Spring Liver Love
Spring weather is here! I am so happy to no longer be in the Sierra Nevada mountains shoveling snow. This spring Arizona weather is so gorgeous and I am extremely grateful to be here enjoying it.
In Chinese Medicine (CM), Spring's element is wood, which is ruled by the Liver organ. This is the perfect time to tune up your body with a gentle seasonal shift treatment. Acupuncture, tuning forks, hands on healing, or even guided point location meditations can all be used to give our bodies, minds and souls extra support right now allowing for the natural shedding that takes place after winter's hibernation and holiday treats.
If you tend to get spring allergies, getting treated now before the season gets under way will help you lessen or avoid typical histamine reactions. Anger and frustration are the emotions related to the liver and now is an excellent time to address them. Bring them out of the closet and give them some light and fresh air.
If you want a specialized body or soul cleanse there are many I can recommend based on your CM diagnosis and commitment level. There are so many simple tools that can be applied. I am here and ready to support you begin the transformation process, just ask!
May your days be filled with beauty this season,

Simple Spring tip: To assist the liver's natural process during this time of year add fresh squeezed lemon to your water which revitalizes the lymph system, aids digestion, and cleans the Gallbladder and Liver.
