At Soul Focus, we are very proud to offer Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Our clients appreciate the peace and serenity that come with getting regular treatments so much that it has become one of our most popular services. With its rich 5,000-year-old healing tradition, this deep rooted wisdom is great for helping us make our yearly transition from winter to spring.
Spring is marked by the color green and liver energy and activity. Winter brings about condensation and storage, which in the body, translates into much needed accumulation to stave off the cold. To rid ourselves of this, the liver energy becomes active in the spring to detoxify the body. To play our part, first we have to be aware this is happening, and second, we need to aid the process the best we can.
ANCIENT WISDOM APPLIED TO MODERN LIFE
It has become a common adage to get summer ready. Many people make a move to lose weight and get in shape during this time and rightfully so. Our goal here at Soul Focus, is to help you get there with as little hassle as possible. What can we do to help get you summer ready?
NOURISH YOUR INNER GREEN
The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, often referred to as the Bible of Chinese Medicine, strongly emphasizes different needling according to the seasons. The sages of old, observed certain conditions happening cyclically and the cycles of the season were one of the primary reasons why people got ill during the change of seasons. In the case of spring, if one is not cautious and overloads the liver during its most vital time of the year, you may fall ill in the summer. Your illness can carry over into the fall and may lead to a horrendous winter full of flu and bronchitis. So essentially, the seeds we plant in the spring are not only harvested in the fall, they get us to through to next spring!
