The Spring season is connected to the element Wood and the Liver and Gallbladder organ systems in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the Spring trees and plants are budding and growing.
Similarly the element Wood represents the energy of growth, movement and flexibility. And, not surprising, the color green is associated with both the Wood element and with spring.
According to the philosophy of Chinese medicine, the Liver is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body.
When this energy is blocked, a person can feel anger, resentment, frustration or stress—and become not very flexible!
Spring is the perfect time for cleansing and getting Qi moving. Just as people are naturally drawn to “spring cleaning” to get rid of unnecessary stuff and junk around us in our homes and offices, cleansing our bodies helps move out junk, or unwanted toxins, internally, invigorating our spirit as well.
Try some Acupuncture – Even if you don’t receive Acupuncture treatments regularly, getting a “tune up” at the beginning of spring is a great way to keep yourself healthy, free of unwanted stress and make the transition between seasons without getting sick.
