Summer Landscape

Summertime and the Livin is Easy!

The Summer is associated with the Fire Element. The heat generated by summer helps us relax. One of acupuncture points on 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.

Spring is in the Air

As the days become warmer and brighter, we look forward to the new growth of spring. The Wood element, which has been at rest, storing and concentrating its energy under a winter blanket, now bursts forth with new buds and new life piercing Earth’s crust.  Wood in spring initiates birth.

Harvest Time!

Late Summer is an additional Season (the Fifth Season) that the Ancient Chinese observed existed in nature.  It is no longer Summer – it when the days shorten and the evenings are heavy with haze. So if you feel it is no longer Summer and not yet Autumn, we are in Late Summer.
