We just did the most fun gig for 150 kids at Chugach Optional School. It was an hour long concert sprinkled with lots of inspirational speaking on encouragement, friendship, never giving up, choosing our emotions, and more. There was an epic Moana sing-along and I got rushed by my new 2nd grade girl groupies. Thanks for that incredibly energizing opportunity, Clare!
When your Qi (lifeforce energy) is balanced and flowing freely, you experience greater health, vitality and happiness!
With over 365 powerful acupuncture points on the surface of your body, acupuncture treatments are the best way to keep your Qi flowing smoothly and harmoniously.
Blockages in the flow of Qi are damaging to your health and develop into signs and symptoms of illness.
An obstruction to the flow of Qi is like a dam. When Qi becomes backed up in one part of the body, the flow becomes restricted in other parts. This blockage of the flow of Qi limits the vital nourishment of the body, organs and glands.
Physical and emotional trauma, stress, lack of exercise, overexertion, seasonal changes, poor diet, accidents, or excessive activity are among the many things that can influence the quality, quantity and balance of Qi.
Normally, when a blockage or imbalance occurs, the body easily bounces back, returning to a state of health and well-being. However, when this disruption is prolonged or excessive, or if the body is in a weakened state, illness, pain, or disease can set in.
This is when acupuncture treatments are really amazing! Once the imbalances of Qi are located, fine, sterile needles are placed at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways. The safe and painless insertion of the needles can unblock the obstruction and balance Qi where it has become unbalanced. Once this is done, Qi can freely circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to restore you to amazing health, vitality and happiness!
FACT : The common goal of both Yoga & Ayurveda is Self-Realisation; Spiritual Awakening.⠀
This is NOT ✨ special ✨ - this is not reserved for a limited few. All this means is one awakens to the dream of separation. It's a shift in perspective...⠀
"Ultimately, all the images we have about ourselves and the world turn out to be nothing but a resistance to things as they are. What we call the ego is simply the mechanism our mind uses to resist life as it is. 🌿 It is the pushing away or pulling toward. This momentum, this grasping and rejecting, is what forms a sense of a self that is distinct, or separate, from the world around us." ⠀
~ Adyashanti ⠀
This spiritual dimension is so often overlooked, especially as Ayurveda is taken into a western context. Let us not forget self-study & practices that bring us more self-awareness, hence bringing us more health and happiness 🙏⠀
Aaaand, as always if you've read to this far then to juxtapose the "serious" *Note - Photo taken of my most favourite incense burner I ever did see - Mr Snail 😂😍 Don't you love it?? ⠀
