    Changes in the New Year

    We had a really productive practice meeting a couple of weeks ago, shared a yummy soup, and got excited about the future of COCA. I feel so blessed to have Kaye and Julie to co-create with.

    We all admitted to feeling the contraction of Autumn, and finding it tough to get out of bed in the mornings!

    The most important outcomes were as follows;

    Online Booking

    From January 2022, we will be offering online booking services for initial and follow up consultations from the website, with each of us. Payment will be made at the time of booking, and re-scheduling will be possible up to 48 hours before the appointment. For those of you that wish to book in and pay at the time of treatment, this will still be available. This system will give you automated e-mail confirmation, and text and e-mail reminders, which we do manually at present.

    New Prices

    From January 2002, there will be a small price increase. Our prices have only changed twice in the past 6 years.

    Initial consultation and treatment:
    Kaye and Julie £65 
    Carolyn £85

    Follow-up appointments:
    Kaye and Julie £58
    Carolyn £78

      We look forward to supporting your health as this year draws to a close. Look out for some seasonal winter tips in December.

      Carolyn, Kaye and Julie.

      Autumn has arrived. It's Ok to feel sad.

      Autumn has arrived.

      It is always a slight shock to me, the transition into Autumn, even though I know it's coming! The whole of the Northern hemisphere starts to contract and cool down, calm down, prepare, clear, de-clutter, let go.

      I watched with wonder as a hedgehog in our garden busied itself one day, coming out from under its wood pile, collecting mouthfuls of leaves, and scuttling back under to prepare its winter bed.

      We are once again being invited to adapt, to change to match our natural environment. This adaptation, both physically and emotionally, supports our bodies and mind. There is internal space for flow and movement.

      It's late Summer. A time to pause...

      More Cycles of Change.

      Change is a constant in life. Adapting to that change is the challenge that we all face. The natural world continues to be our greatest teacher, and I believe that when we walk with Mother Earth with no fight, but with kindness and compassion, our lives have a sense of ease and purpose. We all have times that are in opposition to this flow, but we can expand and grow through these difficult times with some support and self awareness. The ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) reminds us of our unique human position, being held between Heavan and Earth.
      The external world is loud and quite unsettling globally, but we can choose to engage or not. Remaining steady and detached does not mean that we do not care. It simply means that we care deeply about our own mental and physical health. When we are taking great care, then we have the energy and resources to serve others. In this newsletter, I will talking about;

      • Ellie's return as Tai Chi instructor!
      • A change in administrative support.
      • Some simple Covid facts
      • Preparing for treatments, and aftercare.
      • Seasonal advice.

      East meds West Podcast episode 3. Fate, luck or destiny.

      I am really excited to share this episode of East meds West with you. Creating this particular episode has been quite a journey. Stepping way out of the comfort of the clinic setting, interviewing someone in the world of advertising, and learning to edit the whole thing, has been really fascinating for me personally.

      Luck, Fate and Destiny.
