Let's Put a Spring in Your Step!, Mend Family Acupuncture and Healthcare in Los Angeles, CA

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each season of the year is associated with an organ/channel – and Spring is the time of the Liver. 

Spring is the time of year that our Liver energy begins to rise and move outward. We come out of Winter "Yin-Hybernation" which is characterized by the Kidney Channel with stillness, darkness, and slow energy.

Spring signifies a rebirth of active energy and a burgeoning of Yang. The color associated with the Liver Channel is green and in Spring there is a flood of green growth!. That growth and boost of energy is not just happening on the trees outside, but also within ourselves. 

This shift can sap of us energy and be a little shock to the system. So come into Mend for a Spring tune-up and energy boost. Acupuncture and an Herbal Formula can support your Liver and help your body adjust to the new season.
