Summer is a time of exuberance and expansion. Everything in nature thrives and new life blossoms in a myriad of expressions. We experience this natural change of season with a renewed sense of energy, increased activity and a willingness to try new things. Having a healthy body, mind and emotional sense of well being will help us to naturally feel the flow of energy and renewal at this time of year. If you feel a little out of balance, physically or emotionally, are low on energy, lacking enthusiasm or generally out of sorts, then Chinese medicine treatments can be highly beneficial.
Chinese medicine, at it's core is about energy or qi (chi) It's deep knowledge pertaining to the energetic processes of the body have accumulated over five thousand years. This makes this system of medicine an ideal option to help boost your health and help you feel enriched with a vibrancy to help your mind, body and spirit.
Traditional Chinese medicine says that summer belongs to fire, one of the five elements in Chinese medicine. Fire is symbolic of ultimate activity or greatest yang, which means that it is a time of heat and moving outward in nature and in our lives. In human anatomy, the heart, mind, and spirit are ruled by the fire element. Top priority should therefore be given to the heart, mind and spirit for staying healthy in summer.
When the fire element is in balance, the heart is strong and healthy, the mind is calm and sleep is sound. Indicators of an imbalance in the fire element include agitation, nervousness, heartburn, and insomnia.
Chinese medicine treatments like acupuncture, acupressure (therapeutic Chinese massage), cupping and herbal medicine are an excellent way to help improve balance internally, release stagnant energy in the body, help release toxins, and enable you to to thrive energetically. They can also be effective treatments to help strengthen the immune system, nourish the blood, increase lymph circulation and promote deep sleep and relaxation.
