I’ve noticed from my clients that the cold weather is showing up all their aches & pains & areas of weakness.
Whilst working on people I have noticed less energy in general in people.
It’s understandable in this cold weather. We should be hibernating really, conserving our energy. There is such a demand on us & it becomes difficult to find space to rest & recuperate.
This cold winter weather relates to the Water elements. This is within 5 Element diagnosis, part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The meridians in this element are very important. They hold our core energy. If they are over-used they are unable to feed the other energies in out body.
What can we do to support this energy in this cold weather?
- Rest as much as possible
- Meditate or sit still & quiet
- Get to bed as early as you can
- Wrap up warm – including neck & around the abdomen area
- Eat watery broths, fish & sea vegetables
Also obviously Shiatsu can really help a lot. It can create more resource in the body, in can relieve pain & symptoms & support mental strain.
I have a few spaces left before Christmas, both in Exeter & Dawlish.
