This Season ...



The Summer is associated with the Fire Element.  The Element corresponds with the season when annual growth is at the height of maturity. Openness and warmth are associated naturally with this Season of Summer, not only in the world about us but in ourselves also. The Element's gift to us is the ability to share that openness and warmth with other people, to love and be loved in equal measure, and to aspire to the highest level of maturity of which we are capable. The heat generated by the Summer helps us relax.

If the energy is not flowing well in a person however, there may be no summer in his/her life and joylessness and a state of tension will pre dominate. One of acupuncture points from the Fire Element is called 'Relax and Joy' - what a fantastic point to help someone who cannot experience that heat and the relaxing effect it has. With that relaxation comes a joy - giving us the ability to enjoy our friends and family; being outdoors and just enjoying life!


'Palace of Weariness' is another acupuncture point on the Heart Protector meridian/pathway. In ancient times in China a messenger would bring the Emperor news from far away. This messenger would travel hundreds/thousands of miles to bring this message and would be weary/worn out on arrival. He would be brought into the Emperor's Palace and he would be cared for and restored to health and balance with loving kindness and appreciation for his work. This point brings us into the very Palace that dissolves the Weariness - the Palace was the home of the Emperor in ancient times - the Emperor was equivalent to God - this point imbues us with a loving kindness, dissolving hurt and a feeling of being unloved; it restores our ability to love and be loved free of past experiences. What a point! Summer energy supports our capability to form relationships and have an easy flow in interaction - it helps us to feel warmed and enlivened by the interconnected web of relationships we have with our fellow human beings every day.Enjoy!

    Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/declanrothwell/ on line 99

    In November 2003 I was introduced to CF-EA by my sisters - they brought me from an A & E Department to Declan Rothwell CF-EA Practitioner. I didn't know where I was going and I didn't care I felt so bad. l had lost a lot of weight and was far too thin, I had spent most of 2003 in A& E with an irregular heart beat. I had a lot of problems I was suffering from depression, anxiety, digestive and heart problems, low blood pressure and many more. Little did I know on that day in November my life was about to change forever. From my very first treatment I could feel the change.

    I had often wondered what had happened to me that I had become so ill and it wasn't until I had treatments of CF-EA that things became clearer to me. I had not grieved. In 1990 I and my daughter suffered a terrible loss. We lost a husband and father whom we loved so very deeply. Between 1990 and 2003 I was constantly ill - the strep throats were the worst, I was hospitalised on numerous occasions. CF-EA has helped me work my way through the many stages of grief and once I started to deal with the grief, very slowly I began to feel better I started to put on weight and from there all my complaints started to disappear one by one. The journey back has had its ups and downs and has been a long but also amazing one and I firmly believe that without CF-EA I would never have made it back from that dark place. I continue to have Acupuncture to help me deal with the stresses of everyday life.

    My life now is very different thanks to Classical Five Elements Acupuncture - I'm Flying High.
