In traditional Chinese medical theory, one of the best ways to stay healthy is to live in balance with the seasons. Balance, in this context, means mindfully crafting your diet and certain aspects of your lifestyle based on what season it is.
An easy way to think about this is with fruits and vegetables: we are lucky these days to have grocery stores stocked year round with fruits and vegetables from every corner of the globe at all times of year. That makes it possible to enjoy asparagus into the winter months in northern climates where asparagus would never naturally grow at that time of year if at all. Chinese medical thought prescribes realigning our diets with what would be available to us in the region where we live and at each time of year. continue reading
Ever had one of those days or weeks where you just can’t pull yourself out of bed in the morning? Or perhaps you just can’t say “No!” to the dessert tray. Regardless of the activity, willpower is what keeps some people disciplined. But it doesn’t make you a bad person if you have dessert with every meal, buy more shoes than you really need or take longer to get going in the morning. It just means your willpower isn’t strong. And just like any other habit, that can be changed. continue reading
Stress is something that affects everybody. Stress is defined as a state of mental or emotional tension or strain resulting from demanding or adverse circumstances. This can result in a multitude of symptoms, including headaches, muscle tension, pain, insomnia, worry, anxiety, depression and even disease. And according to a recent survey, nearly 77 percent of all Canadiaans regularly experience physical or psychological symptoms caused by stress. continue reading
Stress is a word many people are familiar with. The dictionary defines stress in multiple ways, but there is only one that matters when we discuss how stress affects our physical bodies. The definition is this, “stress is a physical, chemical or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension.” And while most people think of stress as being detrimental, it truly does have a function in our bodies. Stress is the body’s way of signaling for help or a break in the routine. If we don’t listen to these signals, we can develop imbalances in our bodies, which can then lead to illnesses. continue reading
Cupping is an ancient massage method used in Traditional Chinese Medicine where special cups are placed on the skin over acupuncture /acupressure points and meridians for a few minutes with suction. The suction is created by use of mechanical devices which suck out the air of the plastic cups, or if special glass cups are used, by applying heat to the cup (fire cupping). Usually, a number of suction cups are applied to the patient’s skin for several minutes and then are removed, or for sliding cups, oil can be applied to the skin and the cup is moved along the muscle.
Cupping massage provides relief from muscle aches and pains such as back and neck pain, stiff muscles and will help to restore your mobility and comfort. Traditionally, cupping was used for cough, asthma, arthritis, TB and to help manage acute and chronic pain. Patients report feeling more relaxed afterwards and yet, the benefits can go much deeper then muscles, it can improve your circulation, boost your immune system and stimulate better energy flow.
Cupping is much like receiving a deep massage with sensations such as tightness and pressure. The side effects of cupping are fairly mild with slight discomfort and tenderness and for some, bruising which will fade after 3 – 5 days.
