Wood Element/Spring & Acupuncture Theory VIDEO: Tips to Keep Your Wood Element Balanced as we Head Into Spring

by Inger Giffin, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac.

As you watch this video, if you suspect you’re a Wood type because you see these qualities in yourself…remember!…it doesn’t mean that you’re like this all the time, or even that you ever display the extremely imbalanced traits that I discuss here. Those who are very unbalanced in their element display the most exaggerated traits of that element, which are helpful to use as teaching points to illustrate the underlying drive of the element. But in many people it’s likely that the imbalances will show up as less dramatic displays of the same energy.

The point is to see if you tend to go towards these qualities under stress. The goal then is to balance the elements so that we express the positive and wonderful traits of our elements without being so challenged by its weaknesses. To learn more about the Wood Element and how it relates to impatience and agitation, as well as other symptoms that often come along during the Springtime, follow the links.
