ELDOA

Have you heard of ELDOA? We are so honored Sarah King, classically trained acupuncturist, Pilates teacher and ELDOA instructor, is offering this form of exercise and healing for Blue Heron’s patients! (She also does a ton of work with us behind the scenes but we’ll focus on her offerings for YOU here.) Having attended Sarah’s classes and her Level I ELDOA Teacher Training, I have been blown away by how quickly effective these exercises are for chronic tension and pain. Bonus points: you feel great afterward because they also retrain your brain and nervous system.

ELDOA was developed by a French osteopath and consists of specific movements to target particular levels of the spine, strengthening your alignment, mobility, flexibility and core. Read more “ELDOA”

we are now seeing patients coronavirus

Now seeing patients

Our doors are open for you! We are available for office and virtual appointments. Please call so we may help find the best option for you.

Having been deemed an essential business, we have studiously examined and procured disinfecting products, dialogued amongst our team, and prepared new protocols to keep our clinic safe for you and our practitioners.

To help us provide care for you during this unprecedented time, please comply with the following protocols:

*Wait for your practitioner to text you before entering the building.

*Wear a face mask. Please bring your own if you have one to help us maintain our supplies. If you do not, we will supply one.

*We cannot accommodate family members in the lobby or treatment rooms (unless you are a parent staying with your child during treatment).*Unfortunately, we cannot see you in the clinic if you exhibit cold or flu symptoms. If you have a cold, flu or coronavirus, schedule a virtual herbal consult – herbs are incredibly effective for such conditions. If you think you have allergies, discuss with your practitioner prior to scheduling.

We look forward to supporting you with this medicine and our hearts!

Ginger

Ginger is an excellent food grade herb to consume regularly during these days of coronavirus. The spiciness of ginger helps open the lungs and dissolve phlegm as well as support the body’s circulation. We say it releases the exterior, which equates to opening the pores so your body is more readily able to expel pathogens it encounters, including viral ones.

Ginger is a common folk remedy to reduce nausea, and luck would have it that this is also true for Chinese herbal medicine as well. Read more “Ginger”
