With Spring well and truly underway, and Summer just around the corner, I thought it appropriate to make a few changes to not only my main clinic but to parts of my general lifestyle. In the classic medical text the Huangdi Neijing Spring and Summer are 6 months of growth and development. It is a time of energetic movement, a time to exercise more, sleep less and build ones strength for the cooler months of Autumn and Winter. What does this have to do with the Crows Nest clinic? Or myself?
With daylight savings in full effect the Crows Nest clinic hours will be further extended on Thursdays and Fridays. Naturally this remains to be strictly by appointment, however, I understand that often normal work hours for many people are also extended. In addition, a new system is up and running for online bookings. You can now book initial, follow-up and herbal consultations / treatments online via this link: ONLINE BOOKINGS. Naturally one can still book via phone and email. In addition to these booking changes discounts will be awarded for both multiple bookings (6 and 12 sessions) and for regular patients who refer to the clinic. Please discuss these possible discounts and awards with myself on your next visit. Furthermore a strict 24 hour cancellation policy will be in effect from the 1st of November. What this means is that unless there is an emergency situation then the full fee will be charged (unless 24 hours notice is given).
In regards to my own changes...I will be ramping up my martial arts studies at VT1MMA where I train in Brazilian Jiujitsu, a beautiful and gentle grappling art. As Spring is about growth it is a great time to engage the correct movement of both body and mind. A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to begin studies under the exception Shakuhachi Grandmaster, Riley Lee. The Shakuhachi is a traditional Japanese Zen meditational flute which requires very specific and challenging breath work. It is in itself and form of deep meditation, breath cultivation, and music appreciation. So do not be surprised if you see new flit yes floating around the Crows Nest acupuncture clinic over the next months.
In Good Health,
Dr. David White
