Beauty in any form takes you out of your head & into your heart. You don’t need to think about something beautiful. It just is. It reaches you on a different level. Certain aromas, visual representations, or a song create highways in our brain that lead us to compassion, gratitude, & joy. Every time we make a new pathway in our brain we open ourselves up & create space for new ideas or patterns to form.
Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is often depicted with roses at her feat & around her head. The rose has a beautiful aroma that gives almost everyone pause as they drink it in. Each petal laying on top of each other & open in its own spiral dance. As it blooms it shows you a beautiful, bright center. When we encounter these beautiful blooms it is almost impossible not to pause & drink them in.
Acupuncture is based on the idea that stuck qi, or energy, causes disease. Trauma lives in our bodies, in our blood & bones. The trauma sits there & incubates over time & gives rise to mental, emotional, & physical problems. To resolve & release the trauma we first need to manipulate the physical body. A physical detox so to speak. Acupuncture helps to move the stuck energy of the body so that blood may flow easier & healing can occur.
In Asian medicine the 7 emotions that are associated with disease are anger, joy, worry, pensiveness, grief, fear, & fright. Each organ in the body has a mental, emotional, & spiritual function. When emotions are repressed or prolonged, they can block the smooth flow of Qi. Your face is an organic map of our emotions; it is how we express ourselves. Over time physical & emotional stresses that have become stuck in the body show up on our face. When that stuck stress is released healing can occur. The body possess innate wisdom & tells us when we are ready to heal something & where that healing should be directed. Acupuncture activates the energy in our body & helps to bring the unconscious to the conscious, boosts the immune system to enable us to handle the detox, & helps us find where we are stuck.
