In Chinese Medicine each season relates to a natural element. Summer relates to the fire element. The corresponding organ system is the heart.

Spring Cleanse: Eliminate & Rejuvenate

The Cleanse is designed to help you shed the accumulations of Winter and align with the light & bright energies of Spring.  Eating in accordance with the energies of each Season is paramount for vitality & longevity.

Learn how to fortify & balance yourself in the transition from Winter to Spring so that you may feel energized, clear & focused when the Spring arrives. Participants will learn which foods are inflammatory; what constitutes healthy fat; how to create meals that balance blood sugar levels and give consistent energy; how to relate to your cravings with compassion & tenacity; how to nourish yourself in ways unrelated to food; and how to supplant old patterns with new generative habits.

Additionally, it will include 3 Acupuncture Detoxification Treatments, Peer Support, Reflective Journaling Exercises & Consultation with Sarah & Martha. The Acupuncture Detoxification Treatments are a core component of this Cleanse. The treatments will help open awareness to the habituated patterns around food and support the body's capacity to detoxify.

We will identify habituated patterns; create shifts around how we relate to food; and will supplant life-sustaining tools that empower a nourished and generative way of living.
