Happy Spring Equinox!
The days are becoming longer, and life is beginning to blossom.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Spring is associated with the element Wood, and the Liver & Gallbladder organs.
As we move from the cold, contracted wintertime energy into the expansive lively summertime, you may notice changes in your body and mind too. To help you adapt to the change, it is recommended to get acupuncture with the transition of each season to maintain optimal health and vitality.
Other tips you can apply to help you embrace the change are eating more fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. This will help your liver detox and refresh from the winter. What flower do you often see in springtime? Usually dandelions! Drinking dandelion tea or adding leaves to your salad will also help.
The Liver and Gallbladder are in charge of the sinews and tendons in your body, so it is important to become more active with exercise, yoga and other physical activity.
In TCM, a common pattern of imbalance is Liver Qi Stagnation. This can cause a variety of problems and diseases. So, come get acupuncture, and get your Qi flowing!
