Spring Wellness with Chinese Medicine
The first in our Five Element Series, this workshop will explore ways to support health and wellbeing in summer through principles of Chinese medicine. The class will be taught by Kim Christensen, licensed acupuncturist and co-owner of Constellation Acupuncture & Healing Arts.
After a long winter’s hibernation, most of us are ready for the change and vibrancy that spring brings. According to the Chinese medicine five element system, each of the five seasons corresponds to a different element, energetic meridian, taste, emotion, and more. During the lush, rainy, windy, and somewhat unpredictable season of spring, the Wood element takes center stage as nature – and our bodies – wake up after a winter slumber.
In this 60 minute workshop, we will explore the influence of the Wood element in the season of spring and how this impacts body, mind, and spirit. You will learn actionable ways to support your health and wellbeing through food therapy, lifestyle practices, and self-acupressure, inviting greater ease through the seasonal transitions.
Stay tuned for our upcoming Five Element series classes for summer, late summer, fall, and winter!
