Join us on November 20th as Stéphane Pépin and Salia Qiao from Clinique Aurora in Brossard, Quebec talk to us about physical self-care (especially since we can be stuck in the edit suite!).
Drawing on their knowledge about Chinese medicine, acupuncture, tension relief, Chinese Facial Gua Sha, and ergonomic equipment, this East-meets-West session will include an interactive Q&A component towards the end (available in English and French). Handouts will be provided with the tips and exercises that will be shared at the event.
