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

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.
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;
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.
Our last pop-up event was the cafe, which was so popular! We are one of the many Barrow small businesses selling our wares on Sunday in the driveway. There will be a map available of all businesses, so you could make a nice walk around the village, and buy some local produce and gifts!
