How Acupuncture Can Help You This Spring

How Acupuncture Can Help You This Spring

Following the four natural seasons, the body adapts to its environment and puts the necessary actions in place to survive each season accordingly. Following the hibernating winter months, spring is often associated with releasing the stored energy and cleansing yourself in preparation for a new summer. In daily life, we can see this in action by partaking in activities like spring-cleaning our homes and embark on health kicks for a fresh start. While we prepare our homes and lifestyle, preparing our bodies for the season should be another activity to add to the list so that we can feel in the best condition possible.

In acupuncture seasons, the spring season is linked to the wood element and specifically the organ of the liver. As the season changes, it can cause complications for the liver and can lead to your whole body feeling slightly out of sync. While spring is the chance for your liver to thrive, acupuncture may be needed to help your liver to feel settled in the season and get through the awkward transitional period.

In acupuncture, many aspects of the body connect. For example, the liver has an associated emotion and an associated sense, in this instance, the associated sense for the liver is sight. For any eye complaints, acupuncturists will typically work to improve the liver system first.

Also, as spring also brings new plant growth, eyes may suffer as a result of allergies. If you experience eye pain, dry or itchy eyes or poor vision during spring, then acupuncture may help to improve your symptoms and help your eyes cope with the seasonal change.

Feeling tired, achy and lethargic during spring? You are not alone. Many people feel their joints are stiffer and there seems to be tightness and soreness in the muscles as well as increased tension. Following months of hibernation and cold, it is natural that it can affect our joints and muscles and it is the liver system that is responsible for nourishing the connective tissue in our bodies. During this transition phase, it may seem that your liver is not feeding your body as it should do.

While it may seem difficult, getting out for dewy-morning walks can help, and acupuncture of the liver will certainly assist with the re-nourishment of our muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

When your body is under stress, it can cause significant issues to your digestive system. While we often shy away from talking about our healthy digestive flow, it is a critical indicator that your body requires urgent attention. If the energy of the liver system is out of flow and stressed, then your digestion will be too. Fortunately, acupuncture can help to get the energy restored and keep everything working smoothly.
