The time has come for Root Health to re-open. It was my strong hope that we would be well on our way to recovering from the global pandemic, acute national strife and be working collectively toward healing by now. We've got a long way to go.
The question I am currently most present with is, how do we navigate with grace that which is? How do we reduce suffering regardless of external circumstance? How do we take good care of ourselves, loved ones and community when 'what is' isn’t what we want it to be?
These kind of questions are not new. We have navigated collective loss throughout history. The ancient teachings of acupuncture and East Asian medicine have some answers. When someone is hurt and in pain, acupuncture doesn’t magically make the injury disappear or remove underlying conditions. Rather, it aids one’s system in better navigating that which is. It removes associated stagnation. It brings more nourishment to the area. It helps one feel more present and relaxed, thereby reducing pain. The work associated with this is neither wimpy nor to be confused with indifference. Rather, by working working with 'what is', there is the potential to find support, change and healing.
Root Health is re-opening in the spirit of embracing what is. This pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon (booo-hissss!!!) and I want to continue to be of support to my community. I also gain and learn a lot from our work together and have missed connecting with each of you. My office will be back to a full-time practice starting next week, August 3. Want to book an appointment or schedule ahead? You can do so online right now at www.roothealthclinic.com.
As a reminder, all safety precautions and requirements are still in place. This is about doing our best and being safest with what we’ve got, right? Click here if you need a refresher.
I hope this finds each and every one of you safe, healthy and taking good and gentle care. My sincere gratitude for your patience and understanding while Root Health has been closed. I hope to see you soon!
