I recently was privileged to attend a lecture by Wanvisa Inthep. Wanvisa is the owner of Inthakin Green Village. She is a healer, a practitioner of Traditional Thai Medicine and a highly educated women in both modern and ancient practices. She is also a dear friend, the daughter of my heart.
I learned so much at her lecture and, with her permission, I am sharing the pertinent points with you.
What is Traditional Thai Medicine?
Diagnosis and Treatment
I recognize that this is a most basic of presentations for practices that are ancient, revered and highly complex. Wanvisa is in the process of the development of programs where this knowledge can be passed down and preserved. I promise to keep you updated. In the meantime, if you are in the Chiang Mai area, consider a visit to Inthakin Green Village…healing happens there!
Yi Peng is a beautiful festival celebrated throughout Thailand, especially here in Chiang Mai. It’s a beautiful time for community and visitors. Folks gather all over the city, usually close to the river. Lanterns are released into the sky. Loy Krathong (small handmade boats, decorated with flowers) are sent down the river. It’s a beautiful way to set your intentions for the coming year, send blessings up for loved ones and to let go of anything you no longer need. Enjoy our pictures from this year’s Yi Peng.
Keidra King is an amazing woman and a dynamic force behind much that is positive here in Chiang Mai. She is a healer, a teacher and a proponent of many health and wellness practices. One of these is earthing.
Being grounded and making a connection to nature has many benefits! Plus it feels wonderful! Recently Keidra took some of our Chiang Mai family on a fabulous tour of the Erotic Garden and the Queen’s Garden. It was a great day of earthing and friendship!
Some benefits of earthing:
- Improves Sleep
- Reduces Inflammation
- Stress Relief
- Relieves Muscle Soreness
- Promotes Healing
- Provides Antioxidants
- Improves Blood Circulation
Earthing is simple and easy to do. Simply stand and walk barefoot on grass, sand or dirt. Take a stroll along a riverbed, at a park or at the sea shore. Enjoy the sunshine and the sights that surround you.
I hope you will get outside and enjoy earthing soon. Please share your experience with us!
