Thursday, September 6
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
We’re practicing Mindfulness this September, and are delighted to have Amber Myerowitz and Samantha Gendron from Cape Integrative Health join us to talk about ways for you to achieve your best possible health. Cape integrative Health is passionate about helping their patients relax and heal. Their aim is to improve your quality of life by reducing pain and promoting good health so that you can get back to doing the things you love.
One practice they advocate and will tell us about on September 6th is acupuncture. Acupuncture is a powerful system of medicine designed to address patients on a body, mind, and spirit level. Practiced for over 3000 years, the benefits of acupuncture treatment are now clearly recognized and well documented in western medical journals and in medical institutions across the United States.
Symptoms are viewed in relationship to the entirety of a person in order to explore the root cause of an illness or imbalance. Many acupuncture patients report a resolution or lessening of their primary symptoms. Perhaps the most profound result of treatment is a common experience of a greater sense of well being, clarity, and ease in life.
We hope you’ll join us to learn more about this ancient practice!
