Along those lines, he has shown us two great exercises to strengthen the posture of the upper back and shoulders in order to avoid the "slumped back" look that seems common ...

written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 18th August, 2013

So it is that time of the year when all of us are rushing to Office Depot or Staples for school supplies. The summer is fleeing quickly and our children are heading back to school.

written by Rebecca Mahayag, LCSW-C
on Wednesday, 7th August, 2013

I am not sure how relevant this topic is to the blog as I have no professional information to impart.

There have been several “high profile" deliveries in the past few weeks – Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson and of course, Princess Kate. I feel that ...

on Sunday, 4th August, 2013

We started our Saturday two weeks ago as usual with an hour of boot camping with our “Lady Docs” friends. The Washington area was plagued with mid-90s temperature with the heat index in the 110s! We sweated profusely even in the first five minutes of stretching! We were delighted to be back into a cool house and get ready for a baby shower for Rebecca, one of our ...
