Springtime & Shiatsu, Exeter, Devon

Spring is such a special time of the year, lots of changes are happening, lots of ideas are planted & start to sprout.

The Spring energy is upwards energy, rising & pushing up. It is an energy that can make anything feel possible. When in balance the Spring energy gives us drive & focus.

This year it feels that the Spring energy is very strong. I have noticed that it isn’t such a rising energy as other years. It has aspects if tightness & inflexibility to it. When the Spring energy is out of balance it can be hard to be emotionally flexible, we can feel stuck in a rut.

I think there is more of the stuck in a rut energy around this year. To me it feels quite a constrictive energy, not as expansive as most years.

So what’s all this mean? Well you may be feeling more tired than normal, for no obvious reason. You may be feeling a lot of tension in your body. You may feel lowin energy, in general.

There are a few things that are great for supporting yourself at this time of year:

  • Stretching, yoga or sport stretches
  • Eat light – stay away from fried & fatty foods
  • Drink plenty – water with lemon is perfect, particularly first thing in the morning
  • Early nights where possible
  • Gentle Qi Gong exercising – if you know this form of movement exercise

I’m always happy to discuss lifestyle recommendations & it can be part of a Shiatsu treatment when appropriate. Shiatsu itself can help balance the energy in the body & this can ease tension & stress.
