Mitchell Family Acupuncture

Mitchell Family Acupuncture


Incredibly upset. I scheduled an appointment at 38 weeks pregnant. Rearranged my morning plans to make sure I could make it and no one showed up. I have a confirmation and email appointment reminder and no one is here. No one answers the phone. My whole morning is wasted. How unprofessional!!!
As we finally start to talk about having another baby, Shaun and I were fondly remembering our sessions with Amy today. Each visit BG and AG (before Georgie and after Georgie) were such a special part of our transition. We will miss not having you as part of our birth journey this time around! Although I may email with questions!!!!

A mother loves all of her children. But when one is in need of her attention, her love, her care... she tends to that one. •

Yes. All lives matter, true. But #blacklivesmatter is a call to attention {if you had not been already paying attention for all these years and generations!} to tend to that which needs tending to. It is a call to uprise, uplift, re-callibrate what has been long distorted. •

The mother knows all children matter but she tends to the one who is in pain... and she even calls on the other children to tend to the one in pain as well. Be a mother. Be a carer. Be a responsible and rightful person. When a child is bleeding or sad or exhausted does the mother say, “I can’t help you because all my children matter and it takes my attention from the other child”, no. A mother tends to that which she is being called to do. •

Tend to the circumstance at hand that is calling your attention. This is how to be a rightful contributor to the family, the community, the world. Tend to what matters. •

Some mothers are born mothers. Some learn. If you are just catching up with what it means to tend to the world or the community, fine. Do the work you need to do to catch up and participate. Don’t apologize, don’t try to be perfect, just get on with it. If you have been at this for some time, pass the torch when you need. Tend to yourself when you are the one in need of tending to. We need you full. •

From our beloved acupuncturist @wellinthewest
The height of yang.
Summer, the season of the heart.

Use it. Use your heartbreak, your love, your energy, the anger. Use your heart and power and energy and mind to do all the things you have been thinking about. Now is the time. Use the long daylight hours and the energy you have for justice for too many black lives lost, hurt, injured, disenfranchised. Black lives matter. Black trans lives matter.

We are in the longest hours of daylight and it is showing us what we have been ignoring for so long. Light your heart in fire. Celebrate joy. Feel your anger. Ain’t no power like the power of the people of the power of the people don’t stop.

Im here. Learning. Donating. Emailing. Acting. Listening. Watching. (Coming soon a post on black mamas health. My little one is almost one year old. And it is my wish for his lifetime that black lives and black joy become honored by becoming fairly treated in our healthcare systems.) 📸 and food by @rachaelgorjestani #Repost @wellinthewest ❤️💔❤️

Why NOW?

More CoNo Herbal Syrup on its way! Taking Preorders now. But Why now?

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” that’s the saying right? In Chinese medicine this is one of greatest principles. Acupuncture points go in to help relieve your symptoms. They also are likely helping to prevent a domino effect.

Our CONO syrup was created with herbs that help the blood to rid itself of toxins, to support the lymphatic system to move. What does this mean for you? This means that when you get exposed to a new pathogen your body is not dealing with a backlog of problems.

The CONO syrup is best treated as preventative to help your body prevent a reaction to this virus or any other virus.

Lauren @wellinthewest is ready to brew! Thanks for the making, writing & perspective on this powerful medicine, Lauren.

✻ Living By Example ✻⁣

Rather than by Explanation⁣

It is true to me that the highest way to serve our own Integrity and show up in service to it is to walk our walk forward with Fearless, Faithful, Sovereign Truth, for oneself and for the greater good of our Collective Human Family. How are we living in accordance with what we say and what we share in respect to the actual steps we choose to take and decisions we choose to make, each and every day.⁣

#satchitananda #bliss

Meditation has literally been my saving force during these times. I’ve done quite a bit of it in my life through the @vipassanaorg , San Francisco Zen Center, Tassajara Mountain Zen Center, Green Gulch, @thechoprafoundation and through my Qi Gong practice but it has been A LONG time (way pre kids) since I have had a regular daily sitting practice. Thanks to the class we offered through the clinic this winter and into spring @nalandainstitute and @zemeirasinger I came back to a daily practice. Here is a pic of my morning sitting spot right now in large part thanks to my father in law, John Mitchell. With all the change and inner turmoil and unknown I have this morning practice to bring me into the present moment. To be with myself in a truly I intimate way. To be with this time and place with equanimity even if just for a few moments. To value my breath, my body, this earth, this life.
We have another class coming up. 8 weeks of Compassion Based Resiliency Training. It’s thorough, it’s deep, it’s doable and sustainable and beautiful. This time we are welcoming all people and it’s through zoom with daily recorded meditations to guide you. Zemeira Singer, MFT will be leading. Starting the Thursday after next. DM for more info and we’ll post specifics soon. Love you all! ❤️🪐

Mother’s Day.

