Hello <<First Name>>,
Welcome winter: it's time for a gentle transition from autumn to winter
With the advent of winter, the days become shorter and colder, and yang moves into yin. According to Chinese medicine we move from the metal element of autumn and harvest, the Lung and Large Intestine organs, the nose, skin, grief as well as awe and inspiration, into winter, the water phase of storing, the Kidney and Bladder organs, the ears, bones, fear, courage and ambition.
It is believed that by harmonizing yourself with the seasons you can stay healthier and prevent disease. The Kidneys hold our body’s most basic and fundamental energy. Rest is important for revitalizing the Kidneys, which is why some animals hibernate in Winter. It is time for introspection and consolidation, to recharge your batteries and cultivate personal practices such as a healthy diet, exercise like taiji and qigong, getting enough sleep and relaxation. These changes may not be easy to implement and I find a little fine tuning with an acupuncture session helpful to rebalance the system.
Back to Breathe
The gyms are reopening TODAY and will remain open in all 3 Tiers. So, after a temporary move to treat urgent and high need patients in a garden clinic in Camden (thank you Tom for use of your lovely cabin), I'd like to welcome you back to my clinics in Breathe Covent Garden in Jubilee Hall Gym in The Piazza and Breathe Waterloo in the Colombo Centre.
Breathe will continue to implement Covid-19 safety measures. We are satisfied that the clinics meet the Government and British Acupuncture Council guidelines. Watch video
