Has Chinese Medicine changed your life? This holiday season, take the opportunity to share this beautiful practice with those you love. Here's our gift guide to choosing the perfect Chinese Medicine inspired gift for everyone on your list!
For the Athlete
Chinese herbs in your coffee? Yes, please! Released earlier this summer but based on 1000 years of history, our new Joint Vitality formula is ideal for people in search of knee and lower back support. Flavored with cinnamon, cocoa, and a dash of vanilla, and further enhanced with collagen and coconut oil, this formula pairs perfectly with coffee. We recommend giving a canister of this formula with a gift card to your favorite local coffee store.
For the Person Who Needs Some R&R:
Do you ever feel more rested, relaxed, and cared for than when you leave an acupuncture appointment? Many acupuncturists offer gift cards. Support your favorite acupuncturist and share this incredible experience with someone you love. Need help finding an acupuncturist for an out-of-town recipient? Let us know and we'll help connect you with someone amazing.
For the New Mom
Pregnancy and birth can be depleting to the body. For new moms, we love the book The First Forty Days by Heng Ou, which details the "confinement" period that many new moms in China have after the birth of the baby, where women (and their support system!) prioritize time for healing and bonding with the new baby. If your new mama friend is in LA, Heng also offers delivery of meals specifically for mothers through MotherBees. Our PostPartum Bundle is also a great tool to help new moms recover after childbirth.
For the Overworked and Under-slept
Anyone with high stress levels can benefit from Eastern medicine. Acupuncture, QiGong, Tai Chi, and herbs will all help reduce stress. Mental Tranquility, based on the traditional Gui Pi Tang, has been used for centuries to promote better, more restorative sleep, and to reduce stress and improve mental clarity. You can read more about how this formula has changed DAO Founder John G. McGarvey's life here. This formula is a must for anyone in a high pressure environment.
For the Beauty Lover:
The skin is our largest organ, and it deserves to be treated as holistically as the food we eat. 5YINA is a skincare company rooted in Chinese medicine, with products to promote your skin's vitality and resilience against pollution, environmental stress, and seasonal changes. We dress and eat according to the seasons, and 5YINA rituals allow your favorite beauty lover to care for her skin according to changing seasons as well.
