We Are All In This Together

As I hop out of my daily epsom salt + lavender bath,  I get an uncontrollable urge to write. That might be because I haven't done it in a while or maybe because I've been on social media way too much these past few days. 

I know by now we have all seen what is going on in the world about COVID-19 and I can't help but feel overwhelmed with the outpour of information provided by everyone.

I admit to getting caught up with sharing memes on instagram, tweets and snaps. As much as I was doing all this to spread information to everyone I also feel like it's my responsibility as an influencer to help you stay calm during these stressful times. 

This short post is to remind you to take deep breaths. Take a break to be home with your family. We need to be mindful of everyones health at this time. With that said,  you can still support your local restaurants/shops by ordering out. Here are some of my favorites.

they support refugees and asylum seekers )

During this break i'll be home as much as possible catching up on my favorite shows and reading The 7 1/2 Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. Stay safe guys and remember to wash your hands.

What you Should Know Before Your First Acupuncture

9 East 4th Street
New York, NY 10003

Over the weekend I was invited to an acupuncture clinic for the first time in my life! The place was called ORA, a new luxurious acupuncture clinic located in NOHO (second location coming soon to the UES). 

For those of you who aren't familiar with acupuncture, it's basically a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine in which needles are inserted into your body. 

ORA is finally bringing traditional techniques of ancient Chinese medicine into our modern world. Their making it super convenient to walk into a calm and relaxing space, speak privately with an acupuncturist before deciding on which treatment is best for you. 

They offer a luxurious experience of customizable acupuncture along with herbal teas & tonics.
Ora focuses on pain, sexual health, GI + digestion, immunity, emotion/mental health and optimization. Each treatment customize for each individual.

Aside from acupuncture, ORA also offers cupping (which I'm going to try next). Price ranges from $50-$130. The experience is worth every penny. Intro (65 minutes, $130), Essential (50 minutes, $120) and Express (30 minutes, $50).
