It’s SPRING equinox today! 🌿🎋
The foundations of traditional Chinese medicine are based on observing nature - hence the 5 element theory (earth, wood, metal, fire, water.)
Spring is associated with the “Wood” element. Wood lengthens in the spring, sprouts new branches, is flexible and bends in the wind yet is strong enough to withstand windstorms. It’s responsible for new growth, and governs the direction of that growth.
The five elements interact with each other in a generating cyclical pattern. Wood naturally turns into (generates) the Fire element (think about the fuel for your cozy campfires.)
The Liver organ system is associated with the wood element. It’s responsible for the smooth/appropriate direction of energy flow in your body. It governs your sinews/connective tissue which act like flexible branches but are strong enough to hold your muscles to your bones. Its energy turns to pathogenic wind (rash, flares of anger, tremors, occipital headaches) when it’s moving inappropriately. Its favourite colour is green, its favourite flavour is sour and its time of day is 1am-3am!
Soothe your liver by staying out of the wind, letting out anger and resentment, drinking citrus in your water, stretch/move, and sleep during liver time (1am-3am.)
And don’t forget to book in for acupuncture with your friendly neighborhood acupuncturists, Olivia and Lindsay!

Women owned, women operated. We’re highlighting the bad @$$ women, trans and non-binary individuals in our lives today.
Here’s to us! Every time you’re underpaid, underestimated, shrugged off, overlooked or mistreated based on your gender or non-gender, it makes us work harder for you.
It makes us dig our heels in harder, stand taller, speak louder and it gives us the drive to operate our business the way we do - with love for everybody.
We operate this business with a strong presence in the community fully showcasing our definition of what it means to be us - strong, assertive, smart, kind, and of course, loving. Tag a strong woman, trans woman, or non-binary person in your life who inspires you. And tell us why!

We had the pleasure of starting our day off on the right foot with and a room full of incredible local health and wellness folks. This week $25 from every pair sold of these cute Eyelet sneaks will be donated to
Last year, Poppy Barley launched their Future Fund to help fill “The Girl Gap”. For girls and non-binary non-binary youth ages 10-14, there is a perfect storm of societal and biological trends that result in poor mental health and a lack of confidence. One of the pillars they’ve identified to help build the confidence that our youth need to excel is to get involved in sport!
Did you know: girls and woman who play sports have higher levels of self esteem, and an astounding 94% of female leaders have an athletic background.

Fun fact: Foxglove founders Jillian + Lindsay played sports until the age of 14 and continue to pursue an active life.
We love everything about Poppy Barley from their team, their INCREDIBLE shoes, and their continued contributions to the community. We are stoked to be sporting their kicks as we treat our clients at Foxglove.canada

Happy birthday Kimiko!!
If you know Foxglove, you know Kimiko. She’s the glue that holds the walls and roof up!
She took a huge leap of faith with us and career changed into clinic coordinator when we opened and we are so happy we get to spend everyday with this beautiful soul.
Wish her the best day ever as she celebrates another year of life and with Foxy!!

🪻Foxglove🪻
We often get asked where our name comes from. Aside from being a beautiful flower, Foxglove is Traditional Chinese Medicine as well!
The processed root of the Foxglove flower is a very strong yin tonic in TCM and is one of the major herbs Lindsay uses in her fertility formulas. Yin is dark, quiet, cool and calming - exactly how we wanted our clinic to feel when you walk through the door for your treatment.
What does Foxglove do medicinally? Nourishes your blood (quality and quantity), nourishes your body fluids which helps with dryness anywhere in the body, tonifies your “essence” which is the TCM way to say - it improves sperm/egg quality - hence why it’s used often for fertility.
We loved that there was “love” in the name. And if we’re being honest, we also loved that there was “fox” in the name as well - we call ourselves (and our clients) Foxglove foxes.
It just seemed to fit how we like to practice and how we live.
Tell us you love it as much as we do! 🖤🖤🖤

🥀 Valentine’s Day is over 🥀
You might not know it but your flower arrangement is a gift that keeps on giving! Even after they lose their brilliance, many flowers are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
🌹 Rose (Mei Gui Hua) - a strong blood mover, this innocent Vday staple is a heavy hitter for period pain. We like the pink ones the most.
🌺Red Saffron (Hong Hua) - even stronger than rose, red saffron is used very commonly in menstrual disorders, moving blood stagnation and promoting bleeding. Her soulmate/eternal Valentine is apricot pit (Tao Ren) 🍑- because after all, we’re stronger together - I think that’s what was on our Vday card this year - they join forces for a synergistic effect tackling menstrual disorders like little boss babes.
🌼 Chrysanthemum (Ju Hua) - this Vday buddy helps clear summer colds and flus, helping with fever and heat symptoms. It also helps to improve/brighten your vision!
🌻 Dandelion (Pu Gong Ying) - Don’t laugh, we know this isn’t a common bouquet flower, but if you’re lucky enough to have a teeny Foxglove buddy pick you sidewalk dandelions on his way by the clinic, this tiny fist of flowers packs the biggest punch for the heart - and it so happens for the rest of the body too! Dandelion helps to reduce toxicity, especially for the liver! So if you had too much Valentine’s Day wine, this flower will help!
🪻Last, but certainly not least, FOXGLOVE (Shu Di Huang)! That’s right, our clinic is named after a flower. And it happens to be Traditional Chinese Medicine (coincidence? 😉) There are so many reasons we love this flower, so stay tuned tomorrow to learn about all the reasons it’s on our walls, in our hearts and tucked into our bouquet this Vday!

