Saving the best til last. 🇰🇭 The supreme temple of the world! Photos cannot come close to capturing the beauty and impact of this temple. It was mesmerizing. We walked through the grounds and temple in the late afternoon and returned the following day - our final day of holidays - for the sunrise. 💗 at Angkor Wat Temple

Dinner and a show with @pharecambodiancircus Such a great performance, we loved it and encourage everyone to see a performance if you are in Siem Reap. Phare is a great initiative to support (see more info below about Phare) We got A reserve tickets which included a refillable steel water bottle in conjunction with @refillnotlandfillasia. Plastic water bottles are a huge problem here in Cambodia, like many parts of the world. Any reduction of plastic is worthwhile, there are refill locations in many locations around Siem Reap. One location is @sistersreycafe which incidentally has the best coffee we have had since leaving Australia. Sister Srey is another worthy business to support. With a percentage of profits going to landmine clearance and supportinh young Khmer students who struggle to keep a balance between study and supporting their family. Each staff member is trained in hospitality, English language skills, personal development, health & hygiene and banking. • ‘Phare, The Cambodian Circus is one of Cambodia’s most innovative social enterprise models. Profits generated through tickets, refreshment and merchandise sales support the free education, professional arts training and social support programs of Phare Ponleu Selpak in Battambang • More than just a circus, Phare shows are unlike any in the world: dance, theater, original live music and breathtaking circus arts are used to tell uniquely Cambodian stories from recent history, folklore and modern society. The peformance we saw was White Gold. #siemreap #cambodia #pharecircus #pharecambodiancircus #sistersrey #refillnotlandfill #refusereuserecycle #socialenterprise at ផ្សារចាស់ សៀមរាប

• CAMBODIA • Cambodian food is delicious and full of herbs, spices and flavor. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood at the markets. A few of my favorites were the national dish -fish amok and also the morning glory (also all around Vietnam) The sticky rice with adzuki beans cooked in bamboo over coals also deserves a mention. 👌🏻 • • • #holidays #cambodia #siemreap #cambodianfood #siemreapmarket #acupuncturist #herbalist at ព្រះអង្គចេកព្រះអង្គចម

• VIETNAM • 🏮 HOI AN 🏮A great place to explore for a few days. Ancient town is just stunning ✨ We stayed in a lovely peaceful villa here with an amazing collection of bonsais. There are lots of little museums through ancient town. I visited the museum of traditional medicine, displaying artifacts used to cut and boil raw herbal medicines. It also tells the story of the history of traditional medicine here. #holidays #vietnam #hoian #acupuncturist #herbalist #traditionalmedicine #chinesemedicine at Hội An

• SINGAPORE • A mix of new and shiny and precious and historic. Great architecture, design and super neat and clean. For a city, it doesn’t feel rushed, although looking around at times it feels like you could be in Melbourne or London. There is so much to do here but bring your $$$. #singapore #holidays #singaporeriver #design at Singapore

Sometimes / Mostly the pathway to harmony is through chaos. Life is a learnt experience, sometimes these lessons are hard. Becoming present in the moment and letting go of attachments to the way things ‘should’ be is hard but also healing. • I know Chinese medicine and acupuncture immensely help my clients navigate these unknown paths, in some of the most harrowing moments of their lives. 💗 • Today I ‘should’ be on my way to Sri Lanka via Singapore. A trip I dreamt of for many years and had planned with my family for over a year. Covering a lot of ground from Colombo to Sigiraya to Kandy to Ella to Arugam Bay to Udawalawe to Unawatuna to Negombo. Taking in the tea and spice plantations, nature and national parks, beaches, surfing, history, religions, culture and food. I’ve cancelled this because of the violence there recently. I’m so sad for the people of Sri Lanka. So so sad 😭. I hope we can visit there another time. For now though we have altered our plans and are bound instead for relaxation and adventure in Singapore, Vietnam and Cambodia with a very rough itinerary. Sad and exciting all at the same time. All tips and recommendations are welcome. ✌🏻 #peaceforsrilanka #chinesemedicine #acupuncture #acupuncturist #herbalist #philosophy #healing #chaos #peace #vietnam #singapore #cambodia at Melbourne International Airport

Rest; I like to say that ‘doing nothing is doing something’ because it really is so important to have time and space just to be. • Any spare time I’ve had in the last week has been swallowed up by phone-calls and emails - yuk - so I’m looking forward to a rest, and from that more balance. I’m officially on holidays and out of clinic until the 20th of May, if needed you can reach me by text during this time. #doing #having #rest #restless #leunig via @leunigstudio @leunigdaily #balance #acupuncturist #herbalist #philosophy #holidays

Wholefoods for April. Love the bright jewels of pomegranates at this time of year. Great to top off salads and vegie dishes and full of antioxidants and phytonutrients. • #foodasmedicine #nutrients #pomegranate #aprilproduce #seasonalfood #antioxidants #autumn #farmersmarket #food #instafood #seasonalfood #rawfood #wholefoods #buylocal #slowfood #vitamins #minerals #eatlocal #diet #nutrition #eatfresh #eatseasonal #eatrealfood #healthyfood #cleaneating #acupuncturist #herbalist #naturalmedicine #torquay #surfcoast at Torquay, Victoria

I spent my Sunday away from the beachside in Eltham at a Japanese moxa workshop along with some other lovely practitioners. Moxa is the smoky herb used during treatments, either alongside acupuncture or on it’s own. There are lots different moxa types and lots of different grades too. My patients love moxa, It’s great for pain, warmth and moving stuck Qi. . • • #moxa #moxapunk #chinesemedicine #traditionalchinesemedicine #naturalmedicine #moxibustion #moxabustion #moxatherapy #acupuncturelife #acupuncture #wellness #healing #pain #cold #qi
