Perspectives on Health

Western medicine makes use of the SOAP note (an acronym for subjective, objective, assessment, and plan) as a means of documenting patient encounters, evaluating a person’s health, and noting a procedure/medication/intervention.Traditional Chinese medicine employs a similar system, but as an older, holistic, and non-technology based modality, it breaks things down a bit differently. This free 1-hour talk with Justin Sieg, a licensed acupuncturist, will explore these differences, and how they relate to your own concepts of health and wellness. The lecture will take place at Community Acupuncture + Natural Health on Saturday, February 25th, from 11:00am to 12:00pm, and you can register for the event by clicking here.
