Spring is finally here! It seems like we can finally say hello to this warm weather, it is divine and looks like its here to stay!
Spring is all about growth, new beginnings and nurturing ourselves! It is a time for goal setting and moving forward and shedding anything patterns or emotions that no longer serve us.
In Chinese Medicine, Spring is related to the Liver and Gallbladder and these organs pertain to the wood element which is about growth and movement. The Liver and Gallbladder help the detoxification process so Spring time is a great time to give your life and body a detox. Whether that be a detox from social media or electronics, a detox from certain people or things in your life or a body detox to help your Liver and Gallbladder to function a bit better.
