Tai Chi Progression Ceremony

Tai Chi Progression Ceremony

Dear friends,

We want to extend a special thank you to all who participated in White Magnolia’s Progression Ceremony last month! It was wonderful finally to be able to gather with the community and witness all of the work and intention that our students put into their Tai Chi and Chi Kung practices. We couldn’t be happier and more proud of this community.

If you’re unfamiliar with our school, we offer classes in-person outdoors and on zoom throughout the week with our wonderful instructors. Tai Chi is a mind-body practice that originated in China as a martial art. It’s a gentle form of exercise that improves balance, builds strength and flexibility, boosts immunity, relieves pain – and fosters community!

If you’re curious about Tai Chi and Chi Kung and would like a free trial week of classes, just hit the button below. We’d love to have you!

“When I joined White Magnolia in January 2010 I was suffering from severe lower back pain. The many classes in both restorative Tai Chi and beginners Tai Chi enabled my back to heal and greatly reduced my need for both prescription and non-prescription pain killers.” A grateful student

“Not only have I received excellent instruction from all the instructors at White Magnolia, but there is also a lovely feeling of family among the students and instructors. I feel as though I receive private instruction, even though I am in a group setting, and I believe my practice has deepened because of this.” A.R.

Although my preference is for person classes, the two
years on Zoom as a result of the pandemic were in fact very beneficial and indeed enhanced my practice during a seemingly endless and difficult time of isolation. I really do feel my Tai Chi got better in spite of, or because of, the Zoom classes! I was able to continue seeing and practicing with classmates and friends, albeit on a computer screen, by which we could share our COVID anxieties, frustrations, and fears and at the same time continue our Tai Chi practice. It is with deep gratitude that I am a part of the White Magnolia “family.” Janet

She wanted more than just drugs for the pain

She wanted more than just drugs for the pain

Dear friends,

A patient was offered a prescription for painkillers after injuring her shoulder on vacation. But, she wanted more than just temporary relief. Like many others, she wanted to know what was wrong and what could be done to fix it. Her injury was resolved with sports acupuncture. Watch her story below.

Is shoulder pain getting in the way? Many of our patients were told, “We’ve done all we can do for you,” or were prescribed medication that just masked the pain. Sports acupuncture at White Magnolia Acupuncture and Tai Chi targets what’s missing from conventional interventions by identifying and treating the root cause of the pain.

If shoulder pain is keeping you from living your full life, make an appointment today for a sports acupuncture assessment & treatment. Let’s see how we can get you back to living life without pain.

Now Booking Cupping Only Sessions

Now Booking Cupping Only Sessions

Dear friends,

We’re so excited to share the latest addition to our clinic offerings: cupping sessions!

Cupping is an integral part of the Sports Acupuncture sessions that we do in the clinic, but we wanted to offer cupping on its own for those patients who want to try Chinese Medicine without the needles.

Check out this video to see Dr. Zoe work with fire cupping!

Cupping is great for sore and tight muscles, but it can also be used to treat:

  • acute or chronic asthma
  • residual cough from a cold or virus
  • painful menstrual cramps
  • tension headaches and more

Give us a call at 510-570-8195 to schedule your cupping appointment today!

In good health,

Zoe, Jacquie & John
