The Full moon on December 13 is called the “Cold Moon” because it occurs at the longest, darkest time of year. It is also another Super moon, which appears larger and brighter than regular full moons. Now with a meteor shower happening and the Winter Solstice, on December 21, this is energetically an exciting time of year. Traditionally, this is a time of celebration of the returning of the Light and can fill us with good cheer.
Keeping up with all this celebration increases our need for self-care. In Chinese Medicine, taking time out to rest is an excellent way to cultivate energy to maintain good health and balance and stay grounded especially now. It takes energy to be of good cheer!
The Holidays can be stressful, which taxes our immune system and burns out our adrenal glands. Giving yourself and your loved ones the gift of healing sessions is priceless. Acupuncture resets and refuels our energy levels, boosts our immune systems, speeds recovery of colds and flues, and helps with insomnia and fatigue and emotional imbalances.
Taking time out of this busy season to rest is an act of kindness and compassion. This has a loving ripple effect on all those around us. We are all in need of more loving kindness! This very healing way of being creates vast changes within and has a positive impact on others.
A lightness of being during the darkest time of year gives us a sense of empowerment and joy.
I recently went to Catalina Island to relax and play with my beloved. This was just what the Doctor needed! I feel rested and rejuvenated and ready to help you. I’m so grateful to be of service with all your healing needs. From my house to yours, I wish you the best and brightest this Holiday season!
