Streams, Sprouts & Dreams: Spring Health and Wellness

The ice starts to melt, seeds to sprout and intentions begin to form. Springtime is about renewal, movement and tapping into the fresh, upward rising energy of the Wood Element.

The energy of this season is associated with the liver and gallbladder and is extremely potent.  When in balance it can gift us with positive growth, emotional balance and equanimity, new ideas, dreaming, vision, a vivid imagination, ability to implement plans for the future and find ones true path. With all of this upward moving energy at play around us though it's not uncommon to experience an increase in the unhealthy expression of the Wood element and a liver out of balance from excesses accumulated during the sluggish winter months with symptoms like headaches, migraines, irritability, emotional outbursts, menstrual difficulty, mood swings, digestive upsets and more pronounced tension in the neck and shoulders and of course seasonal allergies.  If you need help finding balance this season please don't hesitate to be in touch and inquire about how acupuncture and the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine may be able to benefit your health and wellness both physical and emotionally. Happy Spring! xo Julie
