We had a great turn out for our health fair on January 4th. The fair focused on using natural medicine to help strengthen your willpower in order to stick to your New Years resolutions. We will be holding seasonal free health fairs, so stay tuned for info on our spring fair. 

As we enter the coldest part of the winter season, it’s helpful to remember these useful tips. In Chinese medicine, it is believed that by harmonizing your body with the seasons you are able to focus on the organ of the season to make you healthier and able to prevent disease. For example, winter is associated with the kidneys, which hold the body’s most basic and fundamental energy, or qi. Rest and inward reflection are important for the kidneys, so take advantage of the shorter days and get more sleep. Kidneys are also the organ most effected by stress, and adding meditation and yoga are a great way to reduce stress. 

Acupuncture, Chinese nutritional therapies and Chinese herbs are also great for strengthening the kidneys. Let us know if you would like to schedule an appointment.
