Part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to have a holistic outlook when it comes to our bodies and brains. That’s why we made the choice to partner with a company called WTHN. Aside from being our neighbor in the Flatiron NYC area, WTHN is an acupuncture, cupping, and herbal treatment studio rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. Their approach to the mind-body connection goes beyond the physical and reaches deep within.

During that time, I had to initiate a deep trust in my personal best practices in order to Keep Moving.
