Macrobiotics (meaning 'big life') is based on the ancient theories of Yin and Yang. It provides a set of principles in accordance with nature that enable the person to live to their fullest day by day and year by year. Macrobiotic principles can be used to create different diet and lifestyle guidelines for each individual, which accomodates the changes throughout life.
Lumi was introduced to Macrobiotics and food energetics as part of the Shiatsu training at the Devon School of Shiatsu. Further studies were undertaken at the International Macrobiotic School and the Concord Institute for Integral Studies. If required, Lumi uses the principles and tools as recommendations to help empower people to be well.
