Ancient Healing: An Evening of Acupuncture and Shamanic Healing

Thursday, September 20, 6-7:30pm
Registration: $65

Join Katie Oberlin, shamanic healing practitioner, and Mari Stecker, licensed acupuncturist, for a special evening of healing in preparation for the autumn equinox.

In both Traditional Chinese Medicine and shamanism, autumn is a time to celebrate the harvest. This pertains to crops as well as other things that we grow and nourish such as ideas, dreams, relationships, our bodies, and the fruits of our labors.

It is also a time of change as the living world begins to wind down and we reflect inward on our life’s path. There is great potential for healing as we release what no longer serves.

This event is sure to be a unique opportunity to experience the ancient traditions of acupuncture and shamanic healing blended into an evening of relaxation and renewal.

After a shamanic opening ceremony, participants will receive an acupuncture treatment to encourage deep relaxation. The evening will continue with other features of shamanism including healing songs, drumming and other energetic clearing and alignment techniques. We’ll end the evening with a closing ceremony and time for integration to support moving forward with health, vitality and gratitude.

You will be lying on yoga mats so please bring a pillow and blanket to ensure your comfort.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Registration online only.

  • Getting Off Blood Pressure Meds Forever, Contaminated Or Not

    If you’re currently taking a blood pressure medication, the chances are pretty good that you’re on one of the ARBs (angiotensin receptor blockers). You can recognize these because they end in -sartan, as in losartan and valsartan. You also may have heard that two of the most popular ARBs (valsartan and irbesartan) were abruptly withdrawn this year by the FDA and other agencies around the Read More

  • How To Get Off Statins

    Getting off statins is easy. Stop swallowing the pill. If you’re not in a potentially high-risk group (as described below) and your doc prescribed a statin to get your cholesterol down a bit, you won’t have a heart attack or a stroke that day or week or probably that decade. There’s no “statin withdrawal” and you weren’t born with a statin deficiency. In fact, many Read More

  • Pushing Your Wellness Exam Into The 21st Century

    Patients ask me, “What about those wellness exams my health insurance company says I’m entitled to every year at no cost?” Bad news. Let’s review one of life’s basic rules: you get what you pay for. What you receive during your short wellness visit (what many consider a sacrosanct ritual that boosts longevity) is little more than a quick look at the obvious. Your weight, Read More
