‘Chinese Medicine views the body as a garden. As gardens cycle with the seasons, our bodies do as well. Spring is the time of growth and renewal. It’s a perfect time to cleanse and rejuvenate health and wellness.’
Spring Is In The Air!
Spring is a favorite season of mine! During springtime the air has a certain vibrance, clarity, and newness. When we think of spring, we think of flowers blooming again, nature regrowth, and clear expansive skies. This also applies to Chinese Medicine philosophy. Springtime represents outward moving energy, rebirth, cleansing, and a time of restoration.
The organ system that is predominant during the spring is the liver. The liver is responsible for the smooth flow and movement of qi or energy in the body. When the liver energy is flowing smoothly, physical and emotional energy flow smoothly as well.
Move Your Qi (Energy) By Moving Your Body!
It can be something as simple as taking the dog for a walk, going for a bike ride, yoga, gardening, or any activity that you love. Stretching can awaken the expansive energy within your body!

Summer is the season filled with abundant, creative, outward energy. It's the most Yang time of year.
According to Chinese Medicine and Taoist philosophy, the element of summer is fire, the color is red, the sound is laughter, and the emotion is joy. The organs associated with the season are the heart, small intestine, pericardium (heart protector), and the san jiao (in energetic terms represents the upper, middle, and lower parts of the body: breathing, digesting, and eliminating). It is said that the ‘heart houses the mind or ‘shen’ which is also known as the spirit.’
It is important for the organs to remain in balance for health and well being. When the fire element is in balance, one may feel relaxed and energized. If there is an imbalance one may experience depression, mania, heartburn, agitation, blood pressure issues, joint pain, or insomnia.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help with any imbalance or unease that you are experiencing, support your immune system, and give you energy. Other suggestions to remain in harmony with the summer season:
May all beings be free from suffering.
May all brings be peaceful, safe, & happy.
May all beings awaken to the light of their true nature.
May all beings be free.
