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

    One of “ The Greatest Days Of My Life “ was going to “ Classical Five Element Acupuncture “---I had no recommendations but had observed for some time the “ Sign “ for this form of Acupuncture with no idea of what it had to offer. Feeling quite fragile and exhausted after experiencing a number of devastating family losses over a period of 5years----I decided---“ I will give this a try “---------------What a wonderful decision for me to make.I found the treatment from Declan ( who is so dedicated ) so uplifting that I had felt similar to what a “ Grand Piano “ must feel been finely tuned by a Master. I was equally fascinated by the 1hr session which was constantly focused on working with the patient.( this is very unique and unheard of in Western Medicine ).He certainly helped lift me to my feet when my wings had trouble remembering how to fly. The winter look left my face and the sun and laughter came back into my life. I could see and hear better.

    I have been so enriched by meeting this man and his form of Medicine. I will continue to “Top Up “ to help maintain this great Mind, Body, Spirit Balance---If I had one wish---It would be that others could experience the profound sense of well being that this has brought into my life.
