Springtime Acupuncture

springSpringtime Acupuncture

As spring seems to have arrived at last I thought I would explain how chinese medicine views spring and how springtime acupuncture can help you to transition into this uplifting season.

Acupuncture has its roots in Ancient China when people lived more rural lives and were therefore more in tune with the seasons than we are today.They therefore devised various treatment protocols for the different seasons.

So what’s so special about Spring?

Well Spring in nature heralds the first new arrivals in the animal kingdom – think baby lambs. Plus birds begin to build nests. So spring may well be a good time to think about babies in general. Also the first green shoots of the new plants are beginning to show -so it should come as now surprise that the colour associated with spring is green, so why not eat green? The hours of daylight are getting longer and the sun is helping to warm the ground up , which makes it a good time to start getting out of doors.
