Cute little stick on 🔥moxa🔥 tiles that are so very cute and so very convenient (and relatively expensive so I don’t often use them😂). For smoke reasons we don’t do much in clinic, but often send patients home with a “smokeless” moxa stick (and instructions of course💯) to treat conditions like cold hands and feet, poor blood circulation, diarrhea, breach babies, poor immunity, and so much more. Moxa (mugwort 艾叶) is quite the magical herb 🌿✨ . . . #moxa#moxibustion#chinesemedicine#vancouvertcm#selfcare#vancouveracupuncture#vancouverhealth#holistichealth
Because it’s spring and the organ for spring in Chinese Medicine is the liver, side-bending is great to detox the liver as the gallbladder meridians zig zags along the sides of the ribcage. The gallbladder is the yang associated organ for the liver. Interlace the fingers and hold the hands above the head and lunge to one side as if ringing a bell. Repeat side to side. Add the shhhhh.. sound to add extra purging for the liver. Think shit or shoot. Get out that aggression that is a little more close to the surface these days!
End by placing your hands on the liver and smiling to your liver. Imagine fresh green grass colour wrapping your liver.
