Program Description


Staying Healthy in The Fall
Thursday, September 28
Fall is nature's season of harvesting the bounty that grows during the summer so that you can store up for the winter season ahead. Some of the gifts of fall include letting go and pruning; crisp, dry air that allows us to breathe deeply; and acknowledging nature’s beauty. By letting go of the “old” in the fall, we have room for new growth that comes in the spring.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Lung and the Large Intestine are associated with the season of fall. These two organs work together to perform many important energetic functions vital to your health. If the energy of the Lung and Large Intestine are not balanced, you may experience hay fever, asthma, dry cough; frequent colds; rough, itchy, or dry skin; and constipation or diarrhea. If you are interested in learning how your body works from a TCM perspective; if you are interested in learning safe and natural ways to follow and use the energy of Fall to stay healthy, then this class is for you. Renee Lehman, MS, PT, MAc, Licensed Acupuncturist and Physical Therapist, will present practical self-care practices (including Lifestyle recommendations, Qigong movements, and Eating for Healing) to help you support your body’s energy (Qi).
