Using Chinese Medicine for a Healthy Moontime

Her lecture will include basics of Chinese Medicine theory as well as different methods used within the medicine. She will teach the 4 phases of the menstrual cycle in Chinese Medicine – how they align with the moon phases, and how to use herbal medicine, self-massage, acupressure, movement, and food to create a harmonious and healthy moontime each month.
