The picture above is from one of my favourite fall activities. Kayaking on our local and world class wetland, with friends and a picnic. It is refreshing and renewing in that it strengthens my friend bonds, quiets my mind and nurtures my soul with large doses of nature with the birds, amphibians, fish, plants and insects that reside there. Like the wetlands with all those components, there are so many facets to health care too. Recreation and self care are important contributors to health body, mind and spirit!
This September many of you may be breathing a deep breath after the hectic pace of summer in a tourist town, or others of you are gearing up for an increased pace of fall with school or new projects. What ever the pace I encourage you to address your health with a big dose of self care in the way or modality that suits you best.
I would like to remind you that my services are available to all ages, so if you have a school aged person in your household that needs health support I invite you to bring them to Flourishing Health clinic. I have treated a number of children and teens with issues such as digestive problems, headaches, insomnia, and anxiety. Parent or guardian are welcome to sit in during the treatment to make it most comfortable for the students.
Teachers also have a soft spot to land for an hour or two per month in my clinic to support their busy careers with the tools of massage, acupuncture, diet therapy and aromatherapy. Also I am now able to direct bill Blue Cross for any in the school district or others that have that insurance provider.
As always seniors are also most welcome. Some of the issues I have recently done a deep dive of research on is treating arthritis and degenerative disc disease, having had a brush with those myself. The good news is that acupuncture and TCM are great options for the management of these challenges.
