THIS IS ANCIENT MEDICINE

 

FOR MODERN TIMES

 

 

 

Patricia and Gail offer treatments which focus on the seasons and each solstice and equinox.

 

 

Spring equinox — a time of new growth.  The growth can be upwards, like new branches and leaves from the top of the tree, or lengthening and deepening the roots at the bottom of the tree.  The element is Wood, the color is green, the organs are the Liver and the Gall Bladder.

 

The Liver is the “General in Charge of Making Plans”; the Gall Bladder is the “Official of Wise Judgments and Decision Making”.  So, someone who has gall bladder complaints may have difficulty in making decisions and carrying out plans.

 

The new branches and leaves can be new plans and ideas in what you are going to do with this life, this week, this season, this year.

 

Many activities of the coming months are laid out now, as in making budgets, planning vacations, looking at seed catalogues and planning the garden.  Or it may be the updating of your resume because you can see yourself in a new career.

 

The Liver governs the eyes and your vision, not only what you actually see with your eyes but the ability to look forward and envision your pathways before you.  Acupuncture can help with eye ailments, dry eyes, headaches behind the eyes, and clarity of the mind’s eye to see ahead.

 

Perhaps, because your Liver has become toxic from foods…or attitudes, you may find yourself becoming impatient and experiencing discontentment.  Detoxifying the liver is important to your health; with Oriental medicine, we can help you improve your ability to accomplish your plans.

 

The Liver also governs fingernails and toenails.  Let us help you eliminate brittle nails and the frustrations that lead you to chew your nails.  We can even help with toe nail fungus, safely, without dangerous medications.

 

Wind is recognized as one of the predominant weather patterns in Spring, which brings stiff necks and headaches, especially at the back of the head, because there are acupuncture points located there called ‘wind gates’.  We can treat these headaches.

 

Wood’s color, green, can readily be seen all about you in new growth of plants and trees.  Its color in the skin is the most difficult of the Five Element colors to be identified but it might be discerned in a tinge of darkness about the mouth or simply, generally, in the person who doesn’t look good wearing green.   When this is evident, it indicates blood stagnation, which leads to the sense of stiffness felt upon first moving about.  Acupuncture is so good at moving the blood, which is important for even more serious considerations, the prevention of heart attacks and strokes.

 

The emotions of the Season of Wood are patience, impatience, anger, tolerance, contentment, pleasure in life and living it.  Remember, one of the basic concepts of Oriental medicine is that health begins at the mental/emotional level, and when an imbalance is not addressed at that level, it rises to the physical level.  It’s at that time that many people go to an M.D. and get prescriptions, which may have scary side effects and may lead to surgery.  Turning to acupuncture can save your chewed nails, your sense of annoyance, and your Gall Bladder, the “Official of Carrying Out Plans.”

 

 

So please call us – we’ll be delighted to assist in acupuncturally fertilizing your Spring garden of good circulation, clear vision, well-laid plans and contentment with life.

 

There is a different Element for each season of the year, as with Summer, the element of fire, and Fall, the element of metal, and Winter, the element of winter.  And for each Element and season are different descriptions of the Officials and Organs involved and emotions and illnesses.  Acupuncture is not just one style; there are many, many different types of acupuncture, but this is one of our favorites, partly because when it is explained to you, it makes so much sense.
