Queen Sasha Ormiston


Episode 06

Today in the Queendom we’re diving in with Sasha Ormiston - my friend, colleague, and acupuncturist.


Tune in, Rise up, and Enjoy the flow!

Listen to the episode here:





“[Acupuncture]’s a medicine that you don’t have to come in with ailments to see incredible shifts. We work to move things to an even better state of wellness and being, and give you the tools that you need to really grow. Little quotes and little tidbits that you can take, and you’re going through your day and something comes up that normally would have been really reactive to you, or negative to you, and all of a sudden you have this one little tool that’s like, ‘Ok let’s look at this. Let’s make a reasonable decision about why this is coming up, and kind of go from there.’ You have this space to grow as a person hugely, compared to just living in this negative-unwell to balanced baseline.“
