Get the Skinny on Blood Sugar and How to Manage It!

The media is teeming with articles warning us of the meteoric rise of Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes in the US.  Do you have the most current information?

Do you wonder how you might best prevent blood sugar problems for yourself and/or for your clients and loved ones?  Michael Gaeta LAc, CND, will be offering a Sunday morning micro workshop on Optimizing Glycemic Control.  This class will give you a snapshot of how to deal with blood sugar issues wholistically.   You will leave better educated, and with the necessary tools to maintain healthy glycemic levels for life.

This class is open to student and health care practitioners, as well as the community.

The class is eligible for Continuing Ed credits.

I want to personally encourage you to consider taking this class with us at The Wellspring School.  I can say firsthand that Michael is an inspired and informed presenter.  I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Michael for 22 years. We were Amma Therapy classmates, back in the day, and our professional paths continued to cross over the years. Michael used to travel to Idaho to teach our business classes and was so well liked that he still provides mentorship to a handful of practitioners who graduated from those programs.  Michael has taught for Standard Process and Mediherb all over the United States and is always well received.  We are fortunate to have the opportunity to bring him to the Wellspring.  Let’s give him a cheery Portland welcome!

The class is Sunday, Nov. 4th from 9-1pm $40.

Mindful Movement is Great for Everyone!

Mindful Movement is one of the Eight Limbs of Chinese Medicine and an essential component of health and wellbeing for everyone. At The Wellspring School for Healing Arts we enjoy being able to offer quality classes for the community that fall under the Mindful Movement umbrella, including both T’ai Chi Chuan and Qigong. Mindful movement helps synchronize your mind and body, keep you focused, in balance and healthier overall. The best part of Mindful Movement is that absolutely anyone can do it!

We also view these practices as indispensible components of our Amma Bodywork Therapy program and have incorporated 90 hours of T’ai Chi and Qigong classes into the overall curriculum. Giving students the opportunity to learn and practice mindful movement throughout the course of the program is a differentiator for their success as students as well as future practitioners. Our next Amma Bodywork Therapy program begins in February 2013! Click here to learn more about the program and to download your copy of the student handbook.

Check out a brief T’ai Chi demo in the below video given by lead Amma instructor, Michael Guida, BPS, LMT #19016. For more information and to register for any of our movement or meditation classes, click here.
