My job as an acupuncturist is to help balance your energies, so that all your systems are working at their optimum. Your responsibility is to assist this process and mindfully notice when you might have habits that don't help.
Often people come to see me saying they feel "out of balance" and this is often coming from an emotional disturbance that they can't quite move through. This is an example of how the functions of the Organs relate to emotions - the processing and digesting of life as well as nutrients through the Earth Element (Stomach and Spleen). The Sorting out what is pure and good and nourishing from what is not good for us, both emotionally and Physically - part of the Fire Element (Small Intestine).
Treatment at the Change of the Seasons can really help us move through difficulties.
I don't know about you but this on/off Spring is quite hard - I have a longing for warmth and bright light.
Spring is the time of the Wood Element (Liver and Gall Bladder) these can help us see what we need to do and make plans and take the decisions we need to. And, give us a boost in energy to move forward!
Come on Spring!!
