The cold weather is upon us. The body is working harder to keep the circulation and energy following and to keep warm.
It can be that this season shows up the imbalances in our bodies, more aches and pains, more breathless, more tired for instance.
Shiatsu is all about ‘the flow,’ looking to balance the energy and open the Meridians (lines of energy) across the body. This relieves symptoms and releases tension, allow the body to work a little less hard.
The space where I work is a very nursing, cosy and warm space that supports the body on this weather.
You may find me, between sessions, making the most of the space. The electric blanket is on warming my clients (and me) through!
If you’re looking for ways to support yourself and your body a good way to start is to consider the kidneys. The burners of the body, if they are working the rest may well work too!
So keep your midriff warm. Drink warming fluids, ginger and turmeric for instance. Try out some Kidney Qi Gong execises. Listen to your body, rest, sleep, reflect and meditate. And of course Shiatsu is he ultimate reboost so have some treatments to warm up and rebalance.
