I want to end the year with a big thank you to all our loyal patients, friends, radio listeners, followers and friends for a wonderfully productive year. Our mission is to help bring as many people as possible to our medical system where we can improve lives and health naturally. With your support, we have been able to continue our mission and help thousands of people this year.
In 2018, we added 2 new Resident Acupuncturists, Dr. Sian (5 yrs. in private practice) and Dr. Chris B. (10 yrs. in private practice). Both of them come to SOPHIA with their own unique experiences from around the globe. Both are licensed Acupuncturists as well as licensed in Massage and Tui Na. They will be delivering acupuncture very soon, once I feel they are thoroughly trained in our system. We will be posting their bio’s so look forward to reading about their interesting backgrounds in Chinese Medicine.
We also launched our “Acupuncture Happy Hour”. This is a walk-in group session acupuncture intro for only $10.00 per treatment, (free to Veterans), and all money is donated to local charities. It’s on Tuesday nights from 5-7PM. I feel this is a great way to give back to our community, introduce acupuncture to more people, reduce pain and create peace and relaxation. We will continue this throughout 2019.
We have lectures set up on various topics such as Lyme Disease, Eating for the Seasons, Treating Stress and more. These will be held both in our office and through the Continuing Education Program for Brookfield, CT. Keep an eye out for these events by visiting our events page.
I will enter into my 4th year on the air through my show “The Natural Medicine Connection” on 800AM/94.1FM WLAD Radio. The plan is to continue to bring fresh content, more guests and also appearances by my skilled staff and professional colleagues. Tune in at 10 AM every Saturday.
2019 will be the year of the Earth Pig. The Pig is a representation of diligence, kindness, and generosity. According to Chinese Astrology, 2019 is a great year to make money, and a good year to invest! 2019 is going to be full of joy, a year of friendship and love; an auspicious year because the Pig attracts success in all the spheres of life.
Now even if you don’t follow the Chinese zodiac, it’s interesting to focus on the virtues of hard work, kindness, and generosity. So this will be our theme throughout 2019. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
All the best,
Dr. Ken Hoffman, DACM, L.Ac.
Medical Director, SOPHIA Natural Health Center
