Your inner child? There is so much richness of experience available to you wen you start looking at what you really need. And when you give it to yourself... magical transformation starts to take place within and around you.

Chinese Medicine encourages us to feed our emotional selves through meditation, movement, periods of rest and retreat, and regular cleansing of the digestive and emotional systems.
