Spring Awakening

do what you love

If January is for making resolutions, springtime is for renewal, and new beginnings. Instead of giving something up or breaking a bad habit, its about looking at all of life’s possibilities. For most women I know, how we spend our days—whether at work, building a business, raising babies—takes up the majority of our time, energy and spirit. Not surprisingly, we all want to do what we love and thrive doing it. But it’s easy to get stuck, or feel in a rut, even when you’re doing everything right. That’s when I call in my village of modern medicine women. Last week we gathered at Spot Spa’s new Northeast location for a little Spring Awakening. In attendance: some dear friends who believe in the power of positive energy (and good company!); my psychic, Christine Schroeder, who also did readings at our New Year, New Year event; and Lisa Smythe, Spot’s resident acupuncturist and a true healer.

I can’t imagine a more uplifting, energizing place to clear out the cobwebs and get centered than this gorgeous space—complete with some seriously covetable indie beauty brands like RGB and Earth Tu Face. While Christine doled out her sage guidance and tough love, Lisa treated us to a magical new concept: community acupuncture. If you’ve never tried acupuncture before or would appreciate a less expensive alternative, this is the way to go. Each Tuesday at Spot. Lisa offers 20-minute sessions for just $25 (normally $60-90). The only difference is that you share the room with a couple other people (after a private consult, of course). Trust me: when you’re laying in a cozy treatment room under a blanket, blissed out in mediation, you won’t give the group thing another thought. Visit to book your session. As for psychic Christine, she is always available for phone, Skype or in-person readings at [email protected] or 612-910-2417. Happy spring!
