Allison Camire MAOM LAc. OM Dipl., owner and acupuncturist at North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine discusses how to use acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for a successful spring transition. Acupuncture works for a variety of symptoms such as, pain management, chronic low back pain, fertility, mental health, digestive disorders, and pediatric conditions.
Spring is correlated to the Liver organ and meridian. Since this season is more Yang in character, it inherently requires more movement and energy expenditure. Since the Liver is prone to stagnation it can easily manifest into symptoms such as anger, irritability, and increased menstrual cramping if the additional movement is not provided to our bodies during this Spring season.
With acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine we can help create harmony between your body, the seasons. Health is all about balance! You may notice that certain symptoms become more noticeable during a change in season, such as seasonal allergies, knee pain, general pain conditions, ADHD and painful menstruation. There are many ways that traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture treatments can be used to receive pain relief, relief from digestive disorders, etc. Book an appointment today to see the benefits of acupuncture for your health!
