    I've used acupressure points when I have done labor support for comfort and also to stimulate the release of oxytocin and also taught it to the partners. On the flip side, there are pressure points to avoid stimulating if pregnant.
    I've never used acupuncture but I know acupressure works! - 5/23/2011   4:30:49 PM

    I eye-doctor tips were interesting. On the exercises, where did they come up with the name BURPEES for the Squat-thrust? It certainly look like the same old exercise I remember from grade school. Does Burpee come from making you belch and pee? Good grief. - 5/22/2011   8:35:38 PM

    Acupuncture 101 for sure! - 5/22/2011   1:32:04 PM
    I also liked the eye doctor tips. Checked out the sweet potato recipe and two of the exercise blogs. Don't always like the websites that the links go to. - 5/22/2011   12:35:50 PM

    The secrets from eye doctors was interesting, only because I already knew all of those "secrets" most of them told to me by an eye doctor! - 5/22/2011   10:19:10 AM
