Are you Looking but not Seeing?

By Steve Coster / 4th August 2020

One of the things I noticed during the lockdown was how often I have my head down looking at my phone.  I eventually uninstalled Facebook, not only because I was looking at it far too much, but also because it made me feel bad for not totally redecorating the house or learning a new language. […]

Breathing the Qi Gong Way

By Steve Coster / 12th May 2020

How are you all feeling?  These are difficult times, especially if you are prone to feeling anxious anyway.   It’s  the uncertainty of what lies ahead that makes me feel a bit anxious.  The trick is to stay in the moment, by which I mean, trying not to dwell on the past or the future […]

What day is it? Acupuncture under Lockdown

By Steve Coster / 18th April 2020

Is it week 3 or week 4 of lockdown? I’ve lost track of time.  As an Acupuncturist who works evenings and weekends it’s difficult keeping track of the days anyway.  When I was younger and working in the city, the structure of the week was very rigid. Monday was the start of the week; I […]

Life in a World of Imbalance

By Steve Coster / 9th March 2020

We live in a world that is out of balance.  The planet itself is not out of balance of course, it just does what it has always done.  The imbalance I’m talking about is within us; we just project that on to everything else. Did you know that between the war years of 1940 and […]
