🌿Yerba mate is such a strong one. Yerba mate calls us to ground down and center in our selves and our roots, as we rise up towards a more energized, awakened, and lively state. 🌿 This is a traditional South American drink that is popular for boosting energy and raising vibrations. Yerba mate can enhance mental function, mood, and alertness too. 🌿 With a cooling energy and very slight bitter taste, Yerba mate is a good one to infuse in the mornings. ✨
It’s incredible how physical space can impact our mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. I’m so honored to do healing work at @healhaus , a space that feels like home for everyone who steps foot in the door. Shoutout to @elisashankle for her special touch in every corner of the space. • At Heal Haus, I offer private sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and community offerings on a monthly basis. • This Saturday, I’ll be offering Community Acupuncture, which takes place in the stunning community room pictured here. This is where the magic happens; the love, the healing, the vibes. At this time, community acupuncture is $39, making it super affordable and accessible for folks. I set the vibe with incense, candles, and upful tunes. You can head to the link in my bio to book your slot for this Saturday! • As always, I’m looking forward to holding and sharing space with you. Heal yourself. Heal your neighbor. Heal the world. ✨

And what a beautiful thing that...every ending...is also a beginning. Have to give thanks for all the lessons that every experience provides and take refuge in the fact that everything comes and goes in waves. And despite what it may appear like, everything is going according to the natural cycles and rhythms of the cosmos. Ultimately, all is well and all will be well. Just ask the plants...🌿🌱🍃
🌿 Imagine: the Creator loved us so much that they whispered instructions to the plants so they could heal us. Imagine: what can ultimately heal us is already all around us...
One of the simplest nutrition suggestions? Eat every color of the rainbow, every day. 🌈 🥝 🍓 🍊🍉
Just had a great conversation with a certain magazine’s beauty editor (who was soooo lovely) around crystals and holistic skincare. So, I thought I’d do a quick post here too on one of my favorite cosmetic tools to use in practice. ✨ Gua sha is a tool used in Chinese medicine to improve the circulation of blood, qi, and lymph. I use a gua sha tool made out of jade crystal and I do a little gua sha at every Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture session to help my clients get the best results. Benefits of facial gua sha: •Reduced swelling and puffiness of the face •Gives the skin a natural glowy look •Plumps and tightens the skin •Sculpts the cheekbones and jawline •Evens out the skin’s time and color Sounds pretty sweet to me! I offer this service at both of my practice locations. Book your service using the link in my bio.✨
Next Community Acupuncture workshop is THIS SATURDAY at @healhaus from 2:30-5:30. Quality healing vibes. Affordable cost. Community setting. Incense. Instrumental reggae/dub tunes this time.

🌽 Question: Do you know where your food comes from? Do you ever think about how it got to your plate? 🌽 One prayer I’ve been working with before eating is “Bless the Creator, Bless the farmer, Bless the cooker, and Bless the eater”. 🌽 The food that we are blessed to eat goes through so many steps before it gets to our mouths. So many hands. Hours. Faces. Places. Sacrifices. Effort. Intentions. Energy. 🌽 Take time to reflect and give thanks. It could’ve all been so different in a different time and/or different space. 🌽 P.s. My mom bought these beauties from a farm in upstate New York this past weekend. They are so so so sweet.
The simple fact of the matter is this; sometimes the medicine is sweet and sometimes the medicine is bitter. 🌿 The healing process doesn’t always feel good. Or taste good. Or sound good. It’s not always comfortable. Sometimes we need to be coddled and soothed. Sometimes we need to be challenged, pushed, awakened. 🌿 There are times when healing leaves you feeling uplifted, blissful, and hopeful. Then there are other times when the feelings and thoughts you’ve kept suppressed for so long come out of the darkness and into the light, leaving you raw and open, maybe burning, like the earth after a forrest Fire. 🌿 The thing is that the medicine is still the medicine, even when it’s bitter and harsh. The healing is still happening. 🌿 Be where you are. Trust the process. Trust the medicine. Trust in the miracle of change. Trust yourself. Deep breaths.
If only you understood the power of manifestation, you would guard your heart and words like magic. ✨ I’ve been tapping into the magic of speaking things into existence for the past few years. It works. ✨ • • • 📷: @pinterest

Current food vibe: Food is your friend (not the enemy). Have fun with your food. Eat all the colors of the rainbow. Make it pretty. Give thanks.
Finally have a big-girl briefcase. I love this @stevemadden one so much. Totally feel like a boss-babe when I rock it to meetings. Ultimately, confidence comes from within. But a boss accessory can elevate it even more. Also, summer palette shoes. 👠 💼 👩🏾⚕️
Totally into this Moringa powder from @kulikulifoods . It’s been a delicious addition to my daily green smoothies. I talk about Moringa all the time at my herbal medicine workshops and wrote an in depth post about it on my blog a few years ago (check it out!). 🌿 Moringa is the definition of a superfood. It’s packed with such a vast variety of vitamins, minerals, and even protein. One really cool fact about Moringa is that it grows like crazy when planted in the right environment. In Haiti in particular, it grows pretty much effortlessly. Think about the impact this has not only on environmental sustainability and reforestation but on public health and individual nutrition as well. Moringa can literally feed the earth and the people, in abundance. 🌿 Very happy with this supplement powder! Thanks to the kind folks at Kuli kuli for sending some my way.

I’ve been enjoying connecting with lovely Jasmine as of late. Jasmine flowers are gorgeous and have the most enchanting scent, treasured as a relaxant in aromatherapy. In many cultures, Jasmine is revered for its potent feminine energy and aphrodisiac effects. I love a simple Jasmine tea. Might throw some shatavari and oatstraw in there too for some sweet vibes. 🌿 A big theme of this month for me is women’s health and feminine energy. I have some cool offerings coming your way, so stay tuned and stay connected. 🌿
