Q: Do you just do acupuncture at Pekoe, or do you have other specialties? I do acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and private yoga therapy. So you pretty much run the whole gamut of services at Pekoe. Almost everything they offer, you do. I do a lot of it, but I […]

It’s been a little over two years (7/17/13!) since we moved here to Shaw from New York Avenue, and it was hands-down the best decision we ever made to move here. We are in a great neighborhood, we have an awesome location on 9th Street, and we have great facilities […]

Hot out there, huh? We’re willing to bet a few of you forgot what DC summers were like during the winter. Heat, yes, but also that glorious, prototype East Coast humidity. You can see the haze hanging over the Potomac, and you can feel the sweat pool in the small […]

 

Help Our Friend With Love Triangle

Cancer is just about the worst thing in the world. We can say that with confidence. It’s an insidious, creeping, disease that kills people. It’s painful, and treatment is expensive, especially here in the States. We are big fans of Obamacare. We really are. It made it a lot easier […]

 

Meet Your Pekoe Staff: Q&A with Arlene Manier

Explain to me what reflexology is. It’s the idea that our organs inside and our extremities outside can be manipulated and healed through zones in your feet, hands, and ears. Personally, I’ve been focusing on the feet, because the feet aren’t always respected, but we’re totally dependent on them. Without […]

It is difficult for the majority of us to imagine life in a wheelchair. Most of us probably think about things like navigating curbs or stairs, or not being able to play basketball, or dance, or turn on the faucet in the tub with our toes. But there are thousands […]
