According to Chinese medicine, each emotion that we feel has a specific impact on the nature of the energy that flows through your body. Anger makes energy rise; we often see angry cartoon characters with steam coming out of their ears and know exactly how they feel. Worry knots the energy and affects the digestion; it’s hard to nourish yourself with a knot in your stomach. Sadness dissolves energy and affects the lungs; we are often unable to breathe deeply or take in anything new and fresh when we are mourning for that which has passed. Fear makes energy descend; you can’t think straight when there is no energy in your head and you feel as though your very foundation has been rocked. Excessive excitement over stimulates the heart and it is only when the heart is calm that we are able to relax enough to sleep deeply and restore our senses.
Transformational Acupuncture treatments are a great addition to Traditional Chinese Medicine as energy is balanced at the level of the chakras. These treatments are also wonderful for helping you move on and move forward when going through grief or divorce.
