Chinese Medicine: Using Nature to Nurture

But what if we want to stop just managing these things and get to their root? Licensed acupuncturist Mark Gutkin is eager to show you how Traditional Chinese Medicine does just that – making the necessary connection between our bodies and the changing seasons, the connection between food, our digestive system, our mood and our musculature. In this talk, we will delve into topics like Fall nutrition, how our muscles talk to us and how we can learn to listen better, and more. You will learn ways to nurture yourself holistically with the ancient wisdom of Eastern wellness. Cost is 20 dollars per person or one class card punch.
