I’m happy to be speaking at the Lotus Collaborative about healing disordered eating patterns using Chinese medicine. This will be an introduction to the concepts of Chinese medicine with an exploration into how food therapy, herbs and acupuncture can assist in healing from eating disorders.
September’s Session: Acupuncture
Presenter: Rachel Farber, M.S., L.Ac
Tuesday September 16th, 7:00pm-8:30pm
The Lotus Collaborative invite you to join us for an evening with Rachel Farber, M.S., L.Ac. specializing in women’s health.
Rachel will discuss how Chinese medicine can be a vital component of the healing process for people seeking to make peace with food, body image, and their outlook on life. Chinese medicine uses acupuncture, heat therapy, herbs, food therapy, and massage to liberate stuck energy, eliminate toxins, and nourish deficiencies. It can help with common issues such as mood disorders, digestive problems, and hormonal imbalance, making it an effective adjunct to therapy and the deep inner work required for full recovery.
Rachel is a licensed acupuncturist specializing in women’s health and mental-emotional health, particularly working with people who struggle with disordered eating, depression, addiction, and hormonal imbalances. She is passionate about helping people live comfortably in their bodies. She partners with her clients to help them make peace with food and to make lifestyle choices that support vitality.
Rachel has been an acupuncturist since 2000. In addition to private practice, she is on the faculty of Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA. She also conducts group and private workshops for women who want to feel more at home in their bodies. She is the author of the upcoming book, Nourished Heart: A Holistic Guide for Making Peace with Food.
