We can hardly believe it, but guess what? It’s our birthday! We have now been open for 3 years! We have grown, bigger and stronger, into a truly wonderful and blessed clinic. We are able to offer amazing, affordable, and accessible healing to our community, and it’s all thanks to you and your continued support. So thank you, thank you, thank you! <3
First Goodie: To express our thanks for helping us grow, when you refer a friend in November, you get a treatment on us. There is no limit to how many friends you send. Help us spread the word about how great acupuncture is with the ones you care about the most! We can’t wait to meet your friends and loved ones!
Second Goodie: We will be open Saturday Nov. 28th to celebrate Small Business Saturday! We are here to help you get through the holidays and recovery from Thanksgiving and its repercussions.
Bao He Wan is an incredibly effective herbal formula for dispelling what the Chinese call ‘food stagnation’, especially with symptoms such as: indigestion, distention, bloating, constipation, etc. It’s also excellent for hiccups, burping, gas, acid reflux, even nausea from overeating or hangovers. Also known as “Curing Pills” (and “Preserve Harmony Pills”) these are the perfect herbs to have in your medicine cabinet around the holidays!
Finally! It’s Pumpkin Pie time! Not only considered by some to be THE BEST PIE EVER, it also has medicinal properties as well! Check it out:
Pumpkins are considered sweet and warming in Chinese Medicine, so they can:
Pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves) are all warming, drying and aid digestion. But if you eat too much of these spices: you will feel hot, irritable and could become a poor guest… So balance it out with water, juice or some other fluid.
Overeaters’ ProTip: To help counteract a stuffed tummy, may we suggest a half-shot of Anisette or Ouzo (Anise Liqeur)? A little goes a long way!
