I hope you have enjoyed a lovely holiday season! The Neijing Suwen*, an important ancient text of Traditional Chinese Medicine, discusses the importance of rest during the winter months. Just as many plants go deep within during our cold rainy season, we can benefit from taking the opportunity to introspect, rest, and renew.
Below is my availability for January for acupuncture at the Saturna Medical Clinic.

*A short reading from the Neijing Suwen (Yellow Emperor's Classic of Medicine), estimated to have been penned between 221 BCE and 206BCE:
"During the winter months all things in nature wither, hide, return home, and enter a resting period, just as lakes and rivers freeze and snow falls. This is a time when yin dominates yang. Therefore one should refrain from overusing the yang energy. Retire early and get up with the sunrise, which is later in winter."
Many thanks for your ongoing support.
