A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring self-care strategies, personal evolution, Chinese Medicine, and what it takes to be well in a busy world. You know that health and happiness aren’t things you can outsource. You’ve also got a full plate, and making the time to take care of yourself can be challenging. A Healthy Curiosity is here to support you. Host Brodie Welch, L.Ac., is an expert in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, as well as a teacher and practitioner of qi gong, meditation, yoga, lifestyle and diet counseling who tries to walk her talk about health and mindfulness as a recovering Type-A, parent, and business owner. You'll find interviews with fellow experts in Chinese Medicine and natural health care about the conditions we treat and strategies we use clinically; simple self-care tips to help you feel calm, centered, and energized; and personal chats where we explore what gets in the way of our best intentions: perfectionism, big goals, habits and routines, chronic pain, overwork and overwhelm, boundaries, limiting beliefs — and what it takes to overcome such obstacles mindfully.

Content warning: non-graphic mention of sexual assault

 

Most people dig the idea of a full-body massage, but did you know you could DIY?

 

In Episode 48 of A Healthy Curiosity, host Brodie Welch, L.Ac. talks with Gin Burchfield, BS, CYT, LMBT, about the benefits of self-massage, known in the Ayurvedic tradition as Abhyanga. The benefits of massage are many and varying, and they penetrate all layers of our being: physical, mental, emotional, and sometimes spiritual. Listen in as Gin and Brodie discuss the ways that Abhyanga has helped them as a modality of both healing and self-care.

 

In this episode, we explore:

  • What is abhyanga? What does it do?
  • How do you perform abhyanga?
  • How might an Ayurvedic newbie build up to abhyanga?
  • A Sanskrit inspired chant to go along with your self-massage practice
