Immediate Action Needed to Protect the Acupuncture Profession
“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.” –James Dent
Summer is nature’s season of growth and maturation. Flowers and fruits are all around us, and our gardens are growing tall. The summer season is one of expansion and marks the height of yang energy, a time of unmatched energy and activity. It is a time in which we are more open to the world and ready to socialize and connect with family and friends. This is a period of expansive joy and love.
A summer diet should be filled with plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables. This is a time to tend yourself by eating lighter, nutritious meals to fuel your summer adventures. Continue to tend your body by paying attention to those things you may have been neglecting throughout the spring and winter seasons. This is the time to get on a self-care schedule with acupuncture, tending those headaches, back pain, and digestive issues.
One of the organs associated with the season of summer is the Heart. Take this time to address issues around insomnia, depression, palpitations, social anxiety or relationship issues. Acupuncture can be quite useful in helping you connect with others when feelings of isolation set in, and the summer season is the perfect time to let your hair down, laugh, and play with others.
Make this the season you finally tend yourself with the kindness, compassion and love you deserve. Acupuncture can be used to tend yourself for the sake of each and every person in your life. Remember, the happier you are, the happier those around you will be. Call today to set up your free acupuncture consultation.
