Flourishing Growth: Spring Program

Sunday February 24, 9:30-11:30
$25, Free to CTHA members!

At our Springtime Program we will enjoy flowering tea and discuss the quality of qi and the liver in the spring and their traditional associations, including utilizing the emotions, muscular force, movements and appropriate exercises for the season.

Changing as the seasons change is one of the fundamental methods of restoring and maintaining the health in traditional Chinese medicine. In this program we'll have a relaxed setting to talk about these processes and how they relate to modern life.

Space is limited. Please contact us to reserve a spot.
