Irritability, anger, depression, mood swings – all signs that your Liver may be out of kilter. The Liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is directly related to Spring, which is why we often see these emotional imbalances at this time of year.
These symptoms are exacerbated by too much fat, chemicals, intoxicants, alcohol and denatured food in our diet, leading to stagnation and heat throughout the body. This then has a huge impact on the way the other organ systems in the body operate, leading to a myriad of health complaints e.g. IBS, vomitting, insomnia, over/under eating, migraines and PMS.
However, a healthy Liver establishes a smooth and soothing flow of energy, in both body and mind. When the Liver is harmonious, there is never stress or tension and you are able to make strong decisions… If only, hey!
Acupuncture is so powerful at smoothing the Liver and helping you overcome these physical and emotional imbalances. However, I also offer my patients simple, effective, take-home techniques to smooth their own Liver to create sustainable, positive changes in their life and their health.
