There are striking similarities between the yogi’s and the acupuncturist’s take on energy.. Call it by a different name (while you might hear your yoga teacher refer to energy as life force or prana, your acupuncturist will refer to it as Qi), the intention is the same: to create a free unhindered flow of energy.
We're super excited about our monthly Community Acupuncture collaboration with Owen McPeake, a practitioner from Flat Rock Health in Manayunk & the Vincera Institute. Every second Wednesday starting November 13th, stay after the flow class or drop-in after, when we'll get comfortable in a supported savasana, turn the lights down & the heat up and invite acupuncture to rejuvenate, relax and recharge the body's energy. In Chinese thinking the concept of energy reserves is easily understood like a bank account.
If you have decided to embark on a cleanse this week or in the near future, make sure that you factor in some self-care practices. Even if you know that there will be a benefit to taking a break from the foods that you crave, the moment of abstinence can be very challenging. These practices can pamper, replenish, reward and enhance your fall detoxification.
