Historical Mystic CT

Mystic CT is a village comprised of two towns, Groton and Stonington, that share the same zip code but is separated by a drawbridge, known as the Mystic River Bascule Bridge, along the Mystic River. The first settlers settled here in 1654. Although the Stonington side was originally called “Southerton” which was named by the Peqout Indians and translated to the town east of the river. In 1665 General Session voted to change the name “Southerton” to Mistick which is known as Olde Mystick today.

The War of 1812 was had on these lands. Afterwards the area continued to grow prompting the installation of the first bridge in 1819. The drawbridge was built in 1835. In 1890 the village of Mystic became known as Old Mystic.  At this time, without actually merging, they gave up their independent names and became known as Mystic.

These changes were at by the requests of the US Post Office system, which has ever since considered the villages on the two sides of the river, belonging to two different townships, as a single entity for Post Office purposes with the ZIP code 06355. For more information about the village of Mystic CT and its history, visit the Mystic River Historical Society.

Our colors in Southeast CT are already changing. I think we’re going to see an early peak this year.

One of the things we can still do in 2020 is take scenic drives to see the fall foliage. One of the prettiest views in Mystic is looking across the river during the evening when the light is soft and the water is still. The houses sit nestled amongst the colorful trees for a fantastic view.

Your heart channel ends at your pinky and your pericardium channel ends at your middle finger. In school I always found myself using my middle finger to find points instead of the index finger. Some teachers corrected me while others encouraged it. ⁣

In practice, I still use these fingers instinctively to pick up on all the subtle energetic messages the body gives off.⁣

Any other acus out there finding points in different ways 🤏🏾💁🏽‍♀️? #acupuncture #tcm #acupuncturists

“I said on the equality side of it, that it is essential to a woman's equality with man that she be the decision-maker, that her choice be controlling” -Ruth Bader Ginsburg ✨🥊🧑🏻‍⚖️

We are still reeling from the loss of our favorite Supreme and National Treasure, RBG. The woman who spent her life on a quest for gender equality is painfully missed already. According to Jewish tradition, a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah is tzaddik, a person of great righteousness. This is clearly the case with Justice Ginsburg. Please honor her by voting in November. (Check your voter status and see if your state allows for early voting.)
