SPRING! Wonderful spring.
I’ve been back in the country for less that 8 weeks after my volunteering in Nepal and the winter blues were already setting in, so spring couldn’t come soon enough.
The equinox is a time for letting go of the past, those things that are holding you back and…. This is a time for growth, rising upwards with force from your roots, values and purpose that you know instinctively are at your core.
It’s a time for planting seeds of ideas and watching them bud beautifully, according to your focus and intention.
This is an incredibly special time of year, seeing life surging around us and breathing in nature; the fresh, earthy, dewy smells that fill our lungs with energy, excitement and possibility.
To celebrate, my wonderful patients this week will be given a Shot of Spring juice to move their Liver Qi, overcome the stagnant energy of Winter and come out of hibernation with positivity, vitality and force. Recipe below.
Stagnation is what often leads to digestive complaints, anxiety, depression and lingering sinus infections (coughs, colds, headaches etc.), so you may be seeing quite a bit of this around at the minute.
Acupuncture works with your body to remove this stagnation, tapping in to your body’s potential to heal and regulate itself for long term health. It’s not about rigid routines; it’s responsive to your need as your body changes and as the seasons change.
