needles and moxibustion are quite effective in the treatment of painful obstruction. failing to treat stiffness, weakness, pain, numbness and tingling at their onset allows for pathological influence to penetrate more deeply into the vessels, sinews, and bone, before reaching the internal organs and further generating pathological patterns. needle retention time is generally 10-15 minutes. #lifeforce #acupuncture #acupunctureworks #moxibustion #chinesemedicine #avl #acupuncturetreatment #moxa #tcm #facialacupuncture #pain #holisticelemental_changes

the chinese observed five grand divisions of nature that included animal correspondences due to their habits and instincts. tortoise, one of these spiritually endowed creatures, is revered in taoist rites as an emblem of an enduring nature and longevity. presiding in the north, the season of winter, tortoise is the representation of the water element. tortoises’ dome-shaped backs symbolize the sky with markings corresponding to constellations in the heavens; its lower shell touches earth and it moves on waters. tortoise is frequently sculpted in stone as support to huge monuments, as utilized by antoino gaudi in his masterpiece here. #bcn #spain #avl #terrestrial #steadfast #tortoise #turtle #reptile #yinyang #taoist #symbolism #animal #turtleshell #stonecarving #antoniogaudi #pillar #architecture #temple #fiveelementselemental_changes

心 the heart performs energetic functions that are vital to health of body, mind and spirit. on a deep level, philosophically, chinese medicine suggests that it isn’t possible to have health without a peaceful heart. wounds, projections, and miasms held in place by thought, word, and deed are part of the human condition. with humility, resonance with nature, and developing confidence to allow peace as our guide, there hasn’t likely been a better time in history to contemplate higher truths and become infinite.💓 #tranquility #心 #heartspirit #health #rosebush #blooming #fiveelements #nature #inthegarden #peaceful #thetao #tcm #summer #flowers #pinkroses #holistichealth #avl #bodymindspirit #vajrasattvaelemental_changes

today a patient texted me asking how is my “flu kung fu” (i.e. my thoughts on flu shots.) i put together the following to share in response and made the collage too.... in chinese medical theory, wei qi is fierce, combative energy from nutrition, says the ling shu, a medical text compiled in the 1st century bce, one of two parts of a larger work known as the huangdi neijing, or the yellow emporer's divine classic. wei qi is lively and agitated and circulates in superficial tissues, skin, connective tissue, muscles and peritoneum. it radiates to the chest and abdomen. according to the classics, it does not circulate through the meridians, but it flows through the face, trunk, and limbs during the day; at night through the viscera. wei qi is defensive energy. it protects us from external perverse energies by opening and closing pores and warming connective tissues. it concentrates at the sites of acupuncture points, the 'holes of qi,' per se. wei qi represents the whole immune system, from leukocytes to anti-bodies, histamine, bradykinin and serotonin. in short, wei qi is your immunity. feed it well! #weiqi #neijing #yinyang #holistichealth #tcm #food #dietarytherapy #immunity #flushot #chinesemedicine #health #organic #vegetables #acupuncturelife #828elemental_changes

As well most of us know, social media sharing and the drive to stay relevant online for a small business makes participation on social media fairly important. That said, a following that finds posts of interest make the efforts spent to create posts, present them, and  connect via online media, rewarding. If you are drawn to the content of the posts you’ve scrolled through – including their long list of hashtags and where they will lead you, please follow-> Elemental_Changes on Instagram. I promise not to clutter, rather, hopefully, to enhance your Ig experience with some practical and sacred aspects of Chinese medicine, history and practice.

With a Deep Bow & All Best Wishes!
