Allergies

The One Hour Vacation

It’s time for a tune up!

 

In Chinese Medicine, we acknowledge that Summer brings the gifts of laughter, partnership, and joy. This is seen by our desire to vacation with loved ones, have fun and break loose, and have more get togethers with old and new friends.  In Summer, our Heart, Pericardium, Small Intestine and San Jiao are at their peak of functioning and at their most vulnerable.  If challenged, you may notice some issues with regulating your body temperature or fluids- hello edema! Swollen ankles, anyone?  If this is an issue for you, you can add 2 handfuls of watermelon to your diet daily or try Job’s Tears… and don’t forget your regular acupuncture treatment.

Late Summer brings the gift of harvest time, all of our hard work is paying off and especially for farmers and gardeners we can see the ripe fruit and vegetables in abundance to eat. We get a feeling of “life is good and easy” because there is plenty of food and a general sense of putting our feet up to relax. The gifts of Late Summer are empathy, sympathy, mothering oneself/tending to oneself versus how we take care of others. There is a lot of digesting life, making life a part of us- the way we go on vacation to a new land, consume the culture, the food, the energy of a beautiful and interesting place as we try to take it back home with us as part of our new life experience. In Late Summer, our Stomach and Spleen are at their peak of functioning and at their most vulnerable. If this is a difficult time for your body, you may notice more loose stools or irregular digestion, stomach bloating or cramps, or gas. Try fresh mint in your diet, add to smoothies or salads, or as a cup of tea.

If you’re finding Summer or Late Summer a difficult time, emotional or physically, don’t suffer alone. It’s time for a tune up. Schedule your appointment with one of our wonderful acupuncturists, available in White Marsh or Timonium, Monday thru Saturday as early as 7am, as late as 7pm.

 

Acupuncture is the perfect one hour vacation, with benefit to your mind and body.

The Jade Crystal Facial Roller Also Helps Puffy Eyes

Whether from Allergies or Trouble Sleeping, the Jade Crystal Facial Roller can help reduce puffy eyelids by improving lymphatic circulation. The smaller roller ball is the perfect size for the eye area, whereas the larger roller is useful for providing a lifting effect to the face and improving skin tone. Keep in the refrigerator for even more benefit to facial swelling and discomfort from allergies.
We use the Jade Roller during the Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments to enhance the anti-aging benefits of the treatment. We have Jade Rollers available for purchase today.

We are always happy to help with wellness tips and creative, innovative ways to feel better.

Jade is a traditional stone used in Chinese culture for the benefit of circulation, heart health and beauty. You may have noticed we use another jade tool for manual soft tissue work called Gua Sha, which is amazing for breaking up stubborn muscle knots and healing muscle injuries. Gua Sha is included for free with your acupuncture session, when clinically appropriate.
