So we have reached the halfway point of the year of the Wood Horse – how have you felt it has been? If it is anything like the Horse itself, it has perhaps been full of activity to the point of overwhelm, and then switches to the desire to escape to new places and things. This is a natural phenomenon for the Horse, for it is a free spirit and a wanderer at heart, never wanting to be tied down to one thing.
Truth be told, the only constant is change, as is the same here at Red Tree Wellness. We are always looking at how we can evolve and better not just our clinic, but also our own professional and personal growth, which ultimately helps everyone we touch in our lives. Chinese Medicine is one healing modality that always looks at this balance, which is our state of life cultivation and growth, and addresses how best to keep it going, healthy and strong. Do you think about life this way? Have you thought about ways you can live life to maintain and grow a healthy body, mind and spirit and age gracefully? In Chinese Medicine, aging is natural, and has practices we can do to help us age normally and gracefully, rather than “symptomatically”. Think about it. No, forget that. Instead, do something about it. It’s not too late. Change your diet, change your exercise, and change your mindset. We’re here to help, beyond the clinical side, and to empower you. This fall, we plan on beginning seminars on Longevity and Wellness tips from the East and the West, to be held every other month. Check out our first planned seminar on our website this September, and book off the evening Tuesday September 23rd. Pass the word on, and most of all, come! We’d love to see you there. Check back on our website for more information!
Once a familiar face, still a familiar face. It is with pleasure that we congratulate our Clinic Coordinator Sheralyn Hoiland on passing her acupuncture board exams! Woo Hoo! But wait, there’s more! We’re thrilled to announce that Sheralyn will be joining our acupuncture team this fall. We are thankful that she decided to stay in Vancouver, as we feel her intelligence, charisma, and passionate energy will be a great addition to the team. Look to book with her this September.
Of course, we’ll miss Sheralyn holding down the fort, however, we also are equally as thrilled to have a new Clinic Coordinator! A warm welcome to Brittany Allinson, who has a keen enthusiasm, passion and interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Look for her bright smiling face at your next visit!
Continuing with our series on sharing patient experiences, thank you to Ryoko S. for sharing her experiences and helping other patients and potential patients learn from her experience:
1. What have you learned (about your health, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, health prevention etc.) at Red Tree Wellness, that you didn’t previously know?
My son had night sweats every night, but I didn’t think that was one of the main reasons for my son’s chronic fatigue. Sonia Tan treated my son’s mild asthma and weak body with Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. I really didn’t know that Chinese Medicine was going to heal asthma.
2. Have you noticed any difference in your health since you started coming to Red Tree Wellness? If ‘Yes’ please briefly elaborate.
Yes. After Chinese Medicine treatments, my son’s mild asthma was gone and after a couple of acupuncture treatments, my son’s energy level changed noticeably for the better. The boy who didn’t want to play his favourite game (soccer) at lunch time, because of his exhaustion, is now able to play sports all day. The treatments gave his body a good balance and he’s gotten stronger.
3. Is there anything else that you would like to share about your experience with Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture?
My 7 year old son was not anticipating having an acupuncture treatment for the first time, but after he found out the treatment made him stronger, he was willing to do it again. I highly recommend moms letting children try acupuncture treatments. It really works fast!
Enjoy the last bit of summer (late summer as we like to say in Chinese Medicine), and try to take it in stride. We are always grateful to you, our patients, for choosing us to help guide you on your pathway to health. Remember to take everything in moderation and balance. By doing so, you are stepping into a more healthy direction towards longevity and optimal health.
May you have a fabulous Summer!
Yours in health and happiness,
Sonia & the Red Tree Wellness team
