Happy Summer Everyone!

Just wanted to connect with all you beautiful people and let you know what is going on in my life & TCM/Birth Doula Practice.

It has been 8 months now since I have moved to Squamish, and I am loving the Squamish life. The community here has been very welcoming and I feel very grateful to be part of it!

That being said, I still love coming into the city during the week to be in my lovely space downtown and serve the people in Vancouver. I feel I have the best of both worlds. Life is pretty good!

Summer is here, the sun is shining, people are out, the Jazz Festival in Vancouver is on! It feels like everyone’s energy is high. In Chinese Medicine we consider Summer the Upmost Yang of the year cycle. This means, this is the time of the year when there is more energy, so it is a very good time to GO FOR IT!! Use the energy all around to do the things your heart longs to do, like for a example: a creative project, a new sport, reconnecting with old friends, gardening, yoga, hiking, etc.. In Chinese Medicine Summer is connected to the element of FIRE & to the SPIRIT!! So do those things that makes you happy and you will shine all around for the benefit of all!

Me personally, what makes me most happy is travelling. So I am off to Europe August 1st for 1 month. I would love to see you before I go. So please use my online scheduling system to book yourself an appointment with me.

Give yourself the gift of healing and self care. Take advantage of the energy of summer to cultivate your CHI.

I hope this Summer is showering you with lots of energy! I wish for you to be healthy, vibrant & free, that you are connected to your heart & your bliss!
