Portland Pedal Power enjoys the feeling that comes with a healthy mind and body. It can be hard to make time for yourself, what with work, laundry, and the holidays coming up… But sometimes, you need to stop and get some You time. 

The Wellspring School for Healing Arts knows how important it is, and that’s why we are happy to be promoting their Amma Therapy Student Clinic, starting up this coming January 2015. Read on for more details: 

Shoulders tense? Muscles sore? Immune system kicking in high gear with the colder weather?

Are you looking for some great stocking stuffers for friends and family that give the gift of health this season and beyond?

Well, look no further. The Wellspring School for Healing Arts Amma Therapy Student Clinic is starting up in January 2015 and will run (almost) weekly on Wednesdays through September.

In case you haven’t head about Amma Therapy yet, it’s a form of holistic health care based on the principles of Chinese Medicine that fuses nutrition, herbs, movement, and a circular style of  massage that stimulates the same points as acupuncture, without the needles. Among many other things, it’s fantastic for strengthening the immune system – not a bad idea considering the typical length of the Pacific Northwest winters, we think.

You can start booking clinic appointments now or purchase pre-paid packages or appointments for holiday gifts. Check out the details on the clinic tab on the classes page.

The clinics are part of the curriculum for soon-to-graduate Amma Therapy students at The Wellspring School for Healing Arts. Community connections are a core ingredient of the school philosophy, and the clinics are one of the ways students (supervised by their instructors) share their skills and knowledge with the local Portland community throughout their educational journey.
