The link between human nature and Chinese Medicine has understood a rich and deeply connected relationship between human beings and their environment for centuries. The relationship plays a strong role in helping the human physiology and psyche transition as well. Through centuries this shift or solstice change of seasons adjusts itself as if my magic this shift takes place with no abrupt or noticeable event taking precedence. One season is no stronger or weaker then the other.
This time we support the upcoming autumn or fall season of dry and cool air and leave behind the summer heat. The body needs to transition from one time of year to the next just like the seasons, the human spirit can become disengaged from the environment when these natural shifts occur in the environment. The body-mind does not sense this subtle shift or realize its value especially when our lives are so engaged with everyday family and work stress and financial strain of the modern world.
The body-mind needs these same natural adjustments or subtle shifts and acupuncture treatment can assist the mind body and spirit to achieve this shift, often occurring within subtle and quite moments of meditation, prayer and body work each assisting to create the dynamic. Acupuncture treatment will support the shift of physiology as well as spirit while assisting to accommodate the new season to transition the subtle differences in body-mind and physiology from season to season. In this case the summer heat season gives way to autumn coolness. The goal is to stave off symptoms that occur annually and every year as if they are preprogrammed to express at that same time of year. If you’d like to stop these symptoms that seem to occur year after year, an acupuncture session devoted toward seasonal shift of body mind or the subtle body-mind energy is an exact and precise way to achieve it. You’ll be amazed, energized and most likely sleep better too ! Without symptoms that nag at you year after year your body mind and spirit will witness the subtle yet dramatic effects of change that are in synchronicity with the four seasonal change. Since seasonal changes keep happening cycle after cycle and year after year, it’s time you, your mind-body shift as well.
