Learn some basic and simple methods of self-care based on age old wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine consisting of 2 topics:

– An introduction of the basics of Chinese-style moxabustion therapy, the burning of prepared mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) and applying indirect heat to regions of the body as well as acupuncture points to relieve many of the ailments that are common to the damp-windy-cold climate of Vancouver Island.

– An introduction to Chinese food energetics and diet therapy as well as trip to Chinatown through the dry goods section of Fisgard Market to find out what foods/herbs to use and for what conditions.

The workshop will include your own stick of moxa to take home.
Please come dressed in loose fitting clothing or bring a change of clothing so we can easily roll up sleeves and pant legs. Also bring a notebook and pen, you’ll likely want to take notes throughout this workshop. We are limited to floor seating, please bring a cushion to sit on.
