The Year of the Earth Pig!

February 5th was Chinese New Year of the Earth Pig! 
In China, celebrations last until today. It is a lunar new year, and a Spring festival, new beginnings and fresh starts as we prepare for Spring.There are 12 zodiac animals in the Chinese zodiac system, one for each year. If you were born in the year of the pig, you are advised to tread carefully this year. Generally the pig is a steady, loyal companion and this year is said to bring prosperity in health and finances. Sounds good to me!
Spring is a little way off yet so no rush to make big plans.
However having a seasonal tuneup for the body with either Acupuncture or Shiatsu is recommended any time from mid-March as the liver and gallbladder are most vulnerable then, leading to tightness in the body and irritability. I'll tell you more in the Spring Newsletter.
Events to look out for.
Tai Qi 8 week course starts Mondays 4th March 7.30-8.30pm with the lovely Roger. £48 payable in advance. Maximum 6 places. 
Keep your necks and backs warm and protected from the wind and let's all get ready for Spring.
Best wishes
