Spring into Acupuncture: The 6 Signs You Need an Acupuncturist Visit
With winter weather moving behind us, allergy season is just about to rear its predictable head. According to Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM), the liver starts to readjust for the upcoming spring season, making it more vulnerable.
That said, this is the time that the liver shows imbalance, making it a necessity to have an acupuncture treatment to get everything back in line again. But how will you know you need acupuncture? Watch out for these 6 signs!
1. Your tension levels are over the top
As TCM mentions, the liver should create a smooth flow for the body. But when it’s not balanced, your stress can take over. How’s your posture? If it’s too rigid and your shoulders, back, and neck ache, acupuncture can help. Additionally, clenching your jaw and shallow breathing are signs of tension mounting that shouldn’t be ignored.
2. Headaches and pains are taking over all over
Along with that tension, you probably have more frequent headaches. You may even notice other aches and pains in your body. For women, menstrual cramps can become far worse in spring.
3. You find stiffness in your muscles and joints
Wait, isn’t winter’s harsh, cold weather responsible for that? Nope! In spring, when your liver is shifting to the new season, it is very easy to become stiff and feel impacted mobility. The gallbladder, which works with the liver, is responsible for nourishing the ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues here, which is why acupuncture can bring relief.
4. You’re irritable about everything
Everything around you might be all rosy and fine, but if you feel like you could explode over the simplest things, you could do with acupuncture. Your liver ties to emotional symptoms like anger, and having it balanced can bring you back down to your normal level.
5. Digestion seems a bit unusual
Has something changed in your digestive system? Whether it’s how frequently you have to go or the appearance of your solid waste, this disrupted flow is a sign that you need balance.
6. Your eyes are going crazy
Eye fatigue is much more common now with more screen time, but with disturbances in the liver, you will notice poorer vision, dry eyes, and even eye pain.
