Fall and Winter Time Recommendation: Bone Broth - it isn't just a fad! Its powerful vitalizing qualities have been known and used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine. In Chinese Medicine terms it:
• enhances Jing (essence/DNA) providing the foundation for sustained energy
• strengthens the Wei Qi (protection layer) to prevent common colds
• supports whole body Qi (energy that drives all function)
• facilitates the functions of Xue (blood) to effectively make, carry, and store nutrients
I recommend drinking a very warm glass in the morning, or sipping throughout the day. It's particularly useful when coming off caffeine and gives a grounding long-lasting energy versus the wired feeling from coffee. My favorite brand is: OSSO GOOD BONES because they are high quality, and make several with Chinese herbs* blended right into the broth!
*Please consult with myself or another TCM herbalist before taking at high doses if you have an autoimmune condition.

What People Are Saying
I’m a walking testimony! After one treatment with Juliana, I slept longer than in months! Other things began to respond better too. She’s amazing!
I had my first ever acupuncture today with the amazing Juliana Kramer (thanks mama!). Juliana is so magical and intuitive and caring. My entire body feels relaxed for the first time in weeks and I am in a blissful mood. Bay Area friends, this is a beautiful act of self-care (especially with the craziness going on astrologically lately… if you are into that kind of thing). Go get you some acupuncture and get it with this lady!
Juliana gave me emergency acupuncture with a side of wonderful life coaching – I have to say, not only was it a gift for me that she was available and willing when I needed it, the work was also the bomb. Too bad she’s on the other side of the country for me, lucky for you!
I had been struggling with ongoing discomfort and pain when swallowing and talking for over eight months, having first been diagnosed with an ulcerated larynx. After resting my voice a month, the ENT doctor did another scope of my throat and assured me my larynx had healed, but the pain continued. I tried all sorts of conventional ways of treating my sore throat, and got a second opinion from another ENT doctor, who ultimately told me, “You simply have to learn to live with the pain.”
Right from the start [of acupuncture treatments with Juliana] I felt a distinct lessening of the severity of pain in my throat. After three treatments I no longer had to take Advil to relieve the ongoing discomfort or ache in my throat, and my emotional outlook had brightened to the point of no longer feeling depressed or worried about the condition. Now I no longer make my throat pain the focus of my life and am able to see friends and talk for short periods without that severity of stabbing pain in my throat after. I have every confidence my condition will continue to improve, and my general overall health has improved, as well, plus I’m sleeping more deeply. Having the acupuncture treatments has opened a window of hope for me.
Juliana is amazing! I highly recommend her for acupuncture and massage!
I found her back in July when I was searching for an “emergency” massage on the yelp pages. After a couple of years of sleep deprivation and lack of self-care (thank you motherhood) I had a hit a wall and could not take the discomfort I was experiencing for another second! Turns out I was also dealing with an ovarian cyst that was adding to my discomfort.
Juliana is incredibly intuitive and attuned to energy in the body. I don’t mean to sound all woo-woo, but she knew exactly where I was hurting, how I needed to be massaged and all the right channels to stick her magic needles. She is also warm, grounding and holds a safe container, which is just what this exhausted and physically taxed mama needed to release the stress and trauma from her body!
I’ve been seeing her since then (she supported me through surgery and recovery and now helps me deal with my chronic body stuff related to scoliosis and modern life). Her sessions (I do both acupuncture and massage together) always leave me in less pain, more relaxed, and feeling happy to exercise self-care! I sleep better, digest better and pay more attention to my health and well being since I began care with her. She’s my therapist on multiple levels ;)… her personality and energy just feels safe, non-judgmental and nurturing to me.
Also if you you’re just looking for an amazing, deep, strong massage that melts the tension from your body, she can deliver!
