Spring Seasonal Treatment

Spring Tune-Up (March 15 - March 30, 2017)

Everyone is very excited in spring. The days get longer, the weather gets warmer, and flowers start to bloom…

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, whenever there is a seasonal change, the energetics in the atmosphere shift and the Qi in our body shifts as well. Each season is connected with particular organs or meridians of the human body. Treatment is more effective for these organs if done during their season. Spring organ/meridian connections are Liver and Gallbladder. The Liver and Gallbladder meridians control muscle, tendons, eyes and genitals, regulate blood volume and emotional changes, and maintain the free flow of Qi.

"You can think of the world as a macrocosm, and the body as a microcosm. The changes that occur in the universe naturally occur in our bodies. Just like the change of seasons, our body is going to shift into the energy of Spring - whether we want it to or not.  Winter was the most Yin of the seasons and relates to suppression. Winter is dark, cold, slow, and inward in nature. Spring is the most Yang of the seasons."

Acupuncture can reduce the frequency of migraines

This past week, CNN highlighted the results of a clinical study verifying that acupuncture can reduce the frequency of migraines and prevent future attacks.

From CNN:

"A study published Monday in The Journal of the American Medical Association said acupuncture may be helpful in reducing the frequency of migraines and preventing attacks.

Researchers in China found that properly administered acupuncture therapy may reduce the frequency of the most common types of migraines. The research, which builds on a body of knowledge from smaller studies, looked at how true acupuncture compared with sham acupuncture in reducing migraine attacks and symptoms in those who have been battling the condition for at least a year.

All treatments were administered by trained and licensed acupuncturists who trained for at least five years and had four or more years of clinical experience. Recipients of 'true acupuncture' were treated in four acupoints chosen by clinical experts. The four points used for the 'sham' group were chosen to avoid migraine relief.

Twenty weeks after receiving treatment at five times a week, patients in the true acupuncture group saw a reduction in the average number of migraines from 4.8 per month to 3 per month, with no adverse events reported requiring 'special medical intervention."