There is nothing we love more than watching our foxy family grow. What a beautiful opportunity we have to be able to treat multi generations through the array of wellness needs at every stage of life.
Family, of course, comes in many different forms. The ones you’re born into, the ones you choose to add, friends who become family, and those who come in for a moment and leave marks on your heart forever.
We wish you an incredible long weekend nurturing the meaningful relationships in your life, holding your loved ones close, and giving yourself an extra squeeze from your fam at Foxglove!
We will be open on Saturday, but closed on Monday to enjoy some time with ours too!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our people!
Why do we love Vday so much? Because we love LOVE! It’s in our name, it’s on our walls, it’s in our touch, it’s for our team, and especially - it’s for YOU.
Let’s normalize saying I love you - whether it’s to a client (hint hint), a friend, a partner, a family member, a pet, to a stranger, to someone new, to yourself - if there is one thing we are certain about in this world, it’s that we need more love; for everybody.
Love is our ethos, our passion, our very JOBS. It’s how we feel fulfilled by our work. Caring for people is what we do every single day. So Valentine’s Day is everyday for us. We’re just going to use today as an excuse to remind you - we LOVE you everyday!

We’re almost midway through February and are seeing some of the motivation for those new year goals dwindling. It’s a tough time of year, (despite our fake spring last week), still being in darker days and cooler temps…and if you have some pain or unresolved injury, it can be even more challenging to surge forward.
Our physiotherapist Keeley, is all about keeping you in motion and getting you to live the life you want in your body. Giving yourself the right tools, the right support, and starting off at YOUR beginning is key.
Come talk to Keeley about your goals so she can help guide you to moving in your body the way that is best for you.
HOT TIP: Keeley is a huge proponent of Nordic poles for getting active while reducing pain (especially in the hips). Chat with her about the benefits of Nordic Walking! And while you are at it join Mitch for an outdoor forest bathing walk to maximize your mental and physical health!

Self care is part of love month at Foxglove Wellness. Love yourself with cosmetic acupuncture! Grab a pal, a partner or pop in solo.
Lindsay and Olivia both offer cosmetic acupuncture appointments. They include:
✨ A wellness check/body acupuncture treatment focused on how you’re feeling with some powerhouse additional points to help your skin from the inside out.
✨ Facial needling to lift, tone, release tension and increase collagen production
✨ A spritz of our “Neroli + Rose” rose gold toner and slather of Cellular Renewal Facial Serum from our friends
✨ Facial Cupping to improve blood flow to the skin and lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness
✨ Facial GuaSha to reduce inflammation/redness and reduce tension.
You’ll feel like jello after this appointment and you’ll leave with a summer dewy look in the middle of winter.
Lindsay and Olivia can even show you how to cup/guasha your own face! We have little trinkets in our shop to help you look your best.

❤️🤍LOVE MONTH IS HERE🤍❤️
To start off our FAV month (just kidding, we don’t play favourites,) let’s start by loving on our littles - especially on a day like today.
There is no stronger love than watching a tiny human grow into their authentic, happy self - whoever that may be.
It is our responsibility to care for them, listen to them, understand how they are feeling, understand that their experience is not and cannot be the same as our experience, give them support, find them help when they need it, encourage them, applaud their efforts and passion, and most importantly, give them unconditional love.
Regardless of your age, at Foxglove, we will:
🖤 Call you by your preferred name
🤍 Call you by your chosen pronouns
❤️ Care for your body/heart/mind without judgement
🖤 Be a sounding board if you need to talk
🤍 Find help if you need more support
❤️ Love you for who you are

