Name: Lauren Curtain

TCM area of specialty: Women’s health & fertility.

1. Your star sign: Aries Sun / Libra Rising / Gemini Moon

2. Most fascinating fact about the body: That the origins of the elements inside our atoms originated from exploding stars in space 😮

3. 2 foods to avoid for bloat: Processed sugars and greasy fried foods.

4. Never accept the following ailment: Symptomatic menstrual cycles!

5. Favourite acupuncture point and why. So many favourites! I love Liver 4 for it’s reliable ability to release Liver stagnation and Blood stagnation in the lower abdomen. Wonderful for women experiencing menstrual irregularities, severe period pain as well as extreme stress. Another I have to mention is Ren 17, the beautiful point in the center of our chest that connects to the heart and sends the Heart Qi down to nourish the womb 💕

6. Favourite form of energy healing? The very tangible healing we get from being in nature.

7. 3 chinese herbs you can’t live without: This is a tough one! If I had to pick just three… Ginger (Sheng Jiang), Angelica root (Dang Gui) and Goji berries (Gou Qi Zi)
