‘Practical Methods for Self-Care’ talk with Tobey Williamson
ROCKLAND - A talk on Practical Methods for Self-Care will be given at Good Tern Natural Foods Cooperative Market on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2-3:30 p.m., with Tobey Williamson, L.Ac. He will speak on blending Eastern and Western understandings of the body systems in pursuit of health.
The event is free, but pre-register requested at 594-8822. The Co-op is located at 750 Main St. in Rockland.
Williamson is licensed in acupuncture and herbal medicine in Maine and Hawaii. He practices Seitai Shinpo Japanese structural acupuncture, which he learned in Hawaii as an apprentice to a master teacher there.
In his talk, Williamson will address questions such as: "How does aspirin know to go right to where the pain is, every time?" "How does acupuncture work?" The answer he gives is the same in both cases: the circulation of the blood.
He said: "We will also discuss some simple methods for staying healthy during cold and flu season, including basic nutrition and easy-to-learn techniques to reduce aches and pains. I will start with a belly breathing exercise and end with a Sotai Ho movement exercise." Williamson's mission is to help people discover that the body is built to heal itself.
