Friday the 12th of February is the Chinese New Year! Welcome to 2021 – the Year of the Ox. If you were born in 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973 1985 1997, 2009 or 2021 – you are an Ox!
In Chinese culture, the Ox is a valued animal. Oxen are the hard workers in the background, intelligent and reliable, but never demanding praise. Because of its role in agriculture, positive characteristics, such as being hardworking and honest, are attributed to it.
This year of the Ox brings career advancement, success in business, prosperity, and wellness for all zodiac signs. That seems like very good news, after all we endured in 2020. Even if there are further challenges ahead, the Ox should bring solid ground for us all.
At Ondol we are starting the year with a new and fresh look to the clinic. Over the holidays, we painted the interior and we are so pleased with how much it has brightened our beautiful space. We hope you agree it is quite a sanctuary from the hectic world outside and we look forward to welcoming you back this year to share this peaceful space with us. And with our beautiful therapeutic garden continuing to establish itself, we are commencing outdoor yoga classes in March with Annie. We are taking now expressions of interest, so let us know if you would like to put your name down.
This year, we are excited to welcome a new member to our Ondol family – Roshelle, who is a clinical nutritionist.
Roshelle sees every meal as an opportunity to fuel our bodies with nutrients to support overall health and wellness. Her approach is individualised and holistic, and incorporates all aspects of health, including nutrition, mindfulness and movement. With individualised dietary planning, she sees food as a medicinal tool. She also provides easy recipes and tools to support you to optimal health. Roshelle will be working at the clinic on Wednesdays, so please contact us if you would like to book an appointment with her.
Due to popular demand, Alice has increased her working days to three times per week and will now be available Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays for acupuncture and Chinese massage (Tui Na). Kelly continues her post graduate training in Kampo, which is a traditional Japanese herbal medicine that sees the human body and mind as inseparable and a balance of physical and mental as essential for human health. If you are interested, have a chat with Kelly about how this could support you on your health journey.
Finally, other exciting news, Hae-Uk became an Australian on Australia Day. So, congratulations Hae-Uk. She also continues her studies in herbal medicine with the Institute of Classical East Asian medicine during this year.
Looking forward to walking with you once more on your healthy living journey again in 2021.
