Welcome to 2018

Welcome to 2018
The Year of Life, Earth and the Dog!

Did you know that the number 18 is a spiritual number in Judaism? The word "Chai' translated from Hebrew to English means "Life." Within the Jewish faith, "Chai" possesses both numerical and symbolic meaning. The Hebrew word consists of two (2) letters in the alphabet: Chet (ח) and Yud (י). Together these letters form "Chai" – "LIFE"! 

And according to the Chinese Zodiac, 2018 is the year of the Dog! Chinese New Year in 2018 is on Friday, the 16th of February and ends on February 4, 2019. In Chinese astrology each zodiac year (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) is not just associated with an animal sign, but also with one of the five elements: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earh. 2018 is the element of Earth – so 2018 is an Earth Dog Year.

Whatever your beliefs are, Mend Family Acupuncture and Healthcare wishes you JOY, HEALTH, and PROSPERITY in this year of the Brown Earth Dog! Be kind to yourself and trust that the world is filled with love.

Welcome to 2018, Mend Family Acupuncture in Los Angeles, CA

Mend has many tools to combat this tough flu season! Acupuncture, fire cupping, moxa, and patented herbal formulas have been used for thousands of years to ease cold and flu symptoms and help you get through the rough Winter. Give us a call!
