From holiday blues to bloating, the holidays present us with health challenges besides the good times. Hence we decide to focus on learning self-care skills to prepare us for the holidays in our October and November meeting for our meetup. For our October meeting, we will focus on dealing with digestion issues.

Whether you are single or married, have kids or not, we welcome you to join us in this 90-minute FREE workshop to:

1) Meet the Inner Doctor inside us through the Healing By Design Self-Care Technology.

2) Discover and use our Hand Control Panel and Ear Control Panel to prevent and address our digestion challenges, whether it is indigestion, constipation, low appetite, over-eating, handling a gallbladder attack or food poisoning, or just to improve our digestion so we can enjoy the holiday meals.

3) Learn about a special therapeutic water that can help us improve our digestion, lose weight, among many other benefits.

This is the kickoff session for our Self-Care-for-All workshop series. It is also a joint session with our Self-Care-for-New and-Expecting-Parents series. The workshop will be facilitated by Lisa K.Y. Wong, L.Ac., founder of Center for Healing By Design, a licensed acupuncturist and self-care educator. A former staff acupuncturist at Kaiser Permanente San Jose and massage therapist at El Camino Hospital, Lisa served as a subject expert for the California Acupuncture Board. Lisa is also the author of the Pocket Guide to Your Body's Control Panels and a member of the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health. She launched the global Climb Every Mountain Self-Care Movement by climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in 2015 and has taught practical and life-changing self-care skills to hundreds of people in Silicon Valley and abroad, from 4-year-old orphans to 80-year-old world record holders, to empower them to climb the "mountains" in their lives.
