A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring strategies for holistic health, happiness, and personal evolution: what it takes to be well in a busy world. Blending the wisdom of Chinese Medicine, functional medicine, Ayurveda, neuroscience and psychology, you'll get practical tips you can use right away. You know that health and happiness aren’t things you can outsource. You’ve also got a full plate, you're a giver, 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, a holistic health coach, 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. While not strictly an acupuncture / Chinese Medicine podcast, it's not "not" an acupuncture podcast.

A consistent theme in this show is empowering you to embody self-respect through daily actions; to take small steps in the direction of better. The body is always seeking balance and homeostasis through its own intelligence and there are usually actions we can take to help support that process. One such way is using points on the body to take care of yourself through acupressure.

Katie Pedrick, L.Ac. joins us for this conversation to unpack some of the self-care possibilities that come from putting your own hands on your body. As another proponent of empowering you to support your body's natural intelligence, Katie co-founded the Moxa Acupressure app as a way to further put the process into your hands.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Katie's journey to Chinese Medicine after starting out studying western medicine
  • What led her to creating the Moxa app to expand access for patients
  • How acupressure can be applied for a noticeable effect on our health
  • The method for providing personalization in the app and why that’s important
  • An example of how to access a point with acupressure

Katie Pedrick is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist with a thriving practice in Boston (VIBE Wellness), as well as the cofounder of the Moxa Acupressure app. She began her career in cancer and pharmaceutical research with a masters in biotechnology from Harvard University, then turned her attention to Eastern medicine, earning her doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental medicine from the Pacific College of Health Sciences. She is passionate about combining modern western science with ancient eastern wisdom, and is on a mission to empower others to reach their most vibrant health through accessible wellness.
