September 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Learn simple concepts to help with day to day life stresses.
This is an in-person program. Masks are recommended at all in-person library events.
Come learn about the ancient wisdom through a modern mindset to meet today’s needs. There is limitless wisdom and adaptability in acupuncture. We learn to see the patient before us as whole, not as a disease and the entire person is treated and supported.
This 2 part course will go over foundational Chinese medicine philosophies and tools to bring into your day to day life for strength, confidence, and reassurance. You will learn simple acupuncture concepts and understandings to bring home right away. We will talk about how Chinese medicine is a holistic medicine – treating health problems, mental disorders/imbalances, emotional pain, physical pain not as separate issues; but as part of the entire being. This wholeness builds resilience.
Participate in Part 2: “When illness strikes the home” via Zoom on Sept 28th.