Edmonton Winter - what words come to mind when we think about winter in our city?
Really cold, really snowy (at least most years), northern, dark AF, bad roads maybe?
We might be all of these things, but looking at these things through the right lens can make Edmonton very special. Forest Bathing can help bring joy and appreciation to these Edmonton winters we love to hate.
Cold? - well bundle in your warmest clothes! Now that the polar vortex is over, we have beautiful warm-ish sunny days during our lighter hours!
Snowy? - you bet we have snow and it’s gorgeous. Northern Alberta turns into a winter wonderland and in Edmonton we still get to have the amenities that allow us to escape it when we want to!
Dark? Yeah it gets dark really early all winter - what a great opportunity to look up and see the stars. And although it gets dark early, Edmonton has the most sunlight hours at the coldest temperatures, which makes us a great city to harvest solar energy - why don’t you take a crisp moment outside in our sunny afternoons to recharge your own battery and get some vitamin D outside!
Bad roads - ummmm…. We’re gonna skip this one, but get yourself some winter tires, try the new LRT, or walk instead of driving! You won’t regret the extra steps.
We love love at Foxy - and we love our city just as much as we love the people inside of it! Come and connect with us with a forest bathing session and immerse yourself in this beautiful season we’re so lucky to have ❄️

At Foxglove, we believe that wellness is more than just what we eat and how much we move (though, that is a part of it).
Wellness is based on a combination of our 𝐩𝐡𝐲𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 (nutrients/rest/movement/water/oxygen), 𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 (safety/support/connection/interdependence), and 𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥 needs (purpose/play/imagination/creativity). [Maslows hierarchy of needs/authentic needs by .holistic.psychologist ]
That’s why at Foxglove, we aim to encompass all of the foundations of wellness in our practice.
We want everyone who comes in to Foxy to feel safe, supported, and a part of our little community. We understand that life is, at times, chaos. We love to hear about the highs and lows, talk about your reality TV addictions or other vices, laugh, cry, or just be silent with you.
We want to help you do what you love by making you FEEL your best during your treatment and like to think we are flexible to adjust to your needs in the moment! Whether it’s engaging with us through our community events, listening to the constant playful banter of Lindsay and Jillian at the front, or opening up to us behind a closed door as a sounding board/support system, we’re here for you.
And of course, let our many many many plants give you a little oxygen boost, and have our candles calm your body and mind while you relax on our treatment tables.

We’re back at it Foxies! We hope you all had an incredible holiday season and are wishing you happiness, love, and a wellness filled 2024!
The start of a new year is always a great opportunity to reflect on the past year; the wins, the joys, the losses. To move forward with those lessons and project intentions for the coming year.
Of course, here at Foxglove we want you to make wellness and self care a priority because we know that taking care of YOU can set you up for success in all the other areas of your life. This is where you get to be “selfish”!
So tell us, what are your wellness goals for 2024?!

Happy Winter Solstice! ❄️✨
Today is a special day, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory. TCM is all about balance ⚖️ The foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine are based on observing nature.
Everything has yin and everything has yang. Yin and yang interact with one another creating beautiful oscillating patterns in nature like the ebb and flow of a wave, the waxing and waning of the moon, a deep breath in and out, and - you guessed it - the circulation of the seasons.
Today is the most wintery day of the year (despite no snow.) Today is the most Yin day of the year as well - and from Yin, Yang is born!
Despite having more winter to come, our days will start to lengthen. Celebrate the Solstice with and spark a Yule log (or your signature Yin candle from Foxy) - and let’s celebrate the deep strength of Yin energy and the birth of Yang energy today!
May your days be merry and bright(er), YEG! ☀️

12/13/2023

Do you ever get your face and scalp worked on during a treatment? IYKYK! Are we right?????
Often the face and scalp can get skipped over, but your face and scalp muscles get tight too!
We use our face muscles ALL the time with the facial expressions we make through out the day. Do you ever catch yourself furrowing your brow when you are really concentrating? Or clenching your jaw when you are stressed? Our mind/body connection is powerful.
The muscles of the scalp and face are interconnected so massaging these areas can relieve tension headaches, jaw pain, increase circulation and relax tight muscles (also relaxing expression lines), and it calms the nervous system truly leaving you blissed out head to toe.
You can always ask your massage therapist for some extra face and scalp love or book a 90 minute to get a thorough full body serene experience.

The snow is finally here!
It sure looks pretty, but we all know it comes with some achey, breaky shovelling, some “shoulder for ear muff” tension, and hopefully, some good ol’ Canadian extreme tobogganing with the kids… (ie. sore muscles).
POV: Bring on the ‘Arnica Ice’!
This muscle rub is infused with naturally anti-inflammatory wild arnica flowers, so you can find relief without the use of petroleum products or artificial ingredients AND this balm contains menthol for a long lasting cooling sensation.
Our first batch sold out fast! But we have a new shipment coming in soon!
Pre purchase yours online *link in bio* and we will alert you when it’s ready for pick up!
In the meantime, if you’re feeling sore, you know what to do! Book in with your fav Foxglove practitioner and let us take care of you.
