Welcome to Life + Lemons! I'm Kimberley - Chinese medicine practitioner, acupuncturist, women's health educator and (MASSIVE) self-care advocate. This idea started with a simple seed of an idea, to empower my patients with the tools and techniques to take treatment beyond the treatment table.
So often we get fixated on what we need to do to feel better, to do better, to be better. Be it a yoga class or therapeutic treatment, we're always looking externally for solutions. It's always someone else that can fix us, right? Because we don't know enough, we're not experienced enough, we're not confident enough... sound familiar?
I know this because I've been there. In fact, sod it, I still am!
Self care isn't easy. But with time, patience and a big smooch of self love, slowly these transient moments of "care" become habits. Unconscious, unknowing states of mind whereby we take a step back, take a breath and give back to ourselves as we give to others.
There are so many tools and techniques that we have right at our finger tips, if only we were to dig a little deeper and reveal these truths to ourselves, rather than fulfilling this perpetuating cycle of self sabotage.
So, Life + Lemons was born from the knowledge that our health is in our hands, and that we have the power to create positive and sustainable changes to our own health. In the words of the legendary Tony Robbins, "All I need is within me now".
By combining my love of all things Chinese medicine, I am creating a growing collection of self-care techniques to share with those strong, courageous women of the world. Women that so readily give their love and attention to others, but who are perhaps guilty of not reflecting on their own needs.
Change begins with you. As a very wise and beautiful friend of mine told me when I was low and in pain, "fill your cup full. Your light and energy will then be infinite and naturally spill over effortlessly to those you choose to surround yourself with".
Allow Life + Lemons to help you fill your cup and create those healthy self-care rituals in your daily life.
With all my love and light,
Acupuncturist & clinic owner of Urban Acupuncture, Sheffield UK.
