We've made it to summer! Summer Solstice, with the most hours of daylight for the year, is June 21st. And Chicagoland is FINALLY getting sunshine and warmth after an especially long, chilly, and rainy Spring.

We hope you are getting outside and enjoying all the benefits of nature. 

Be sure to check out this month's blog - Eating for the Seasons: Summer

Hopefully you have already seen our announcement of CCHW's impending move to Schaumburg full-time. Which means this month also begins Teri's final days of seeing clients in the South Loop. See below for Saturday hours in Schaumburg starting in August.

We will be doing our best to manage this transition as smoothly as possible. Toward that end, we may also be sending out a few more newsletters than usual. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out. 

And, if you have been eyeing a particular salt lamp, book, or essential oil - EVERYTHING is now on sale up through July 13. Be sure to stop by while supplies last.

Best Wishes & Good Health,
Teri Calandra, L.Ac. Dipl.Acu, MSTOM, LMT, RMT
