The Emotional Aspect of Health and Acupuncture

We’ve talked around this topic for quite some time but today let’s get down to it.  In Chinese Medicine it was a truth that your body health is a reflection of your thinking. 
 
Modern science tells us:
 
·       Our thought patterns influence our health
·       Pain affects our psychology
·       Our emotional health is part of our health as a whole
 
So why don’t we just relax and enjoy good health in the lovely surrounds of the Glasshouse Mountains, Landsborough Mooloolah and Beerwah?

Rest... Essential or nice to have

Rest is often seen as an 'additional extra' in our modern world.  But is it?

Many essential body and mental healing processes only occur during rest..

But isn't sleeping enough?  Sleeping is important but sleeping isn't rest and rest isn't sleeping..

Examples of activities you might find restful:

  • Reading a book for entertainment
  • Surfing
  • Fishing
  • Gardening
  • Walking (with our without your dog)
  • Writing
  • Watching a sunrise or sunset

Resting activities are proving to have similar benefits to meditation for our health.

Fearless..

Fearless..  Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provides interesting insights into emotions.  

A little background..


TCM identifies emotions as very real energies that have a place in the human body and are capable of causing a variety of physical and mental conditions when out of balance.

This might seem quite at odds with the Western science view of emotions but recent studies have shown that the brain doesn't have a monopoly on memory and emotions - other organs do have the capability to "remember" and "feel".

The Best of Intentions.

Times such as New Year each year inspire us so often to have the best of intentions.  Losing weight, exercising more, taking time out, quitting a habit we don't like are common intentions we develop and sometimes call New Year's Resolutions.

For some this is almost a cynical process as intentions as re set, forgotten and revived year after year.  Of course this may be "that" year where your intentions blossom into action and ultimately to results.  How do we improve our chances?
