Acupuncture for Artists

Repetitive strain injuries and fatigue from working long hours and meeting deadlines can get in the way of being productive and simply enjoying the act of creating. Acupuncture excels for this type of strain, but it also works at the deeper levels where our physical, mental and emotional lives interact. Creativity and expression are at the heart of an artist’s work, though they don’t always come easily. Creative blocks, depression, worry, fear, stress, insomnia—all of these can get in the way of your art. Acupuncture is a physical therapy that frees up the mind, balances emotions, and reconnects our inner experience with our outer expression. This interactive workshop offers practical advice and useful exercises for visual artists, musicians, movement artists, and creatives of all kinds.

Wednesday May 30, 7-8pm @ Studio 106 – Artscape Youngplace
