Happy weekend loves. I’m kicking off this Saturday morning by dropping a spoon full of acupuncture knowledge.

What is acupunture?
– Acupuncture is a Holistic healing modality focused on correcting imbalances of energy in the body

How does acupuncture work?

– Acupuncture needling influences the activity of adenosine, an amino acid which becomes active in the skin after an injury, increasing oxigenated blood flow to the intended area.

– Acupuncture has the ability to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, creating holistic synergy in the body.

– From a Chinese medicine prospective acupuncture modifies the flow of energy (known as qi or chi) throughout the body.

I’ve heard of the countless benefits of accupunture for years from trusted sources. My mom credits her shoulder injury rehabilitation to accupunctue after trying pretty much every western medical intervention in the book. I finally gave this ancient Chinese healing technique a try last week from the amazing acupuncturist Mona Dan at Vie Healing in Beverly Hills. I focused my treatment on improving an old car accident injury, leaving me a little weak in my left knee and hip. I also inquired about potentially improving my erratic menstural cycle and anxious predisposition. Mona explained the benefits of acupuncture and proceeded to insert multiple needles into various parts of my body, evoking my body’s natural healing response. Once the needles were painlessly inserted I relaxed in a meditative state for about twenty minutes before they were swiftly removed. I was given Huanhe calm tea blend to drink daily to continue the mood boosting body love. This specific tea blend of white tea, green tea, orchid, and gojis was selected for me because of my mild anxiety. I’ve been drinking this blend every day since my treatment and I’m addicted, it’s totally assisting me in my constant quest for calm. I wanted to share this amazing Huanhe calming tea with you guys so I’m doing a giveaway in conjunction with this post, go to my Instagram @thetruespoon for giveaway details. I strongly suggest visiting Mona Dan at Vie Healing for any physical or mental imbalance Website link
