The hottest summer since 1976, and Mr SH and I are loving it. We had a few days away in Cornwall, which is somewhere I have wanted to visit since I was a child and we were not left disappointed. The beaches were amazing, the sea crystal clear and the people very friendly, it is somewhere I definitely want to revisit and explore more. My Qi was definitely recharged by the time we left.
Just a word on digestion during warm / hot weather, I’m advising all my clients to eat cooling foods but not ice cold during this hot weather as they can upset the stomach. In Chinese Medicine the digestive system doesn’t like very cold foods but trying to eat hot or spicy food in this weather is impossible. You may not feel like eating very much either, and that’s ok. Just try and pick at small amounts or wait until it cools down a little before eating. Eating fish or seafood can help you feel cooler but try not to eat lots of food before bed as that can make you hot and you might find it difficult to sleep even more. Don’t worry too much if your appetite is non existent right now, just keep drinking plenty and know that in a few months it’ll be cold and I’ll be advising warm stews and stodgy puddings to nourish your digestive system.
Now for some really exciting news…I am thrilled to announce that Shen Holistics is on the move from it’s current home on Ingleby Barwick to the gorgeous Acklam Hall in Middlesbrough. Shen Holistics has grown massively in the last year and it’s now time for a bigger clinic, so Shen Holistics is joining forces with FootMan Podiatry in the relocation to Acklam Hall. I will still be offering the same high level services; Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy, Massage, Cupping and Cosmetic Acupuncture but every client that visits us during the month will be entered into the FREE monthly prize draw to win afternoon tea at Acklam Hall. The more visits you make, the more chances to win. Myself and Alan Cawthorne (Footman Podiatry) are looking forward to seeing you at our new clinic, so from 1st September 2018 the clinic address will be:
