Ipswich: Year of the rabbit!

IPSWICH: It promises to be a good year for dogs... but mice could be in for a turbulent time.

That’s the verdict of Chinese alternative health expert Yan Dong Wang – or Sabrina, as she is known to customers at her St Matthew’s Street store.

The owner of China Health was among millions of people this week to usher in the Chinese year of the rabbit.

And, depending on the year in which you were born, it promises to be an eventful time.

As well as providing alternative treatments and medicines to people seeking remedies for anything from stress to arthritis, Sabrina is well practised at giving out astrological advice.

She said: “It’s very rewarding to see people’s condition improve.

“Some find acupuncture very effective for pain relief, others ask for help with depression or emotional problems.

“Western medicine works for many people, but some find it difficult to stop using it.

“That’s not the case with traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture.”

According to Sabrina, this year holds success and happiness for those born during the year of the sheep, so you could be in luck if you’re due to turn 32 or 43 in the next 12 months.

Unfortunately for rabbits, cockerels, dragons and mice, the outlook is not so rosy – but Sabrina encourages them not to abandon hope.

“It’s not so good to be a rabbit in the year of the rabbit but, like Western horoscopes, it can often be just as helpful to know something bad about your future so you can change it, ” she said.

China Health stocks dozens of treatments for a variety of afflictions and offers acupuncture, Chinese massage and herbal medicine to anyone who wants an alternative to conventional remedies.
