What we're about

This is a group for anyone who is interested or curious about any aspect of Chinese Medicine and using its principles to promote healthy living. From my time living in Taiwan and China I came across the concept of Yang Sheng or 'cultivating life', a range of techniques from Chinese cooking to qi gong to just soaking your feet in hot water to promote health, vitality and long-life. In this group we will organize talks, workshops and experiences ranging from learning self-acupressure or Chinese recipes to more philosophical topics. It is fundamentally a group for anyone who wants to learn how to empower themselves on their own healing journey and take control of their own health. We also want to have fun and meet new people!
