intense pain at the bottom of their heel; in some cases, pain can radiate up the leg causing discomfort in the ankle and calf.

Medial knee pain can be a frustrating injury. It may look simple and straightforward, but it’s actually pretty complex.

Uniqueness

What makes you unique? Everyone should spend time taking a personal inventory of this. Who am I? What do I appreciate about myself? What makes me who I am? What makes me energized? When do I thrive?. These questions are meant to make you think deeply about what makes you unique. The concept can seem broad and abstract but start by breaking it down on a day to day basis.
