 Rest Vs Activity; a Chinese philosophical approach



Have a personal health assessment through pulses and learn from an ancient Chinese perspective. Acupuncturist and nutritional therapist Eloise Minton presents a talk on the benefits of Rest vs Activity through a Chinese philosophical lens. She will discuss the far-reaching consequences of ‘burnout’, considering the impact on our spirit, emotions, meridian system, reproductive health and overall health. 

In this talk she touches on Chinese 5 element theory, seasonal cycles, dao, and yin yang theory. Her wish is to offer insight, support and practical advice on how we can each find our own point of balance (in this crazy world!). 



Eloise is a classical acupuncturist with a Bachelor of Science (hons) in Oriental medicine and acupuncture from the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM), UK.

She is a nutritional therapist with an advanced diploma in nutritional healing from the Nutri-heal foundation. 

She has a particular interest in working with psycho-spiritual-emotional imbalances and reproductive health. 

Combining her interests in natural, non-pharmaceutical approaches to healing, Eloise offers a holistic approach; using acupuncture, naturopathic techniques, nutrition and lifestyle advice to support her clients to establish better health. Based in Brighton & London.
