Springtime in acupuncture

‘If winter is not restful and we are tired at the end of it, then it is hard to join in with the surge of energy which accompanies the beginning of spring.’ Isobel Cosgrove,  mentor for acupuncture practitioners .

Spring, a time of new green shoots of recovery, is considered to be the season when liver energy is very active in traditional Chinese medicine. Any imbalance in Liver Qi can result in stress, headaches and irritability. Acupuncture restores the balance.
