A Health Maintenance Program – Four Seasons Acupuncture Therapy
As we make preparations for seasonal changes, we must address our body which protects us from seasonal diseases.
According to “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine”, one of the Chinese classics of Taoism, we learn that:
“In the past the sages were able to observe the signs and adapt themselves to the natural phenomena so that they were able to live long lives. If one does not follow the play of the elemental energies according to the season, the liver energy will stagnate, resulting in illness in the spring. In summer, the heart energy becomes empty and the yang energy is exhausted. During the fall there will be congestion of the lung energy. In winter the kidneys will be drained of yin.”
The transformation of energy in the four seasons is the basics of the growth and destruction of life. The sages were able to cultivate the Yang energy in spring and summer. They conserve the Yin energy in the fall and winter. Therefore, the change of Yin and Yang through the four seasons is the key for better health. By respecting this natural law, it is possible to be free of illness.
We offer an evaluation of your energy balance and offer patient-specific suggestions for adjusting to the upcoming seasonal energy changes. These seasonal specific “tune-ups” are essential for having continuous good health.
