Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) specifically acupressure massage therapy has done wonders for me and my family. Aside from its stress-busting and pain-relieving action, it can help shed some inches off the waist–serious, some WOW members can attest to this ! Dr WU has been one of our best discoveries in Wuhan and perhaps for a few other families as well. He does home service for such an affordable price that no SPA can beat. Acupuncture and cupping therapy are other alternatives. Call him at 13886081113 . WOW member Flora has kindly offered to help with translation if necessary- email her email@example.com. Enjoy the massage!
This year the Dragon Boat Festival falls on June 12 and the holiday will be from June 10-12. This festival dates back to over 2,000 years ago and commemorates the patriotic poet Qu Yuan (340-278 BC). The main event of the festivities is the Dragon Boat Race. These boats are long and thin with dragon heads on the bow of the ships. The boat races are said to represent the search for Qu’s body, with racing boats in a forward rowing motion, to the rhythm of beating drums. Other activities include eating Zongzi which is pyramid-shaped glutinous rice wrapped in reed or bamboo leaves. Kai, one of our WOW ladies, is the drummer (in the picture) for the CECP team and competing in 800m and the 2000m races. Kai would love WOW to come and cheer her along, I will update with times of the races as soon as I know.
