Portage Library to host program on Chinese medicine Apr. 11

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library will host its monthly program in the Natural Health and Wellness series from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11.

Corey Bacon, owner of Thunder Mountain Acupuncture, will present "The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine." In this presentation, each Element will be explored; and participants will learn about their associated seasons, emotions, internal organ network, what can happen when their movements get stuck, and how this can affect your body. Bacon will also explain how people can best assist these Elements and their movements, and he will discuss how eating certain foods and doing specific exercises will help with this process.

Bacon graduated from the Institute of Natural Therapies with training in multiple massage styles. He continued his formal education in Portland, Oregon, at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine where he completed his Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He owns Thunder Mountain Acupuncture in Houghton where he does acupuncture, shiatsu, deep tissue massage, and herbal medicine. In addition to working with patients, he also teaches Tai Ji and Qi Gong.

The Natural Health and Wellness series is held on the second Thursday of each month. All library programs are free, and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
