Spring is Here!

Do you know that there are actually two “first day of spring” dates commonly in use? March 1 marks the meteorological first day of spring. But the astronomical first day of spring, marked by the spring equinox, falls on March 21 this year. Either way, spring is here!

The changing of the seasons affects our Qi – how our energy manifests in our bodies. We may feel sluggish transitioning from winter to spring. This may happen because our winter diets are heavier in calories in response to the cold. And we may not be as physically active, especially during Covid, when many gyms and sports facilities were closed.

But springtime is full of potential and the natural world responds with budding trees and migrating birds.  Our bodies also respond to the warmer weather by coming out of “winter hibernation”.  Many people undergo a spring cleansing diet or liver detox at this time because they feel sluggish.

I want to help you take full advantage of the energy and possibility of springtime, so if you are feeling stuck or sluggish, schedule a seasonal acupuncture tune up with me. Acupuncture is an excellent way to get Qi flowing, and to improve your overall health.
