How Acupuncture Can Help You Find Balance in Spring
Shaking off that dead winter vibe isn’t always easy. That’s why acupuncture may help you get more acclimated to the change in seasons. Welcome the bloom of new plant life and warmer weather while getting your body harmoniously aligned with spring.
Here’s how acupuncture can help bring back that balance.
– It gets rid of tension
Tension is a common feeling as the seasons move from winter to spring. In fact, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it is the liver that is synchronized with that flow through the body. When things aren’t running smoothly with your liver, that emotional stress, tense posture, and jaw clenching become more noticeable. Acupuncture can help you release this tension for a positive vibrational flow.
– Get relief for headaches and pains
Winter leaves our bodies stagnant. Sometimes, we all need a little tweak to get things moving again. This is why you may be experiencing more headaches, pain, pressure, or tightness. For women, menstrual cramps may also worsen during this time, making a session for acupuncture in spring a necessity for your health.
– Release stiff muscles and joints
Lagging from winter can create an increase in the stiffness and tightness of your muscles and joints. The liver and gallbladder are the ones to nourish the connective tissues, so it is important to clear the blockage for better mobility.
– Relax more
Spring should be a time of happiness and cheer. With all the green colors sprouting up around, you’d think you’d be happier, but you’re just irritated and frustrated. Again, those liver imbalances carry with them heavy emotional symptoms. Release them through acupuncture and you will be able to relax more and enjoy the beauty of this season.
– Repair digestive interruptions
Digestion is also a common problem when we move from winter into spring. The disruption of the harmony here can contribute further to the other factors listed above. By relieving this burden, you’ll have better digestive health as well as immunity, which is closely linked to gut health.
– See more clearly
Again, the liver is linked to eye troubles. If your vision seems suddenly off, your eyes are dry, or they experience fatigue, it’s a sign your liver needs balancing.
