Episode 234: Self-healing with Acupressure – There’s an App for That
with Katie Pedrick, L.Ac.
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.
