Are you feeling out of sorts
Do you recognise yourself in any of the descriptions below? Maybe an acupuncture treatment will help resolve physical as well as emotional imbalances.
Joy is associated with the Heart (usually meaning agitation and over excitability) and may cause palpitations and insomnia as well as high blood pressure may be symptoms of an out of balance emotional state.
Anger - the Liver and wood, when this emotion is out of balance one gets headaches when the energy rises and easily aroused frustration
Worry and pensiveness is caused by the out of balance spleen resulting in often over thinking and rumination.
Feeling of grief and unresolved loss is associated with the lungs causing symptoms of asthma, and other respiratory illnesses.
Fear when it becomes chronic can effect the kidneys ability to hold qi and resulting in the inability to hold urine.
The above emotions are also associated with the 5 elements earth, wind, fire, metal and water. When these elements become imbalanced it leaves us vulnerable and open to disease.
Acupuncture seeks to balance the organs and create a harmonious connection between the body and your environment.