‘For me stepping through birth into being a mother has been one of the most empowering shifts of my life. Conceiving took a little time and the waiting was hard. Pregnancy anticipated the unknown of birth. And only passing through the intensity of birth into early motherhood has allowed me to breathe. (Thanks @restore_midwifery and @10moonsmidwifery for help with the passage) I am lucky to have a very healthy, independent baby whom I trust that he had deep wisdom in his bones to learn what he is meant to in his own time. And it has become clear that for me, with him, my role is to support his wisdom and growth. To set him up to explore and flourish. (Thanks @jbelzeradams for true partnership through all of this)
My heart is with all the mamas with their kids. Whether that be birth kids, adopted kids, foster kids, in law kids, furry babies, plant babies, careers they nurture, communities they nurture. Being a mama is so big. So so big. Way bigger than me and my little guy. Way bigger than me and my mama. -
My heart breaks softly and tenderly with all those who ache to be mama in ways they are not. And for all the kids wish to be mothered in ways they have not received. -
Wishing a very tender Mother’s Day to all the mamas who have lost. Especially all the black mamas who have lost. And especially this year the mama of Ahmaud. I am so so sorry.
Being a mom is so many things. It’s Mother’s Day. May it be happy for some, tender for others and perhaps quite heavy for many more. Sending all of you love from the inners of my tender mama heart. ‘ repost from our acupuncturist @wellinthewest ♥️

Beltane tonight and tomorrow. This day marks the halfway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Historically, rituals were performed to protect the cattle, crops, and people, and to encourage growth. We could sure use some of that right now.

Shelter in place Meditations
Mondays 7:30-8:30PM beginning this coming Monday
On Zoom

Dearest community,

How are you doing during this prolonged Shelter In Place? How is your heart? How is your mind? How is your breath? How is your body?

If you would like to sit, relax and spend some time decompressing. Join me for a weekly Monday night virtual meditation as long as SIP goes on.

We will be doing guided meditations. These are intuitively created to help you connect your body to your mind and spirit. They are meant to care for you, to hold you to ground you. They are a way to be with yourself, for me to care for you in a time when I am not getting to treat you with acupuncture.

Sitting with a group, even virtually, provides a container beyond just yourself. Join us, we would love to have you!

Donation suggested $20
Lauren’s Venmo (should be Lauren Kaneko-Jones Acupuncture)

What if instead of preparing for pregnancy the moment we want to conceive we instead prepared for pregnancy our entire lives? Traditional cultures around the world have held practices like these sacred, but it's a paradigm that is uncommon in the US.
I've just started digging into this book, and I'm so thankful for their beautiful perspective on fertility. It's not a how-to book per se, but includes many suggestions on ways to help improve fertility through food, lifestyle, and mindset. It's all about embracing the journey to fertility- whether you eventually want to have children or not.
Our fertility is a sign of our health. And our hearts and our bodies are not always in alignment. And I think it’s ok for our body to be ready before our heart is.

Do you know the light that streams in through your lids when you close your eyes? I woke up a few mornings ago and before I opened my eyes this is what I saw in shapes - thousands of wildflowers in relief behind my closed eyelids. I truly feel that my insides are rewiring, rerouting, the neural pathways changing.

Everything is beautiful and I am so sad.
This is how the heart makes a duet of
wonder and grief. The light spraying
through the lace of the fern is as delicate
as the fibers of memory forming their web
around the knot in my throat. The breeze
makes the birds move from branch to branch
as this ache makes me look for those I've lost
in the next room, in the next song, in the laugh
of the next stranger. In the very center, under
it all, what we have that no one can take
away and all that we've lost face each other.
It is there that I'm adrift, feeling punctured
by a holiness that exists inside everything.
I am so sad and everything is beautiful.
