Spring's return of light and warmth enables us to notice the cobwebs and clutter that have accumulated in our homes over the long winter. The equivalent build-up of toxins has also occurred in our bodies. And regardless of how well we eat, we all carry a heavy load of toxins. 
Toxins in our environment from processed foods, polluted air and water, industrial byproducts, chemicals in toiletries, furniture, cleaning products, and even toxic relationships all put a strain on our body's ability to detoxify. Over time, this strain can lead to fatigue, general malaise, and the development of chronic disease.


According to Chinese Medicine, Spring is inherently a time of awakening new energy, especially stimulating movement of liver energy. Young, green plants are plentiful and add new life to our bodies, supporting the detoxification process. Sour foods such as sauerkraut and pickled goods lend further support during this time. Sunshine encourages us to get outside and move our bodies, thus raising Vitamin D levels and speeding up our metabolism. All of these elements make Spring the ideal season to awaken the body's power to release inflammation and revitalize health.


Join us for our annual Spring Detox to cleanse your body. During the detox, we'll work to remove dietary burdens on your liver, increase liver detoxification, support bowel excretion of toxins, and educate you along the way. We'll use acupuncture and essential oils to support your body and encourage optimum results.
Guest speakers  will talk at each group session on topics such as essential oils, food quality, locally sourced foods, and yoga.
