In the heart of "The Annex" in Toronto, there is a tranquil space designed to help you slow down and re-establish inner balance through a combination of meditation, aromatherapy, massage, yoga, reiki and acupuncture.
The Fire Element & The Heart Spirits.
Welcome to Summer at Gladstone Acupuncture & Creative Wellness. Summer is the time of the Fire Element where the heart spirits "the Shen" are most active. This is a social, outwardly oriented time of year and as such, sometimes we need to tend to our Shen. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine Mythology, the Shen are born from the stars and are scooped into our hearts at birth infusing us with our life sprit. When the Shen are healthy, we sleep well, we experience a balanced range of emotions, we have good boundaries and healthy relationships and excellent connection to self and intuition. When the Shen are out of balance we may experience insomnia, anxiety, heart palpitations, skin disorders, depression, loss of creativity, loss of spark. If you think your Shen may need some attention, give us a call and arrange an appointment to balance your energy through Acupuncture, Reiki or body work.
