Ways to help stimulate, gather and circulate all the bodies fluids. : chi, blood, lymph, CSF, synovial fluid and water and eliminate waste.

Congential & Acquired Chi.
Information is stored in and through our genes and DNA passed down the generations from family and via the ancestral line.

Epigenetics is a hot topic. Working with proper nutrients and eating well through pregnancy, providing the growing baby all that it needs to grow in a healthy way.
