FREE WORKSHOP! Tuesday May 28, 2019. 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
This workshop will focus on skills for managing stress and anxiety. We’ll explore the Traditional Chinese Medicine view how our stress connects with physical symptoms, especially cancer. We’ll learn tips and tricks such as breathing exercises, meditation, dietary changes, self-acupressure, sleep-promoting techniques, and stretches we can do to reduce stress and anxiety. These tips are not limited to people with cancer, so friends and family are welcome to attend as well.
TCM is a system of natural medicine and wellness that has been evolving for the past 3000 or more years. If you are a cancer patient, survivor or their loved one, you’re welcome to join us and learn self-care principles to help manage your physical and emotional health.
