Year of the Snake
Happy New Year!
February 10th marks the Chinese New Year and the year of the Black Snake. Contrary to what you might think, ancient Chinese wisdom states that a snake in your house is a good omen! And, so we embark on the Year of the Snake; a year that is expected to bring transformation through thoughtful introspection.
It may be a year of great achievements and new beginnings, but those will come from disciplined planning and attention to detail. Envision how a snake moves in the water: quietly watching, observing and preparing for opportunity. The snake embodies Yin energy….Yin being the more quiet, peaceful, contemplative parts of ourselves. It is this Yin energy that so often gets thrown out of balance as a result of our daily, hectic, multi-tasking lives!
To help honor the Chinese New Year, OMBE will offer 30% off an Initial Acupuncture Session when you mention this blog post and book your session the week of Monday 2/11 - Friday 2/15 ! Come find out how we can help you make the most of The Year of the Snake! Our front desk staff can help you book your sessions ~ 617.447.2222.
