Close to home in Arlington is one of the best kept secrets I know. Heavenly Bodies Clinic.
I saw Kathe Ana last night for acupuncture for my joints. No real pain, just as a preventive measure considering the walking & the hiking. Keeping the chi moving. My treatment was relaxing as it put me into a near sleep for what felt like hours but in reality could not have been more than 15 minutes. I left energized & happy – an easy mood to recognize after spending any amount of time with Kathe Ana!
She has taught me the wonderful practice of gua sha which has helped me tremendously. I carry my own gua sha kit with me in my day pack whenever I hike. I work on my knees when they feel inflamed; last night Kathe Ana helped me with an Achilles treatment to add to my repertoire. Jason had a great “what in the hell?” look on his face when I did a little gua sha on a break during our last big hike, & continued munching on his granola. Who knows? Maybe he will become a fan.
