The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a leader in promoting sustainable health care will be there taking in new patients. They are the “Best of the Bay” in service, proudly diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco since 1981. ACTCM provides effective, affordable treatment for a wide variety of conditions and diseases using acupuncture, herbs and other healing modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Dr. Lawlor, the Upper Cervical Chiropractor of San Francisco, is hoping he won’t need to do any adjustments at the show. He specifically evaluates, measures and monitors head-neck alignment and also helps with other neurological disorders from headaches and migraines, to TMJ dysfunction and traumatic events. Stop by to see if you need an adjustment or become a regular patient for 2016.

Spring Wellness Pop-up

Spring is a time for renewal. Just as the nature around us, it’s a season that makes us feel like blooming and starting anew. While many of us are making the time to organize and clean our spaces, we also need to remember our most important space: our bodies.

In addition to shopping for sustainable locally made goods, refresh your body and mind at Urban Air Market next weekend with a Wellness pop-up in Patricia’s Green that includes:

  • Aromatherapy with Organic Devotion
  • Massage with KneadNetwork
  • Yoga with Yoga Tree
  • Chiropractic with Life Chiropractic

    Here are some great Yogic tips from Yoga Tree to keep you feeling refreshed this Spring: 

    1. Always listen to your body and breath. Only you know how the poses feel. The breath can give you clues about when to go deeper into a pose and when to modify.

    2. Don’t over do it. Rest and modify when you need to.  When in doubt ask your teacher if you are unsure about doing a pose.

    3. Every day is a new day on the mat. Don’t expect things to go the same way they did last time.

    4. Alignment is important but so is your own rhythm. Try to strike a good balance between doing the poses and experiencing the flow within them. This gets easier with practice.

    5. Have fun! Yoga is about being present and exploring your body and mind. Enjoy the ride and notice the things that show up on your mat. Be patient with yourself and remain open to learning.

     

    Yoga Tree will be offering two FREE yoga classes in the park. Join Marissa Nasca at 12:30pm or Ishwari Jay at 2pm. Bring your own mat. All levels welcome!
